The list of final ten for The Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year award got announced on Tuesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo won the last Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year.

Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah are among the nominees for 2018.

Ronaldo, who won the award in 2017, guided Madrid to their third Champions League title in a row. On the other hand, Lionel Messi scored 34 league goals to guide Barcelona to the Liga title and the Kings Cup as well.

World Cup winners Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane join international team-mate Mbappe on the list. Golden Boot winner Harry Kane is also on sheet among other stalwarts.

Salah, meanwhile, is rewarded for an incredible season at club level with Liverpool. The 26-year old scored a record-breaking 32 goals in 36 league appearances to help the Reds finish fourth on the table. He also inspired the reds to their Champions League finals in almost a decade.

There is further Premier League representation in the form of Belgium duo Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard. Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric also makes the final ten, as he claimed Champions League glory. He also played a massive role in Croatia’s run to the World Cup final – ending the competition as the Golden Ball winner.
