Barcelona duo Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Lionel Messi have both been nominated for FIFA The Best Awards it was revealed on Monday.

The German goalkeeper is up for Best Goalkeeper. He joins Liverpool’s Alisson and Manchester City’s Ederson on the three-man shortlist.

Messi is, unsurprisingly, up for a couple of gongs. He has been nominated for the Puskas Award for best goal - for his brilliant chip against Real Betis. Juan Fernando Quintero and Daniel Zsori are the other two players in contention to lift the trophy.

The Barcelona captain is also one of three players in the running for Best Men’s Player. In news that will surprise absolutely no-one, the other two contenders are Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The winners will be announced in a ceremony in Milan on September 23. Who gets your vote?
