I'm suprised Ronaldo left Real Madrid - Messi

  • Modric Cristiano Ronaldo and Salah

But who will it be?

Cristiano Ronaldo could claim a record sixth men's world player of the year award after Lionel Messi was left off the Federation Internationale de Football Association shortlist for the first time since 2006.

Ronaldo enjoyed another stellar campaign for Real Madrid, helping them to win an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League with 15 goals in the competition, before joining Juventus in the summer.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has not made it into the final three of the award for the first time since the Ballon d'Or in 2006 - when he was just getting started in his senior career.

Typhoon set to bring rain, powerful winds to much of Japan
Television footage showed high waves crashing into breakers and flying debris in areas where the storm made landfall. Typhoon Jebi made landfall in the west of the country, bringing heavy rain and winds of up to 216km/h (135 mph).

At the age of 33, the Italian feels the five-time Ballon d'Or victor should get to grips that he will need to conserve energy to remain at the elite level he's displayed over the last decade.

Reports coming out of Italy suggest that Spanish giants Real Madrid and Serie A champions Juventus are looking at possibly doing a swap deal in the January transfer window.

There is some consolation for Messi as his Russian Federation 2018 goal versus Nigeria makes the list of 10 nominees for the Puskas Award for best goal.

And Messi believes that Ronaldo's move has helped install Juventus as firm favourites for the Champions League in 2018-19.

Federation Internationale de Football Association officially revealed the finalists for this year's Men's Player Award, going to the best player in the world over the past year, and it won't be Lionel Messi.

We have been knocked out in the quarter-finals in the last three seasons. Norway's Ada Hegerberg (Olympique Lyonnais) and Germany's Dzsenifer Maroszan (Olympique Lyonnais) were announced as the other two finalists for the pinnacle award. Marta has won it on five occasions. What makes Ronaldo a prime candidate for the FIFA's best player award is his UEFA Champions League win with Real Madrid. Pep Guardiola of Manchester City was not shortlisted.

The three coaches in contention for the women's game award are: Asako Takakura, who led Japan to the Asian Games title last week, Reynald Pedros of France and Sarina Wiegman of the Netherlands.

The best goalkeeper prize is to be contested by Tottenham and France's Hugo Lloris, Denmark's Kasper Schmeichel, son of Peter, and Belgium's Thibaut Courtois, whose World Cup heroics earned him a move to Real Madrid.
