Besides The Best, Messi also has the opportunity to win the second title when shortlisted in the list of the best goal of the year, the Puskas Award. His lob against Betis in La Liga will compete with Juanfer Quintero's free-kick from River Plate - Racing Club and Daniel Zsori's finish in the Debrecen - Ferencvaros.

In the best men's football tournament, the three shortlisted candidates are all from English football, including Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino. Klopp really stands out thanks to his achievements in winning the Champions League. In addition, experts also appreciate the achievement that helped Tottenham reach Pochettino's final and put Man City to Guardiola's domestic treble.

In the best goalkeeper, representatives of Man City and Liverpool also confront each other: Ederson and Alisson Becker. The remaining candidate is Ter Stegen (Barca).

The best female player of the year will witness the competition of two American stars, Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan. At the last World Cup, these two female players scored six goals, won the same top scorer and helped the US team successfully defend the championship. The remaining candidate is Lucy Bronze, the defender won the UEFA Best Female Player award last week.

In the best women's football tournament, US coach Jill Ellis will compete with England coach, Phil Neville and Dutch coach, Sarina Wiegman. At the women's soccer World Cup, the Netherlands reached the final, while England also participated in the semi-finals.

This year FIFA will award the best female soccer goalkeeper for the first time. Three candidates shortlisted: Sari van Veenendaal (Netherlands), Christiane Endler (France) and Hedvig Lindahl (Sweden).

In the tournament for the fans, Silvia Grecco of Brazil, Justo Sanchez of Uruguay and the Dutch women's football team at the World Cup will compete.
