Voting for the awards is now open, with the categories narrowed down to three finalists before the winners are announced in Milan on September 23rd.

The public can vote for their preferences via FIFA's website. Croatia and Real Madrid's Luka Modric won in 2018.

Virgil van Dijk is the early favourite for the honour, following his PFA Player of the Year award and Liverpool's continental success.
