For the upcoming FIFA The Best Awards, 14 players are shortlisted for The Best FIFA Men’s Player award including Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland of Manchester City. The trio is joined by the winner from the previous year, Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, and PSG’s Neymar and Achraf Hakimi. Also on the shortlist is Karim Benzema of Real Madrid and the 2022 Ballon d’Or winner.

The Spanish champions Alexia Putellas, Keira Walsh, and Aitana Bonmati are represented in the women’s award, while Leah Williamson, Vivianne Miedema, and Beth Mead are the English team’s representatives. Barca and Arsenal each have three players. Even though Putellas missed a large portion of last year due to a knee ligament injury, she still makes the shortlist. Sam Kerr and Jessie Fleming of Chelsea, Ada Hegerberg and Wendie Renard of Olympique Lyonnais, and Jessie Fleming of Chelsea all make the cut.

Who else are nominated for the FIFA The Best Awards?

Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, the manager of Germany, and Sarina Wiegman, who guided England to victory at the 2017 European Championship, are also finalists for The Best FIFA Women’s Coach award.

The men’s Best Manager award is being considered by Carlo Ancelotti of Real Madrid, Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, Scaloni of Argentina, Didier Deschamps of France, and Walid Regragui of Morocco.

The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper nominees include Thibaut Courtois of Real Madrid, Alisson Becker of Liverpool, and Martinez of Aston Villa. FIFA will reveal the three finalists in each category in the first week of February.

The Puskas Award, given to the “most beautiful” goal of the year, has an 11-player shortlist this year, and Mbappe’s spectacular volley against Argentina in the World Cup final is one of the contenders.
