Well, if Cristiano Ronaldo 'bothered' with the election of Modric for the FIFA The Best, probably the get angry go 'in crescendo' in the case that the information of 'Wave Zero' was in the true, and Modric carry also the Balloon of Gold 2018. The news adds that Cristiano Ronaldo would remain like second qualifier in the podium and Antoine Griezmann, third.

Of this way, Leo Messi would remain out of the podium of the Balloon of Gold for the first time from does more than a decade, since in 2007 attained to access to the third position and, from this year, never went down of the three first positions up to now. It will be missing to see if the informations of 'Wave Zero' are in the true, after the disclosure of Héctor Fernández in 'Radioestadio'.

True is that the Croatian midfield player has gone down ostensiblemente his level of game from the big international appointment, but even so it would have kept like favourite.

The possible absence of Leo Messi in the definite podium will be, without place to doubts, a big disappointment so much for the barcelonistas as for the Argentinians, and also unfair taking into account that Leo Messi conquered the 'doublet' of LaLiga Santander and Glass of the King with the FC Barcelona this year, without explaining the Supercopa of Spain, the 'Pichichi' and the Boot of Gold that accredits him at most goleador of the big European Leagues.

The Champions and the World-wide 'bury' to Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo, in any case, conquered a new Champions League with the Real Madrid, and these titles are used to to weigh more for 'France Football' that the national leagues. In France, by the way, surely neither will seat at all well that any of the players that won the World-wide of Russia 2018, does some months, finish carrying the award.
