FIFA Best Award: Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are among the nominees after their outstanding World Cup performances.
Messi, who has already received the award once, led Argentina to victory in Qatar, a victory that defined his career and increased his prospects of taking home an eighth Ballon d’Or while also making him a possible favorite to win it.
Another two Paris Saint-Germain players, Neymar and Achraf Hakimi, are nominated in addition to Mbappe, who scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final.
Both Robert Lewandowski, who won the FIFA award the past two years, and Karim Benzema, the Real Madrid player who won the Ballon d’Or last year for his efforts, are up for the award.
The nominees from Manchester City are Julian Alvarez, Kevin De Bruyne, and Erling Haaland; Luka Modric and Vinicius Junior of Real Madrid; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Jude Bellingham.
Despite being out for the previous six months owing to injury, Alexia Putellas is nominated for the women’s prize.
The midfielder for Barcelona and Spain earned the prize the previous year and kept it in October.
The Ballon d’Or runner-up Beth Mead of Arsenal and Leah Williamson and Keira Walsh of the England side that won the European Championship on home soil are also nominated.
Additional awards include the Puskas Award for the best goal of 2022, the best goalie, and the best male and female coaches.
The three finalists in each category will be chosen by a public vote, which is open until February 3.
The winner is then chosen by a jury of journalists, national team captains, coaches, and fans.
The FIFA list of 14 nominees, which looks back at the greatest performers from the previous calendar year, does not include the recently signed Al-Nassr – Ronaldo.
