Individual awards

*Major individual accolades including nominations to "teams of the tournament"

Scholes: 2

Pirlo: 11

Xavi: 22

The Barcelona man's class shines through here, he's won double the individual accolades than that of his nearest rival Pirlo.

His awards include the Euro 2008 Player of the Tournament, and no less than five nominations to the FIFA/FIFPro World Team of the Year.

Scholes was hugely underrated during his playing career so it seems, with only two nominations to the PFA Team of the Year to look back on.

Winner: Xavi
