Champions League draw

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award alongside Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo, it was announced on Monday.

Cristiano Ronaldo is favourite for the award and features on the shortlist having scored the most goals in the Champions League as Real Madrid won the trophy.

World Cup finalist Luka Modric is also rewarded for his fine season with a nomination whilst Liverpool's Mo Salah has made it after his impressive first season in England, although he did end the season trophyless.

He also netted 32 goals in his debut Premier League season, with that tally a record for a 38-game campaign.

UEFA has released the remaining names to have made the top ten, revealing that the Argentine missed out on fourth to Atletico Madrid's French global, Antoine Griezmann.

The remainder is to be paid quarterly over a period of 4-1/2 years, Conoco said in a statement. Conoco's shares were up 1.5 percent at $70.83 in afternoon trading.

VAR is here to stay, and after its successful introduction at the World Cup, UEFA is considering implementing it for the Champions League.

The victor will be named, along with the UEFA Women's Player of the Year, in Monaco on Thursday, August 30, the same day as the draw for the Champions League group stage.

Ramos brought up the rear of the field with 12 points, with Chelsea's Hazard three better off and fellow Real Madrid centre back Varane finishing up with 28 points. Each selecting their top three players, their rankings were determined using a scoring system of five points for first pick, three points for second and one for third.

The nominees for the women's award are France's Amandine Henry and Norway's Ada Hegerberg, who both won the Champions League with Lyon, and Denmark's Pernille Harder, who lost in the final with Wolfsburg.
