Just a few hours away from the upcoming FIFA The Best Awards shortlist, we give you our own Top 5 list of the possible nominees.

Before the new season starts rolling, there is still FIFA’s The Best Award shortlist to find out and we have a Top 5 list of possible nominees.

While the initial number of players who will be part of the first round will consist of 10 names, we decided to only talk about the five players who will most likely get a nomination.

We can’t forget that last year was the very first time that neither Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi won the prize, which is the first time in history since its creation back in 2017.

Luka Modric was the player who won the prize and we will know about the new names making this shortlist later on Wednesday.

We’ll tell you which players will certainly make it to the last round, and we’ll talk about them in order from least likely to most likely to win it.
