The shortlist for the UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award has been released, with Robert Lewandowski the favourite to claim the honour.
Lewandowski is favourite to claim the gong, as he would have been for the Ballon d'Or had that award not been cancelled due to the current pandemic.
Although Manchester City went out at the quarter-final stage, up until that point Kevin De Bruyne was sublime for his side, adding to his already stellar performances in the Premier Leaugue.
Messi and Ronaldo have won the award more than any other players, with the Argentine winning it twice and the Portuguese on three occasions.
Last year's winner was Virgil van Dijk after helping to lead Liverpool to the Champions League in 2019.
Jurgen Klopp, Hansi Flick and Julian Nagelsmann are in contention for the Men's Coach of the Year.
For the women's award, the nominees are Lucy Bronze, Pernille Harder and Wendie Renard.
