Who’s on the shortlist?
The 30-man shortlist was announced in late October and included no fewer than eight Premier League players.
Following their maiden Premier League title win, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are in contention for the award.
Vardy is the only Englishman on the list after his 19 Premier League goals helped fire the Foxes to a miraculous title triumph.
The 29-year-old also broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record for the most goals in consecutive Premier League games.
The shortlist contains 13 names from La Liga, five from the Bundesliga, three from Serie and one from Portuguese Super League.
Four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi leads the shortlist along with Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the 2014 award.
