FIFA's The Best: FIFA to announce the three finalists for The Best

Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo have been named as the finalists for the FIFA Best Men's Player award in 2017. It was once celebrated in conjunction with the Balon d'Or until their split Federation Internationale de Football Association and the award's split a year ago.

Brazil superstar Neymar, 25, won the Copa del Rey with Barcelona last season before joining Paris Saint-Germain in a blockbuster 222 million euros ($266 million) move that smashed the world transfer record.

Ronaldo, 32, is the overwhelming favourite to win the award, having led Real Madrid to the La Liga title and a third Champions League success in four years last season.

Ronaldo previously won the Fifa World Player of the Year award in 2008 and is a four-time victor of the Ballon d'Or.

The trio had been named in an initial 24-man list of nominees last month and will now battle it out for the prize when it is handed out at the Best FIFA Football Awards ceremony on October 23 in London.

The victor of the 2017 award will be announced during a ceremony at the London Palladium on October 23. The award, which covers the period of November 20, 2016, to July 2, 2017, is voted for by national team coaches, captains, selected media and fans.
