FIFA The Best Men's Player Of The Year Top 10 And Scores

FIFA The Best Men's Player Of The Year Top 10 And Scores

Lionel Messi beat Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to take FIFA's The Best Men's Player of the Year award but who else managed to make the top 10?

The top three was always pretty much nailed on, although whether or not they're in the right order is still being argued now, but behind the podium places it was much closer.

FIFA's results show Messi eight points clear of Van Dijk but the Liverpool defender finished just two clear of Ronaldo. There's a 10 point jump to fourth place Mo Salah who is followed by fellow Reds' teammate Sadio Mane.

Harry Kane - 5 points

Liverpool were the most successful team in this year's voting with three in the top five, and no other side had three in the top 10, although neither Salah or Mane made it into the Fifpro Team of the Year.

Kylian Mbappe made it into the top 10 despite PSG's continued failure to make a big impact in the Champions League and France's failure in the Nations League.

Ajax's impressive Champions League campaign earned Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt huge summer moves and their places in the top 10, Eden Hazard's Europa League win and Harry Kane's Champions League runners up medal helped them into the list too,

Seven of the top 10 made it into the Team of the Year but there was more controversy about the players not in the voting who made the team.

Marcelo, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric's inclusion all caused big questions.
