Liverpool trio of Egypt's Salah, US World Cup winners head FIFA award shortlists
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 01 - 08 - 2019

Liverpool's Champions League winning trio of Egyptian football player Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane joined regulars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the shortlist for The Best FIFA Men's player award, world soccer's governing body said on Wednesday.
Salah and Mane shared the Premier League Golden Boot, with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, for the league's top scorer with 22 goals each while Messi was the leading scorer in both La Liga (36 goals) and the Champions League (12 goals) last season.
Centre back Van Dijk was voted both the Premier League Player of the Season and the Players' Player of the Year, and was instrumental in the Merseyside club's sixth European Cup triumph.
Ronaldo won Italy's Serie A title in his debut season with Juventus and was also voted the league's most valuable player. He also led Portugal to the inaugural UEFA Nations League title last month.
U.S. World Cup winners Megan Rapinoe, who won the top scorer's Golden Boot and Golden Ball for the best player at the tournament, Alex Morgan and Julie Ertz were nominated for the best women's player award along with last year's Ballon d'Or winner Ada Hegerberg.
Hegerberg's treble-winning Olympique Lyonnais team mates Lucy Bronze, Amandine Henry and Wendie Renard also made the cut.
Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp and domestic treble winner Pep Guardiola of Manchester City head the nominees for the men's coach of the year award.
Other nominees include Portugal coach Fernando Santos, Brazil coach Tite, who led his side to the Copa America title, and Africa Cup of Nations winner Djamel Belmadi of Algeria.
U.S. women's national team coach Jill Ellis, who led her side to their fourth World Cup title earlier this month, heads the list of nominees for the best women's team coach.
She is joined by Lyon's treble-winning coach Reynald Pedros, Sarina Wiegman, who led the Netherlands to their first ever World Cup final, and Joe Montemurro who led Arsenal to the FA Women's Super League title.
The three finalists for each award will be revealed at a later date, with the winners to be announced in a ceremony in Milan on Sept. 23.
