Cannavaro Backs Ramos For Ballon d'Or

Italian legend, Fabio Cannavaro, has tipped Sergio Ramos to have a shot at winning the Ballon d'Or.

Cannavaro, the last defender to win the Ballon d'Or in 2006, told Marca that Ramos can secure a nomination for the esteemed award with an impressive showing at the world Cup.

"He'll definitely be in with a chance of winning the Ballon d'Or if he has a good World Cup. If Spain enjoy a good campaign, I'm convinced he'll be nominated," Cannavaro said.

Cannavaro and Ramos were teammates at Real Madrid until 2009, when Cannavaro moved to Juventus.

Ramos initially put his name in the conversation for the award after leading Real to UEFA Champions League glory, scoring the late equaliser in the final against Atletico Madrid to send the match into extra minutes.

"Sergio tipped the Champions League in Real Madrid's favour. He is the face of 'La Décima'. His goal won the final. It's his Champions League," Cannavaro added.

The Spanish defender scored seven goals, adding two assists, in 53 appearances in all competitions for Real last season.
