The shortlist for goalkeepers and defenders for the FIFPro World XI has been released, and it features Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk.
All 55 players were selected by fellow professional footballers, as 25 000 players from 65 different countries voted for one goalkeeper, four defenders, three midfielders and three forwards.
Football's governing body FIFA alongside, the worldwide players' union FIFPro have revealed a 55-man shortlist for the FIFA FIFPro World XI for 2018.
World Cup winners France are well represented with Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe all on the list.
Forty-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is the oldest nominee on the list.
Up top, Ronaldo and Salah are joined by Messi, Neymar and Harry Kane.
His effect on Liverpool's defence should not be underestimated; he has improved their distribution from the back as well as their defensive solidity, helping the Reds reach the Champions League final.
Mohamed Salah was nominated to the final list after presenting spectacular performance on both club and global level last season with Liverpool and the Egyptian national team.
Former Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is on the list for the 12th consecutive year. He has already won nine World XI awards, including last year's.
However, despite 15 inclusions from the EPL, there are some pretty high profile names to miss out, with Gareth Bale and Sergio Aguero being two of the biggest, in what seems to be a list heavily influenced by performances at the World Cup, with Benjamin Pavard's inclusion a clear example.
