EURO legends to choose Carlsberg Man of the Match

Legends will be voting for and presenting the Carlsberg Man of the Match Award at UEFA EURO 2012, with fans helping them make the choice via the UEFA.com match centre.

Legends who have graced past EUROs will be making a key contribution to UEFA EURO 2012 by voting for and helping to present the Carlsberg Man of the Match Award at each of the 31 games in Poland and Ukraine – and fans will join them in deciding who wins the coveted prize each time.

A EURO legend, invited by UEFA President Michel Platini, will be present at each match. A fan vote will be accessible via the UEFA.com match centre, and the EURO Legend will take into consideration the fans' vote before making the final decision on the most outstanding man on the field during the match.

A glittering array of superstars is being lined up to decide who wins each UEFA EURO 2012 Carlsberg Man of the Match Award. Fernando Couto (Portugal), Christian Karembeu (France), Predrag Mijatović (Montenegro), Peter Schmeichel (Denmark), Allan Simonsen (Denmark), Davor Šuker (Croatia) and Patrick Vieira (France) are among those who will act as award ambassadors in Poland and Ukraine.

The presentation of the award by a Carlsberg representative will take place on the podium in the press conference room ahead of the press conference after each match. Once the award has been presented, the EURO Legend will join the Man of the Match in answering questions before the media.

"I am delighted that UEFA have selected me to be part of this joint initiative with Carlsberg," said Šuker, named as Croatia's Golden Player to mark UEFA's Jubilee in 2004. "Representing Croatia at the European Championship gave me some of my greatest footballing memories and emotions, so I am looking forward to visiting Poland and Ukraine this summer."
