Virgil Van Dijk has been shortlisted for yet another individual accolade as he joins Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in vying for the FIFA men's Player of the Year award.
Van Dijk, who beat both Barcelona Messi and Juve's Ronaldo to win the UEFA Player of the Year award last week, is again the favourite to beat the two other footballing superstars to this latest award.

Barcelona's Marc-Andre Ter Stegen is the third name on the list.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who led the Reds to Champions League glory, was shortlisted in the men's coach category along with Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, whose side were beaten in the Madrid final.
