Two Liverpool Players In Contention As The Best FIFA Football Award Nominees For 2021 Are Announced

Liverpool forward Mo Salah has been nominated for The Best FIFA Men’s Player award, along with ten other stars.

The Egyptian international is going up against Chelsea pair Jorginho & N’Golo Kante, Paris Saint-Germain trio Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland for the prize.
