The world's best male and female footballers will be named at the Best Fifa Football Awards in London on Monday.



Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah are the finalists for the men's player award for 2018 - with no place for Lionel Messi. Ada Hegerberg, Dzsenifer Marozsan and Marta are the nominees for the women's player award.

Gareth Bale is one of 10 candidates for the Fifa Puskas goal of the year. The other awards are for the Best Fifa goalkeeper, men's coach, women's coach, fan award, fair play award and Fifpro World XI. British actor Idris Elba and French journalist Anne-Laure Bonnet host the show at the Royal Festival Hall, which starts at 18:30 GMT This is the third year of the Best Fifa awards after the world governing body's six-year association with the Ballon d'Or came to an end.

This is the first year since 2006 that Lionel Messi has not been in the final three of Fifa's top award - then called the Fifa World Player of the Year.

It will also be the first time since 2010 that Ronaldo and Messi have not been the top two in either order. The final three was named on 3 September - with the winners of the men's and women's player and coach awards being decided by 25% from national team coaches, 25% from national team captains, 25% from select media representatives and 25% online vote.
