FIFA dropped the 55-man shortlist for the World XI earlier this month and Ronaldo made history by becoming the only player to be voted on all 15 of FIFA's shortlists.
Both Ronaldo and Messi are up for the Best FIFA Men's Player award alongside Van Dijk.
The Liverpool defender, 28, beat the two five-time Ballon d'Or winners for the UEFA Men's Player of the Year award last month and is widely tipped to be the favourite for FIFA's award.

UPDATE: Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk ultimately missed out on the Best FIFA Men's Player award to Barcelona captain Lionel Messi.
Liverpool were also the big winners on the night in the FIFA Men's Coach category as Jurgen Klopp beat Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino to the award.
