Awards Watch Group stage over, award watch begin! At the conclusion of the Coppa Tradizione, the following awards will be given out: ALL-NEW Golden/Silver/Bronze Ball (most MOTMs, with ties broken up by combined goals & assists, then goals, then clean sheets, then final round reached); Golden/Silver/Bronze Boot (most goals, with ties broken up by assists and then least games played); Golden/Silver/Bronze Playmaker, renamed from last season's Golden Creator award (award for players w/ the most assists, with ties broken up by least games played and then goals); Golden/Silver/Bronze Glove (most clean sheets, with ties broken up by GA per game and then most games played); Most Proactive User (user who gets in their games the fastest, i.e. whoever has the lowest average of days it took to get a game in) To be considered for any award, your team must have qualified for the Coppa Tradizione (sorry Confederation Cup'ers!). There will be 3 writeups- before the Round of 16, before the quarters, and before the semis. Here's where we stand entering the knockout phase: Pre-Round of 16 Awards Watch Golden Ball: Four different players notched 2 Man of the Match performances in the group stage. Three of the four qualify for the Golden Ball award, and those 3 would be leading-goal scorer S. Camara (Montpellier), K. Jones (Stoke City), and D. Graham (Swansea City). All three players are forwards for their respective teams and their performances were enough to put each team into the Coppa Tradizione. Plenty of players have 1 MOTM, but should there be a tie, the player with the most combined goals and assists would win the Golden Ball. Of the three players with 2 MOTMs, Camara so far has 6 goals and 1 assist, Jones had 3 G and 3 A, and Graham has 2 G and 3 A. Golden Boot: Goals were a plenty in the group stage, with the leaders currently sporting 6 goals. S. Camara (Montpellier) and A. Carroll (West Ham) are the two with 6 goals so far. Camara comes as a bit of a surprise, considering his team was not one of the 5 clubs to score double-digit goals. Camara and Carroll have a 2-goal lead on the next closest competitor, as S. Eto'o (Anzhi), G. Castro (Real Sociedad), P. Crouch (Stoke City), and S. Fletcher (Sunderland) all have 4 goals. Golden Playmaker: There's currently a 3-way tie atop the assists leaderboard, with Y. Zhirkov (Anzhi), J. Feret (Stade Rennais), and M. Taylor (West Ham) all having 4 assists. As always though, a big game here or there by any one player has the potential to shoot a player up the leaderboard and into contention. 7 players who qualify for the award have 3 assists, and plenty of players trail the leaders by 2 assists. Yet with all 3 leaders coming from high-octane offenses and group winners, chances are they'll be around to help out their teammates some more in the knockout stage. Golden Glove: Just one keeper had 2 clean sheets in the group stage, and that would be Rogerio Ceni (Sao Paulo). With offense in full-force, that total may just be enough for Rogerio Ceni to place in the awards for goalkeepers. A clean sheet here or there in the knockout phase will likely vault any other keeper into a tie with Ceni, with GA per game being the first tiebreaker. Rogerio Ceni allowed just 3 goals in 3 group games, 1 more than low among all teams.
