Lionel Messi has missed out on the Best FIFA Men’s Player award, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah grabbing the top 3 spots.
Reigning The Best FIFA Men’s Player Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the running, while there are two first-time nominees in FIFA World Cup finalist and adidas Golden Ball winner Luka Modric, and Liverpool’s electric Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah.
Ronaldo scored 44 times for Real Madrid last term, including 15 strikes in the Champions League as the LaLiga giants claimed a third successive European title.
Modric was also pivotal to that success before inspiring Croatia’s run to the World Cup final. Salah did not enjoy such a productive time in Russia, as Egypt bowed out at the group stage, but swept the board in terms of individual awards in England after a magnificent debut season for Champions League finalists Liverpool.
Like Ronaldo, Salah netted 44 times across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The Best FIFA Football Awards will be held on September 24th, 2018.
