thumbnail Hello,

Vote for your Goal.com World Player of the Week

Have your say on who you think should win Goal.com's weekly honour

World Player of the Week
Goal.com World Player of the Week is our prestigious weekly accolade, awarded to the individual whose performances across the previous seven days are worthy of acclaim. Each Monday at 13.00CET, our worldwide team of editors put forward a candidate worthy of the title, and this is YOUR opportunity to influence our decision.

Simply leave a comment below between 10.00CET every Sunday and 11.00CET every Monday with the name of your winner, and the reasons for your nomination. Alternatively you can post a message via social media on either Goal.com's Facebook or Twitter pages.

In addition to the victor, we highlight a number of honourable mentions who just missed out on the top prize. It doesn't have to be a Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi - any star of the global game that you feel deserves recognition, let us know, and the best comments, messages or tweets will be included when our winner is announced on Goal.com.

Last week's winner was Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan, who had two brilliant games against Valencia in the Europa League and against Espanyol in La Liga. He fended off the challenges of Arturo Vidal of Juventus, Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery and Mesut Ozil of Real Madrid among others to win the award.
