Trofeo EFE is an annual football award given by the EFE news agency since the 1990–91 season to the best Latin-American player. Recipients are selected based on assessments from the agency's sports editors.
The inaugural winner was Rommel Fernández and the most recent recipient is Keylor Navas. Iván Zamorano and Ronaldo Nazário have won the award twice. Fernando Redondo received a special distinction as the best player of the 1990s decade. Cristiano Ronaldo is the only winner not hailing from Ibero-America. He succeeded in attaining the trophy in 2013.
Lionel Messi won the award a record five times, more than any other player in the history of Trofeo EFE.
