Messi, Mbappe, Haaland finalists for FIFA Best Men’s Player award

LIONEL Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland are the three finalists for the FIFA 2023 Best Men’s Player award, world soccer’s governing body said.

Norwegian Haaland helped Manchester City win three major trophies, the Champions League, English Premier League and FA Cup last season.

Messi secured the award in 2022 after guiding Argentina to a World Cup victory. Following that success, he clinched the Ligue 1 title with Paris St Germain alongside Mbappe before moving to the Major League Soccer team Inter Miami.

The women’s best player shortlist includes two 2023 World Cup champions, Aitana Bonmati and Jennifer Hermoso from Spain, alongside Linda Caicedo, who represents Colombia.

The winners will be announced on January 15 in London, England.
