The Portuguese striker is one of the final three nominees for the Globe Soccer Awards' best player prize, which will be handed out on 3 January.

"The 10th anniversary of the Globe Soccer Awards is a special milestone," Globe Soccer's chief executive officer Tommaso Bendoni said, as quoted by Marca.

"We are delighted to present Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann as the finalists in the best player category."

Ronaldo, who has lifted the award four times, including in the past two years, has been nominated for the eighth time, while Messi, who won the award in 2015, has not made the final three. 

In addition, Jurgen Klopp, Massimiliano Allegri, Didier Deschamps, Zinedine Zidane and Diego Simeone have been nominated for the Globe Soccer Coach of the Year award.
