Ronaldo, Mbappe and Messi shortlisted for FIFA FIFPro Team of the Year


Al Nasr forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been named in the shortlist of 23 players for the FIFPro Team of the Year.

Ronaldo was selected even though he no longer plays in Europe. However, the 38-year-old finished 2023 as world football's top scorer with 54 goals for club and country.

Nine members of Manchester City's Treble-winning team will also be in attendance.

Erling Haaland led City's stars with 52 goals in 53 appearances last season.

The others include Ederson, Ruben Dias, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva.

Ilkay Gundogan, who moved to Barcelona in the summer, was also on the shortlist after winning all three trophies as Man City's club captain.

Walker and Stones were joined in the England squad by Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane.

Lionel Messi, who has been named to the FIFPro Team of the Year 16 times, has the potential to improve his record even further.
