Kylian Mbappé among contenders for FIFA Best Men’s Player award

FIFA Announces Finalists for Player of the Year Award

Haaland, Mbappé, and Messi in the Running for Prestigious Honor

The FIFA has revealed the three contenders for the Player of the Year award. Erling Haaland, Kylian Mbappé, and Lionel Messi are vying for the prestigious trophy. Meanwhile, Linda Caicedo, Aitana Bonmati, and Jennifer Hermoso are the finalists in the women’s category.

Haaland, Mbappé, and Messi being nominated is not surprising. Haaland had a phenomenal debut season with Manchester City, winning the treble. The Norwegian striker became the top scorer and won the Golden Shoe.

Mbappé also had a fruitful year. The French superstar became the top scorer in Ligue 1, won the league title with Paris Saint-Germain, and was named the Player of the Year in France.

The nomination of Messi might be less expected. The Argentine became a world champion in 2022 but then made a move to Inter Miami. So far, he has scored only one goal in six MLS matches. The performances of all the nominees were evaluated from December 19, 2022, to August 2023. The winner will be announced in London on January 15.
