Winners will now be decided by public votes made via FIFA.com, which is available until 23.59 pm on December 9.

Barcelona‘s Lionel Messi and ex-Real Madrid man Cristiano Ronaldo are included in the men’s category, along with four Liverpool players – Thiago Alcântara, Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.

Former Barcelona forward Neymar also makes the list along with Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos and Manchester City midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne.

In the female category, Barcelona players Jennifer Hermoso and Caroline Graham Hansen stand out in a category that also features England star Lucy Bronze.

Chelsea FC Women have three players included with Pernille Harder, Ji Soyun and Sam Kerr.

Three La Liga goalkeepers are shortlisted as part of The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper category with Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois, Atlético de Madrid’s Jan Oblak and FC Barcelona’s Marc-André ter Stegen competing against Liverpool’s Alisson Becker for the win.
