Drogba, Eto’o nominees for Golden Foot

Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o figure on the list of nominees for the 2013 Golden Foot award, to succeed Paris Saint Germain’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who won it last year.

The Ivory Coast and Cameroon captains are the only African candidates in the lot of nine players vying for the international football award, given to players who stand out for their athletic achievements and for their personality.

The other nominees are Frenchman David Trezeguet, German Miroslav Klose, Italy international Andrea Pirlo, Spaniards Andres Iniesta and Iker Casillas, and English footballers Franck Lampard and David Beckham.

The Golden Foot is awarded to active players of at least 29 years of age and cannot be won more than once.

The eventual winner leaves a permanent mould of his footprints on The Champions Promenade, on the seafront of the Principality of Monaco.
