Rio de Janeiro, June 30 — Brazil's Neymar has been included on a six-man shortlist for the FIFA Confederations Cup Golden Ball award.

He will vie with Andrea Pirlo (Italy), Andres Iniesta (Spain), Luis Suarez (Uruguay), Paulinho (Brazil) and Sergio Ramos (Spain) for the tournament's most valuable player award, reports Xinhua.

The players were named Saturday by FIFA's technical study group who will announce the winner after Sunday's final between hosts Brazil and Spain at Rio's Maracana Stadium.

Brazil have dominated the award in the past with four of the six previous winners. Neymar and Paulinho have the chance to join countrymen Kaka (2009), Adriano (2005), Ronaldinho (1999) and Denilson (1997).

With the loss of Luis Suarez this summer, Liverpool will undoubtedly have to bring in a new striker in an attempt to negate the loss of such a quality player. As a result, manager Brendan Rodgers had moved quickly in his pursuit of Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy and it was believed that the deal was all but done when the striker arrived in the United States to meet up with the club’s officials to finalize the £8.5million transfer. However, the move sensationally col ...

Jul 28 2014 12:14pm CDT | Source: Winner Sports
