Iker Casillas the next Lev Yashin

It is that time of year, where le creme de la creme of footballers are being penned to be the next winner of the Ballon d'Or award. The highly coveted award, rivaled only by FIFA Player of the Year, is being pursued by Cristiano Ronaldo, Iker Casillas, Leonel Messi and Fernando Torres.

If I was to vote, which one day may occur (probably not) I would cast ny ballot as Casillas to be first followed by Ronaldo, Torres and Messi.

It was the play and marvelous goaltending of Casillas that ended a long drought of under performing at the major football men events. Always being sent home early in the past World Cups, after dominating the opening round, Spain were vexed long enough by winning Euro Cup 2008.
