Contenders for the Balloon d’Or prize

It will be awarded to the player who scores the best goal off a balloon lying on the pitch.A lot of painstaking research on the net over a period of five whole minutes has turned up two candidates.One is Darren Bent.His sublime effort is on view in the last post.This second candidate is a player from Sheffield United who also used a balloon to good effect.

This trophy is not to be confused with the Ballon d’Or which is awarded to the European Footballer of the Year – the nominees list of which can be viewed here..Pictures of the respective trophies have been posted to eliminate any possible confusion …
