They are the best in the soccer world. England-based players have grabbed all the prize at the UEFA Awards Ceremony in Monaco on August 28,2008. Last season Champion’s League were a memorable one as Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, all EPL team, reached the semifinals. And the battle between two of england’s top team ManU and Chelsea in the finals ends with the former beating the latter on penalties.  

Twenty players were chosen by a team of UEFA technical observers who watched each Champions League match last season. They selected five players in each category of goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and attackers. 17 out of these 20 players were from EPL. And then votes were cast by coaches of the 16 teams who reached the knockout phase of the 2007-08 Champions League. And here is the results:

UEFA club goalkeeper of the year – Petr Cech (Chelsea)

UEFA club defender of the year – John Terry (Chelsea)

UEFA club midfielder of the year – Frank Lampard (Chelsea)

UEFA club forward of the year – Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United)

Cristiano Ronaldo also took home UEFA’S Club Footballer of the Year award.

Another one for my growing collection.

CR7 had a sensational year, scoring 42 goals in all competitions, 8 goals for Manchester United in the Champions League, including a fabulous header in the final game in Moscow versus Chelsea.
