Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah have made the final three for FIFA’s The Best Men’s Player of the Year award.
Ronaldo and Modric both helped Real Madrid to Champions League glory prior to the former’s move to Juventus, with Salah scoring an incredible 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool.
That means that there’s no place in the final three for Barcelona sensation Lionel Messi, despite his exploits in helping the Catalan giants win the Liga title last season.
For the other individual awards, Courtois, Lloris and Kasper Schmeicel.
Meanwhile, FIFA also announced the three finalists for The Best Men’s Coach award with Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps and Zlatko Dalic making the cut.
Zidane led Madrid to a third successive Champions League title, while Dalic led Croatia to the World Cup final where they were beaten by Deschamps’ France.
