SPANISH FOOTBALL | ANDRES INIESTA 2012 EURO MVP + EURO IDEAL TEAM

Perhaps it is the moment to finally give the next FIFA World Player Award to FC Barcelona & Spanish International player ANDRES INIESTA. Many feel - myself included - that Iniesta should have been given the 2010 Fifa World Player Award instead of Lionel Messi after his great FIFA World Cup performance with winning goal included.

The Spanish midfielder has been announced the 2012 Euro MVP player, that is, the "Most Valuable Player" of the European Nations Cup tournament: the Best. Andres Iniesta was MVP against Italy in the Group C opener, Ireland & in the final against Italy; that is 3 times MVP.

If awards are a factor in the FIFA World Player calculation, then Iniesta shares the same amount as his team-mate Messi , except the European Golden Boot Award which goes to the Argentine with 51 goals in La Liga

Also UEFA & its team of experts has voted & released the list of 23 players that make up the Euro 2012 ideal team:
The names are:

- Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (ITA), Iker Casillas (SP) & Manuel Neuer (GER).
