Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the Best FIFA Men's Player award for 2018.

Five-time victor Ronaldo, Golden Ball recipient Luka Modric, fellow France global Raphael Varane and PSG team-mate Neymar all got the nod on his five-man shortlist.

The 19-year-old, who was named the Young Player of the Tournament at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, recently had an exclusive interview with France Football.

Salah, the top scorer in European club football past year, scored 44 goals for the Premier League side Liverpool in all competitions, and picked up player of the seasons honours in England.

Carvajal and Ronaldo were teammates at Real Madrid until the Portuguese superstar completed a stunning transfer to Juventus.

Luka Modric played a pivotal role in that latter triumph before inspiring Croatia to their first-ever World Cup final appearance.

The women's player award will have a new name on it as neither 2017 victor Lieke Martins or 2016 victor Carli Lloyd have made the cut.

"Messi is a player who always has the ball stuck to his feet and he always finds space".

The nominations include Sarina Wiegman, the 2017 victor who coaches the Netherlands, and Asako Takakura, who coached Japan to the Women's Asian Cup title. The captains and head coaches of all national teams account for another 25 per cent each while the final vote comes from a panel of 200 journalists from around the world.

FIFA's annual Best Football Awards gala will hold on September 24 in London, where the victor will be announced.
