Thumbs up Best Player in Europe




Barcelona midfielder general Andres Iniesta has won UEFA's award for the best player in Europe as he beat team-mate Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.

Iniesta, 28, who was in the Spain team that retained their crown at Euro 2012, won the vote by 53 sports journalists representing each of UEFA's member nations.

Iniesta landed 19 votes to shock favourite for the prize Messi, who picked up 17 along with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The award caps off a fine year for Iniesta after he was also named as the Player of the Tournament in Euro 2012.

In last year's edition of the award, Messi was named as the best player in Europe, with fellow Barcelona star Xavi and Ronaldo finishing in second and third place respectively.
