"They go Dijk was the best player for UEFA. Messi was the best for FIFA. It imagines: Cristiano (merits does for this) wins the BALLOON OF GOLD, would seem me that the guidelines that are still in the football to give prizes does not have a lot of logic, no?", it has asked Boxes to his followers, reopening one of the hottest debates of the world of the football in the last years.

They are not few the followers that have gone in to the cloth and have answered to Boxes with his opinion, coinciding or disagreeing with the guardameta. It fits to remember that Virgil go Dijk was chosen better player of the UEFA, in a prize that voted 53 sportive journalists delivering five, three and a point.

Regarding the FIFA The Best, treats of an award to world-wide level and choose it the captains and trainers of all the national selections of federations affiliated to the FIFA, in the five continents of the globe. Also they vote the fans through Internet, with 50% of weight in the final result. This prize, remember, carried it to him Leo Messi in the past month of October.

The Argentinian is also the favourite maximum to conquer the Balloon of Gold 2019, that will deliver on 2 December and for the which goes back to be nominated beside Go Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo. The reflection of Boxes, in any case, remains something take when it tries to equate the season of Cristiano Ronaldo with the ones of Leo Messi and Go Dijk.

Messi and Go Dijk, with more merits that Cristiano Ronaldo

While the Dutch has erigido with authority like the best defender of the moment, adorning his big performances with titles of relief like the Champions League, Leo Messi has hoarded all the individual classifications of goals in the big Leagues (Boot of Gold) and the League of Champions (maximum scorer), being also one of the best assistants of the continent.

Cristiano Ronaldo, instead, lived the past season the worst year of his sportive career to level scorer since it left the Manchester United by the Real Madrid, and this course neither is finding regularity of face to the contrary goal. It is able to mark 'hat-tricks' against Lithuania, yes, but finds already very far of his best level of performance.
