However, although Messi's goal for Argentina against Nigeria at the World Cup is in contention for the FIFA Puskas Award and he could feature in the FIFPro World 11, he, like Ronaldo, is not expected to attend the ceremony.

Saudi Arabia legend and former Wolves loanee, Sami Al-Jaber, South Korea's Cha Bum-kun, Brazil World Cup victor Carlos Alberto Parreira, Germany legend Lothar Matthaus, New Zealand's Wynton Rufer and Nigeria's Emmanuel Amunike make up the panel.

It will be a panel of journalists specialising in women's football around the world who will vote on the victor, using the same system that is in place for the men's game.

With no Cristiano in London, the bets are on Luka Modric having won the Champions League with Real Madrid and reached the World Cup final with Croatia, only to be beaten despite his spectacular performance. Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is also in the race.

But neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Lionel Messi will be in attendance.

As does Salah, who is one of the three finalists after an astonishing, Messi/Ronaldo-esque debut season at Liverpool that saw him net a 44 goals in all competitions as the Reds made the final of the Champions League.

Modrić is expected to win the award after playing a huge part in taking Real Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League and Croatia to a World Cup final.

The event in London will also see the Best FIFA Women's Player named, with Norway's Ada Hegerberg, Germany's Dzsenifer Marozsan and Brazil's Marta in contention to claim the prize won by Lieke Martens in 2017.

There are also men's and women's coaches of the year prizes, with France coach Didier Deschamps sure to win the former, while Thibaut Courtois, Hugo Lloris and Kasper Schmeichel are nominated for the top goalkeeper award.

The event starts at 6:30 PM. Mundo Deportivo in Spain are reporting that MESSI will miss out on the ceremony due to family reasons.
