Salah listed with Ronaldo, Modric for Fifa men’s best player

Egypt international and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the 2018 FIFA best player award, football world governing body announced on Monday.

He was shortlisted along with Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal / Juventus) and Luka Modric (Croatia / Real Madrid).

The Egyptian is just the third African player to be chosen among the top three for Fifa’s main award for players.

Liberia’s George Weah won in 1995 and was the runner-up a year later while Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o was third in 2005 – when the award was known as the Fifa World Player of the Year.

Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, missed out on a place in the top three.

There was also no place for any member of France’s World Cup winning squad
