Fabio Cannavaro reportedly wins the Golden Ball!

Italy and Real Madrid stopper Fabio Cannavaro has won the 2006 Golden Ball, reports in Spain are insisting.

The defender was already heavily associated with the honour earlier this week and more stories this evening are suggesting that the World Cup winner has beaten Gigi Buffon to the award.

It’s alleged that Cannavaro returned to Madrid following last night’s match against Turkey to find a telephone message from the France Football organisers informing him of his victory.

It’s understood that a photographer and a journalist from the magazine are already on their way to the Spanish capital to make a start on their annual feature.

Although there will be no official announcement until November 27, it seems that the Napoli-native will become the first Italian since Roberto Baggio in 1993 to net the honour.

The last 12 months have been unforgettable for the former Parma and Inter man-marker given the success he has achieved.

He won the Scudetto with Juventus before it was revoked, he led his country to World Cup glory and then sealed a career changing move to Real Madrid.

“It’s been a marvellous year, one full of success and triumph,” the 33-year-old has stated. “Winning the Golden Ball would be a dream come true.”

Cannavaro would also become only the third defender to be awarded the title after Franz Beckenbauer and Matthias Sammer.

If it's true then he deserves it. One of the finest defenders of his generation.

well henry failed on the cup too.

plus ronaldinho beat henry heads up in paris... if that counts for anything.

was a great game, thinking back on it, but it would have been better had lehman not got tossed with a red card.

didn't sol campbell give arsenal the lead before the half?

...nevermind, that was a great game. you just knew barca was gonna come back.

Henry = "Failed on the cup"

The only contender to Fabio would be Buffon.

Yeah , if only it counted the 1st semester , Ronaladinho should definitely win it

And about the cup , well Henry didn't exactly shine but didn't fail either , he scored very important goals and made some great plays

And About Cannavaro doing so good in Real , well after the 2 lyon Games .........

The Party Fred and Carew made upon him

Interesting article.

That arm to Henry's face in the world cup final was disgusting.

I'm no France supporter but that was not a dive.
Sure it was - Arms flailing around like crazy, 3.2 for style
