Against all prognosis, the FIFA has announced recently a suspicious change in his prize, that competes with the Balloon of Gold to choose to the best player of the World. After announcing that it changed the "timing", now know new details. 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 idea, sustain, is to begin to forget to the Balloon of Gold and separate totally of this prize.

And it is that, curiously, the title always has been conceived from the same idea that the Balloon of Gold of "France Football", delivering 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). 

Besides, it knows already the headquarters chosen for the occasion. This will be the city of London and the gala will take place the 23 of the month of October. In this also will designate to the best player, the best eleven, the best goal and the rest of prizes that awarded in the past edition.

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.
