France Football published the 30 candidates for the Golden Ball, the winner will be announced in December. Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and Griezmann are favorites. But also surprised by the absence of other large players poster. These are the forgotten by France Football:
Karim Benzema. The Real Madrid striker is the most notable absentee from the list Ballon d’Or. The Frenchman enjoys such protection in Madrid which makes its ownership is non-negotiable in the trident is the BBC, but has not been taken into account by the journalists who are voting on this Golden ball FIFA recently divorced. Last season he had 24 goals in 27 league games and 28 goals in 36 matches and lifted the Champions League. In addition, he stayed outside the Euro for their field issues (he is charged with complicity to attempted blackmail and participation in criminal conspiracy under investigation in the case Valbuena).
Gerard Piqué. Particularly striking is the absence of central Barcelona, which itself was listed in 2012 when the team won the European Championship. I pique through one of its best moments, leading the defense of Luis Enrique and Spain, but has been left out of the list of 30 who has published France Football.
Sergio Busquets. Barcelona midfielder not usually appear at the top of such lists despite its vital role in the Blaugrana and in the selection. has not been his best season and played position, less showy than the scorers, it has meant that is left out. Last season he played 53 games in all competitions to achieve the League and the Copa del Rey. This course already has 13 and Spain has played every game starter since the last European Championship.
David Silva. The canary has grown even more relevant in the midfield of Manchester City with Guardiola. It is also basic part Lopetegui national team, but a bad run of injuries did not allow him to have the desired regularity during the past year. Last season participated in 36 games and scored 4 goals and this course has 11 duels with both. It has started with the new coach in every game and scored 4 goals.
Marcelo. Real Madrid winger has proven to be basic in attack and has accused Real Madrid when he has been absent. Again holder with Brazil, is valued in the global top left side.
Jan Oblak. Atletico goalkeeper equaled the record Liaño as goalkeeping in a League season with 18 goals conceded in 38 games. The Slovenian was key to Atletico came to the final of Champions, mainly in an exceptional match against Bayern Munich, where he saved a penalty and kept Atletico in the Allianz Arena.
Thibaut Courtois. The fourth renowned goalkeeper is not on the list. He caught the defensive weakness of Chelsea, lost his poster invulnerable and received 38 goals in only 30 games.
Diego Costa. Trick of hispanobrasileño and great start to the current season. 16 goals with Chelsea over the past year by 7 has already scored this season. He has returned to the team and has made the starting job, where he has scored three goals in the last three games.
Eden Hazard. Like Diego Costa, poor Chelsea last season was represented by its worst. Antonio Conte on the bench seems to have regained the spark and has already scored 4 goals in 11 games he scored 6 throughout the past year.
Alexis Sanchez. Chile led the attack of a deflated Arsenal in the final struggle for the Premier. He returned to win the Copa America for his country scoring three goals and finished the season with 17 goals scored in the English team. This course takes 6 goals in 12 games.
Edinson Cavani. He finished last season with 25 goals scored, even if his aim had been more refined could have been more. In the shadow of Ibrahimovic, this season has begun spearheading the PSG. It takes 13 goals in 12 games with Emery.
