LAUREUS: FIGO PAYS TRIBUTE TO SPAIN

World Cup winners named team of the year: "It's a shame for Inter but theirs was a great achievement too"

ABU DHABI - Congratulations to World Cup winners Spain for winning the Laureus World Team of the Year Award.

There are no second or third places at the Laureus awards, but one thing is certain: seeing the most exciting and evocative images of the Nerazzurri's incredible 2010, in the Oscar-like atmosphere here at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, makes you want to go though it all again - repeat another year like 2010, in which Inter won everywhere and everything.

Luis Figo paid tribute to Spain after the prize-giving by sportingly declaring: "It's a pity Inter didn't win, of course. But Spain's achievement was also great too: you can't say they don't deserve this award. Congratulations to them."
