Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah & Sadio Mane Named on 2019 Best FIFA Men's Player Shortlist


Liverpool trio Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane have being named on the 2019 Best FIFA Men's Coach 10-man shortlist alongside fellow Premier League stars Harry Kane and (formerly) Eden Hazard.

The English-based trio face stiff competition from other major European names, however, with the usual suspects Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also earning a place among the ten selected players.

For the case of Van Dijk, Mane and Salah, the Reds stars played a major role in sealing Champions League glory for the s time, seeing off fellow Premier League rivals Tottenham 2-0 in the final, for whom Kane is awarded with a mention for his efforts. Furthermore, Mane was instrumental in Senegal's trip to the Africa Cup of Nations final, where they narrowly lost to Algeria.

The England forward notched 17 league goals with a further five in Europe's biggest cup competition to be rewarded with a nod alongside now departed Hazard, whose 31 goal contributions last season earned him a big-money move to Real Madrid this summer.

Naturally, sealing the La Liga once again as top scorer and winning the European Golden Shoe, Messi is included, while Ronaldo enjoyed a fruitful first season for Juventus as he secured the Serie A crown with his new side and guided Portugal to UEFA Nations League success over the Netherlands.

Two of the players who featured heavily for the Dutch in that tournament were Matthijs de Ligt - who partnered Van Dijk in defence - and Frenkie de Jong. The pair also played starring roles for their former club Ajax, winning a domestic league and cup double, and reached the Champions League semi finals, subsequently taking the next step in their careers with moves to Juventus and Barcelona respectively.

Finally, but most certainly not least, is Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe. It was another season of pure brilliance for the Frenchman, who secured the Ligue 1 crown as the division's top scorer, off the back of lifting the World Cup with France in Russia last summer.

The fan vote will be equally weighted alongside the votes of other key members of the footballing community - namely journalists, national team coaches and captains. The three finalists for each award will be revealed at a later date

The winner will be announced at the annual FIFA Gala, this year held in Milan on 23 September.

Where is Bernardo Silva and Allison Becker??. Ronaldo doesn't deserve that spot.

He won with Juve

Won with portugal hmm



But in reality it the liverpool man
Virgil van Dijk's
That will win it

A Champions League winner and PFA player of the year, but could Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk's stellar 2019 get a whole lot better?

The Dutchman is odds-on favourite to win this year's Ballon d'Or - and told BBC Sport: "If I am rewarded for the season I had that would be unbelievable and I would be so proud."

Should he win? And who else is in the running? We take a look...

Who usually wins the Ballon d'Or?


Luka Modric won the Ballon d'Or last year, beating former club-mate Cristiano Ronaldo and two men who beat him in the World Cup final
The Ballon d'Or - the award for the world's best player - traditionally used to change hands most years - until the 10-year stranglehold that 6-4 second favourite Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo (five years each) had from 2008 to 2017.

That ended last year with Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric lifting football's most prestigious individual trophy after a Champions League final success and Croatia's run to the World Cup final.

So what do recent winners have in common? Usually they are forwards or creative midfielders - and normally they have just won the Champions League.

The last defender to win was Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro in 2006 after leading the Azzurri to World Cup glory.

Since then, nine of the 12 winners (well, four names - Kaka, Ronaldo, Messi and Modric) have won the Champions League that season.

The only exceptions have been for outstanding goalscoring campaigns - Messi's 91 goals in 2012 and 60 in 2010, and Ronaldo's 66 in 2013.

In theory, the award is for a calendar year but it is mostly the previous campaign that is taken into consideration, with the shortlist usually named in October and winner announced in December.

I feel Alisson and Bernardo silva should have made the list. Salah has no business there. Afcon showing was poor.
