The final 10 will be whittled down to three finalists, and the victor will be announced at The Best FIFA Football Awards show in London on 24 September.

Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah are two of ten nominees for the 2018 FIFA Best Men's Player award, also known as the Ballon d'Or.

Mbappe was joined by compatriot Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane on the 10-man shortlist.

Ronaldo is the two-time victor of the accolade, which is a revival of the FIFA World Player of the Year award.

The 19-year-old is considered to be a future victor of the most prestigious individual award in football, with it possible that 2018 could be the year in which he gets his hands on the prize.

France could sweep the main awards with Didier Deschamps and Zinedine Zidane heading 11 candidates for the best men's coach.

The Best FIFA Women's Coach: Emma Hayes (England/Chelsea Women); Stephan Lerch (Germany/VfL Wolfsburg); Mark Parsons (England/Portland Thorns); Reynald Pedros (France/Olympique Lyonnais); Alen Stajcic (Australia/Australian national team); Asako Takakura (Japan/Japanese national team); Vadao (Brazil/Brazilian national team); Jorge Vilda (Spain/Spanish national team); Martina Voss-Tecklenburg (Germany/Swiss national team); Sarina Wiegman (The Netherlands/Dutch national team).
