Many of the usual suspects make an appearance in this year's shortlist. Diego Milito had a tremendous end to the 2009/10 campaign which was topped off by both goals in the UEFA Champions League final win against FC Bayern München. Samuel Eto'o was also in scintillating form for Inter and started this campaign like a train, while the likes of Didier Drogba, Carlos Tévez, Luis Suárez and Gonzalo Higuaín have been prolific domestically.
David Villa's continued sparkle for Spain earned him a move to FC Barcelona, where he joined the ever-consistent Lionel Messi, who is also nominated. Diego Forlán's FIFA World Cup performances for Uruguay earned him the Golden Ball award, while RSC Anderlecht's teenage sensation Romelu Lukaku has also caught the eye. Who do you think is most deserving of a place in our team?
