• 27-year-old winger on 32-man list of Europe's best players
• 'To be on the list with those people is unbelievable'
Les Davies, a 27-year-old winger who is a cult hero for his club Bangor City, has made it on to the 32-man list of players nominated for Uefa's best player in Europe award.
Davies is rubbing shoulders with the likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Cristiano Ronaldo on the list, with the award ceremony to take place on 30 August in Monaco.
The longlist was drawn up after one selected journalist from each of the 53 Uefa member countries voted for their five best players, and a single nomination – believed to be from the Welsh journalist who voted – was enough for Davies to be included.
"I'm flattered and honoured to be on such a list. I can't get my head round what's happened in the last few days," he told Sky Sports News. "I don't think it is going to sink in for a long time … to be on the list with those people is unbelievable. Just to be nominated in the 32 is fantastic. I'll take that – I don't think I've got much of a chance to make the top three!"
The final three will be announced on 14 August, with the eventual winner to be decided by a live vote of the 53 journalists in Monaco on 30 August.
The 32-player list is: Agüero (Man City), Xabi Alonso (Real Madrid), Balotelli (Man City), Blaszczykowski (Borussia Dortmund), Buffon (Juventus), Casillas (Real Madrid), Cech (Chelsea), Coentrão (Real Madrid), Davies (Bangor), Drogba (Shanghai Shenhua), Fábregas (Barcelona), Falcao (Atletico Madrid), Hart (Man City), Ibrahimovic (AC Milan), Iniesta (Barcelona), Kagawa (Man Utd), Kompany (Man City), Lampard (Chelsea), Messi (Barcelona), Modric (Tottenham), Ozil (Real Madrid), Pepe (Real), Pirlo (Juventus), Ramos (Real Madrid), Raúl (al-Sadd Sports Club), Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Rooney (Man Utd), Silva (Man City), Torres (Chelsea), Y Touré (Man City), Van Persie (Arsenal), Xavi (Barcelona).
