If the 2016 Gold Ball is released in December, the votes will stop at the end of November. So this is the time for the suitors to give everything away.
This is the last straight line! While the end of the year is approaching and with it its prize package, the Golden Ball is in all the heads. Finally, especially the three most serious contenders. We have named Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann. For the first two, we’re used to it. For our Frenchy, this would be a first and it is already a good sign to consider it on a possible podium. So to turn the voices in their favor, as far as to say it right now, one must achieve an impeccable end of the year. Kind of like when your teachers tell you that the conclusion of a dissertation is very important you see? That’s the same! It is necessary to put a lot of view on the journalists who have the right to vote on the winner.
To get there, CR7, Messi and Grizou no longer have so many matches in front of them because the votes will stop on November 27th. As much as to say that what will happen on the lawn of Camp Nou at the Clasico of December 3 will not count. By analyzing the calendar of the three players, there are still opportunities to show up. Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann can thus count on the duel Atlético-Real (19 November) to score points. For his part, Lionel Messi would do well to release a big perf ‘ in Brazil-Argentina (10 November) in qualifying ‘ for the world 2018. Anyway, these are their last cards to play. After that, the games will be done!
