FIFA Exclude Messi, Hazard; Nominate Ronaldo, 2 Others For Prestigious Award

Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi has been excluded from the selected football stars for FIFA’s Best award after the final shortlist were leaked.

Messi’s hope of winning the FIFA Best Men’s Player this year has gone down the drain as the Argentine did not make the final shortlist, despite a magnificent season for the La Liga winners.

NIGERIA NEWS gathers that failure to go farther with Argentina at the World Cup or win the Champions League has proved decisive for the selection.

However, the award will be won by one of the following, in a list leaked by Sport: Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah.

The Croatian midfielder has already won best player at last week’s Champions League awards, which infuriated Ronaldo as the Juventus striker failed to turn up for the awards.

Messi was part of the initial top 10 nominees, with Kevin De Bruyne, Raphael Varane, Mohamed Salah, Eden Hazard, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe who were all snubbed for the coveted award.

Here are the final shortlists of awards

The Best FIFA Men’s Player

Cristiano Ronaldo – Juventus

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool

Luka Modric – Real Madrid

The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper

Thibaut Courtois – Real Madrid

Hugo Lloris – Tottenham
