LIONEL MESSI, KYLIAN MBAPPE, CRISTIANO RONALDO AND MOHAMED SALAH ARE AMONG THE NOMINEES FOR FIFA’S THE BEST MEN’S PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR 2018.
World Cup winners Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane join international team-mate Mbappe on the list, while Golden Boot winner in Russia Harry Kaane is also included.
