Cavani was victorious among the 10 nominees for the award which was held in Monaco on Tuesday, October 30.

Not as prestigious at the Ballon D’ or, the Golden Foot award is organised by the World Champions Club.

Unlike most awards, the Golden Foot Award recognises the achievements of active professional footballers who are above the game of 28.


The winners of the award are determined by the votes from the public, media and the organisers.

Despite the prolific nature of Messi and Ronaldo, Cavani beat the two superstars and his own international teammate Luis Suarez to the award.

Other nominees for the award were Gareth BaleSergio RamosRobert LewandowskiSergio Aguero and Thiago Silva.
