Modric Ronaldo and Salah final UEFA Player of the Year nominees

However, the Argentine was overlooked as UEFA on Monday reeled out their final three nominees for UEFA Player of The Year award for the 2017/18 season.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah make the final three-man list for the men's award, with Wolfsburg's Pernille Harder and Lyon duo Ada Hegerberg and Amandine Henry are up for the women's award.

Modric was key in the conquest of the third Real Madrid Champions League and a cornerstone in Croatia, which reached the 2018 world final, leading to his nomination for the award.

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn't as exciting as the Note 8 , it's still a very, very refined and capable flagship smartphone. Despite being a productivity-focused smartphone, Samsung appears to be gearing the Note9 as an ultimate gaming device.

Similar to the aforementioned Ronaldo, the 32-year-old midfielder also made in excess of 40 appearances last season as Real Madrid went on to lift the UEFA Champions League trophy.

The victor of the prestigious award will be named - along with the UEFA Women's Player of the Year and UEFA Champions League positional award winners - during the group stage draw in Monaco on Thursday 30 August. Modric, who has been winning hearts at Bernabeu with his top-notch performances also stands tall as the runner-up at FIFA World Cup and the best player of the megaevent as well. The tournament in Russian Federation could prove to be Croatia's current golden generation last major global appearance, and Zlatko Dalić's side shocked fans across the globe by reaching the final.

Kylian Mbappe, Kevin De Bruyne, Raphael Varane, Eden Hazard and Sergio Ramos complete the top 10.

It will be pertinent to mention here that Salah spread the magic at UEFA Champions League this year with carrying Liverpool into the finals but getting off the field due to injury in finals.
