The winner of the Golden Ball FIFA 2012 will become official in Zurich on January 7 in a ceremony to crown the best football player of the last year. This year, Leo Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta are the candidates to win the trophy.
Leo Messi ended 2012 in a big way breaking all records for goals scored in a single year. In fact, William Hill, the largest bookmaker in Britain, believes that the Argentine is the clear favorite to win the Ballon d’Or with a share of 1.08 € per euro bet. “The Flea” could thus achieve its fourth consecutive award and become the first player to get four times.
Quite far from the Argentinian lie Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta. The Portuguese could spring a surprise and win the Golden Ball for the second time after having been in 2008, so bettors receive € 8 per euro bet.
Meanwhile, Andres Iniesta closes the list of candidates but does not seem to have much chance of winning the award. The midfielder manchego, recent winner of the award for best player in Europe by UEFA European Championship and made it great has earned to be nominated for the award. Therefore, from William Hillse offers a fee of 13 € per euro bet if Fuentealbilla gets to take the trophy and become the second player born in Spain in winning.
