The identities of the three players still in contention for FIFA’s “Best” award this month were confirmed on Friday.

CR7 among past winners

For those who don’t know, “Best” is the modern version of FIFA’s Player of the Year.

The awards are presented annually to recognize the world’s best performers over the past 12 months.

Previous winners include the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric, while Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski becomes the current champion after winning gold in late 2020.

The latest “best” ceremony is scheduled for Monday, January 17, and the aforementioned Lewandowski, as it stands, is the bookmaker’s favorite to keep his crown.

This, of course, comes after Lionel Messi added a record-breaking seventh Ballon d’Or to his collection after he beat Bayern Munich’s talisman to the Ballon d’Or in late November.

Salah among the nominees

And, as widely expected, both players will be vying for the best award this time around.

Previously, the list of 11 nominees for the award was whittled down to just three on Friday.

Not on the podium were Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Jorginho, who was actually third in the final Ballon d’Or ranking.

Instead, running alongside Messi and Lewandowski for FIFA’s 2021 Player of the Year is worthy of Liverpool’s standout Mohamed Salah:
