The Best finalists: 2 days to go

There are just two days left until we reveal the final nominees for a host of The Best FIFA Football Awards™, with players and coaches across the globe awaiting news of the finalists.

Voting by four of football's key stakeholders, will see those initial shortlists for the main individual awards (men's and women's player and coach) trimmed from 56 candidates to just 12. Meanwhile, the final trios for the FIFA Fan Award and the inaugural The Best Men's Goalkeeper will be unveiled on Friday, as will the ten-goal shortlist for the FIFA Puskás Award - with voting then open to the public for the Fan Award and the Puskás Award.

2 This will be the second edition of The Best FIFA Football Awards, after the first edition took place in Zurich. This means it will be the second time that fans have been put in the spotlight, with the FIFA Fan Award in its second iteration, and the fans having their say for the second time for the four main individual awards (The Best men's and women's player and coach), as part of an equal split with national team coaches and captains and select members of the media.

All nominees will be revealed across FIFA’s social media platforms, so make sure you’re following @FIFAcom, tracking the hashtags #TheBest and #Puskas, with the latest pictures and news also available on The Best FIFA Football Awards Facebook page and our Instagram account.
