The Best Fifa Football Awards are back for 2020, where seven prizes will be handed out to the best players and coaches from the men’s and women’s games.

Last year’s winner Lionel Messi is up against against his old rival Cristiano Ronaldo and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski for the men’s prize, while Manchester City and England’s Lucy Bronze is going for the women’s award. Also in the running are Chelsea’s Pernille Harder and Bronze’s former Lyon teammate Wendie Renard.

Two Premier League managers are vying for the men’s best coach, with Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Leeds United’s Marcelo Bielsa both shortlisted for the prize alongside Bayern manager Hansi Flick, who steered the German champions to the Bundesliga, the German Cup and the Champions League.

The scorer of the best goal of the year will win the Puskas award, and Tottenham’s Son Heung-min – fresh from scoring against Liverpool at Anfield last night – is in the running following his remarkable dribble and finish against Burnley last season. There will also be awards for the best goalkeeper, which Liverpool’s Alisson Becker could win after a stellar year in between the posts for the English champions.
