Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and Portuguese attacker Cristiano Ronaldo, who were selected among the top 11 previous year, have appeared on every wider list of 55 players since the 2004/2005 season, or since FIFPro began the competition.

England's World Cup stars Harry Kane, Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker have been included on FIFPro's 55-man shortlist for the 2018 World XI.

According to ESPN, the FIFA FIFPro World 11 2018, as selected by thousands of professional players, was announced on Monday.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were the only two African nominees.

Steven Gerrard was named in all three of these years, with striker Fernando Torres named in both 2008 and 2009. Messi's club-mate Philippe Coutinho - who left Liverpool in January to join Barcelona for £146m - is also included.

One of the most eye-catching awards, the Best FIFA Men's Player has witnessed Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah into the final three contenders. Their impressive performances means the Spanish La Liga is usually dominant.

Others are Yerry Mina (Colombia/Everton FC/FC Barcelona), Benjamin Pavard (France/VfB Stuttgart), Gerard Pique (Spain/FC Barcelona), Sergio Ramos (Spain/Real Madrid CF), Thiago Silva (Brazil/Paris Saint-Germain), Kieran Trippier (England/Tottenham Hotspur), Samuel Umtiti (France/FC Barcelona), Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands/Liverpool FC), Raphael Varane (France/Real Madrid CF), Sime Vrsaljko (Croatia/Internazionale/Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (England/Manchester City FC).
