Neymar nominated for Golden Ball

Jun 30 2013, 3:10am CDT | by

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

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).

Napoli deny interest in Mario Balotelli

Oct 30 2014 9:47am CDT | Source: Winner Sports

Although Mario Balotelli did score a vital goal in Liverpool’s dramatic 2-1 victory over Swansea City in the League Cup last night, it is fair to say that the Italian striker’s time at Anfield has been very disappointing. Having scored only 2 goals in 12 appearances so far and failed to find the back of the net in the Premier League, Balotelli is clearly struggling to fill the void left by Luis Suarez. With the 24-year old enduring a torrid start to life in Premier Leagu ...
