Against all prognosis, the FIFA has announced a suspicious change in the "timing" of his main prize to better player of the World. In this occasion, and unlike how had done always, his "The Best" will deliver on 23 October 2017 and no in January.

The exposed excuse by the maximum organism of the world-wide football is that, like this, will reward to the best in the season 2016-2017 and no in the natural year. Something that definitely will not leave to anybody indifferent.

The prize, conceived from the same idea that the Balloon of Gold of France Football, always had delivered in January. So much in the Fifa World Player (1991-2009) as in the FIFA Balloon of Gold (2010-2015) and in the first edition of the The best (2016). 

A ready prize for Cristiano Ronaldo?

What remains clear with this change of plans, is that the movement of the date will help clearly to the players that win the Champions League. With this, the FIFA could leave him red carpet to a Christian Ronaldo the one who after having tackled a nefasta season, has recovered the smell of goal in the chambers and semifinals of the maximum continental competition.

It fits to stand out also that already there was controversial with the terms in 2013, when by mandate of Blatter decided expand the term of vote. This meant that the performance of Christian in front of Sweden, in the repechage of the World-wide 2014, cost him to win more votes by his "hat-trick". This year it seems that the history goes by the same derroteros, although the evidence and difference between Messi and Ronaldo was abysmal.
