UEFA awards: Lionel Messi, Christiana Ronaldo and Van Dijk All shortlisted

The Likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil van Dijk have been named as possible candidates for this year's UEFA Men's Player of the Year award.
This award will be awarded to one of the trio during the draw for the Champions League group stage in Monaco on August 29, after they were shortlisted by a team of jury of coaches and journalists.
Also, England's Lucy Bronze, Ballon d'Or winner Ada Hegerberg and France's Amandine Henry have been shortlisted for the women's award.
Suprisingly "Van Dijk" has joined Messi and Ronaldo, the two iconic players of their generation, on the shortlist after starring in defence for Liverpool as they won a sixth Champions League and came close to winning their first domestic league title in 29 years.
Lionel Messi won the first edition of the award in 2011 while Ronaldo has won it on three occasions, in 2014, 2016 and 2017.
Currently, "Luka Modric" is the best European men's champion after winning the Champions League and taking Croatia to the World Cup final in 2018, while Wolfsburg's Danish striker Pernille Harder bagged the women's prize.
