The FIFA created the year happened the called prizes The Best. Luka Modric Was the first winner of this award in the masculine football after winning the Champions League with the Real Madrid and to having arrived to the final of the World-wide with Croatia. In the feminine football, the Brazilian Marten Scallop was the awarded. The best trainer for the FIFA were the French Didier Deschamps, that won the World-wide with France, and Reynald Pedros, that won the Champions Feminine with the Olympique of Lyon.

The first edition of these prizes was quite controversial by his winners. Many did not understand that Modric conquered the award above Antoine Griezmann, that had won the World-wide and had won the Europe League. Also Cristiano Ronaldo and especially Leo Messi had to aspire to the prize, but the Argentinian not even went in between the ten candidates that opted to the prize.

That a player of the size of the forward barcelonista was not neither between the ten finalists subtracted him something of credibility to the prize, but the '10' wait resarcirse this year. This Wednesday 31 July, the FIFA will announce to the ten candidates of this year for the TheBest . The gala of delivery will be the Monday 23 September in Milan, that substitutes to London like headquarters.

Messi is one of the big favourites to win the prize this year after conquering the Boot of Gold and win another League with the Barça. The one of Rosario could not win the Champions a year more, but gave the face to the end and was key so that the culés could arrive to the semifinals. In Glass, in spite of the defeat of the Barcelona, the '10' marked in the final and did all what could to try give him the turn to the marker.

Neither it attained to win the Glass America with Argentina and remained to the doors of the final. The mates of Leo were not to the height of the captain blaugrana with the Barça and in the selection was missing him luck to the combined albiceleste in the 'semis' against Brazil. But the reality is that this would not have to affect to his candidature to win this award.

The favourites to win

Virgil Go Dijk, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alisson Becker seem the big candidates to be able to remove him the prize to the rosarino. The central Dutch won the Champions with the Liverpool and was chosen the MVP of the Premier League. It is the best defender of the world and could be the first time from Cannavaro that a defence wins an individual prize of these characteristics. Alisson Also could be pioneering if it attained to win, since a goalkeeper does not win it from Lev Yashin. The Brazilian, in addition to the Glass of Europe, also won the Glass America with Brazil, and in both tournaments was decisive with his unemployed.

Cristiano won the Series To and the League of the Nations of the UEFA with Portugal. The luso has not completed his best season and did not mark so few goals from his last year in the United. In spite of this, almost arrives to the treintena of goals and was decisive in the two tournaments that won. Messi will have competition, but expects that his extraordinary individual campaign prevail above the collective tournaments that won other footballers.
