The Federation of International Football Associations(FIFA) said today it will announce the World Cup Golden Ball winner on Sunday right after the final game between France and Croatia finishes.
FIFA added there'll be no candidates nor will it advance any name until the final game is over and there's a new champion.
However, among the press covering the event there are rumours Croatian Luca Modrid and French Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe are the favorite to the Golden Ball.
The Technical Committee of FIFA is in charge of designating the winner of the precious award. This body is made up of Dutch Marco Van Basten, Brazilian Carlos Alberto Parreira, former DT Bora Milutinovic, Nigerian Emanuel Amunike and Scot Andy Roxburgh.
FIFA is confering to more awards: Best Young Player for those under 21 years old and Best Goal Keeper. This prize will be presented to whoever stopped more shots.
The Adidas Golden Shoe will be conferred to the top scorer. So far, English Harry Kane leads this pack. / Prensa Latina
