FIFA have released their shortlist for its end-of-year awards, with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar nominated for the men's best player award.
Ronaldo is the current holder, while Messi also made the shortlist last year. The winners will be crowned in a ceremony on October 23, per BBC Sport.
It's only the second time FIFA will award the title to a player, with FIFA previously working alongside France Football to award the Ballon d'Or as the main award.
Real's Zinedine Zidane is the favourite to win the coaching award, as he's nominated alongside Massimo Allegri of Juventus and Antonio Conte of Chelsea. Carli Lloyd of the Houston Dash should once again be favoured to win the women's player award, ahead of Rosengard's Lieke Martens and Santa Clarita Blue Heat's Deyna Castellanos.
Other awards include the selection of the best goalkeeper―with Juve's Gianluigi Buffon, Real's Keylor Navas and Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer nominated―and the Puskas Award for best goal scored.
