|Xavi, Messi & Iniesta : the 3 Fifa Golden Ball candidates|
according to the survey.
The survey conclusion gives the following result: the three candidates would be Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta & Lionel Messi. The surprise is that Inter Milan & Dutch International Wesley Sneijder does not make the cut.
The Spanish Sports paper prediction is that this year’s winner will - as well - be FC Bareclona midfielder XAVI HERNANDEZ, with second place going to Andres Iniesta & third place to Lionel Messi., a clean sweep for Barça.
Remember, this news piece comes out of a Barcelona based newspaper, interviewing 75 World Football personalities of which there is a bulk that are retired & have no voting rights. Thus at this moment it is all pure speculation & we all must await the official FIFA announcement. Said this, the “Mundo Deportivo” research exercise does serve to orientate us & the betting houses have taken note making Xavi “hot” favourite.
Stay tuned, we will officially have the 3 candidates in four days. Tweet
