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.
