Since The Best award was created in 2016, the winner has gone on to also lift the coveted Ballon d'Or, which will be unveiled on December 2. Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric won both awards last year to end Ronaldo and Messi's ten-year domination. In the past three years the podiums for both awards have been almost identical apart from Egyptian Mohamed Salah's third place in The Best in 2018, a spot occupied by France's Antoine Griezmann in the Ballon d'Or.
Among the women, American World Cup winners Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan, are in the running along with England's Lucy Bronze. Rapinoe, 34, left France with a Golden Boot and Golden Ball award.
The three contenders for the men's coaching award are Liverpool's Champions League winning coach Jurgen Klopp, along with Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, who reached the European final, and Manchester City's Pep Guardiola.
US women's coach Jill Ellis is in the running for the women's coaching award along with England's Phil Neville and Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman.
The nominees for the best goalkeeper male are Liverpool's Alisson Becker, Manchester City's Ederson and Barcelona's Marc-Andre Ter Stegen. For the women's category, the nominees are Chile's Christiane Endler, Sweden's Hedvig Lindahl and Sari van Veenendaal of the Netherlands.
