MILAN – The 2011 edition of the prestigious international career award, the Golden Foot, under the high patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, was presented today on Radio Monte Carlo. With the contribution and opinions gathered from last year's winner, Roma captain Francesco Totti, the names of this year's ten candidates were announced: David Beckham (England), Gianluigi Buffon (Italy), Iker Casillas (Spain), Didier Drogba (Ivory Coast), Samuel Eto'o (Cameroon), Ryan Giggs (Wales), Carles Puyol (Spain), Raul González Blanco (Spain), Xavi Hernández (Spain), Javier Zanetti (Argentina).
The names of the Golden Foot jury which is made up of 58 journalists, representing the sports media throughout the world, have been selected. It is the fans, however, who elect the winner of the award and decide who deserves to leave their footprints on the Champions Promenade, a sort of "Walk of Fame" of international football.
You can cast your vote on www.goldenfoot.com until 12:00 GMT (Monte Carlo time) on 7 October next. The prize will be awarded on Monday 10 October in the Principality of Monaco.
