Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin de Bruyne are among the 11 players that have been shortlisted for the Best FIFA Men’s Player of the year award.

Also Chelsea duo Jorginho and N’Golo Kante complete the Premier League contingent on the list for the accolade, which will be awarded on January 17 next year.

Salah has been in superb form for Liverpool this season, scoring 16 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions.

He has set a new club record by scoring in nine consecutive games and was hailed as the best player in the world by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp last month.

Ronaldo meanwhile has almost single-handedly kept Manchester United in the Champions League with a string of late goals.

The Portuguese also became the most prolific goalscorer of all time in international football earlier this season.

Man City’s De Bruyne was rewarded for his fantastic performances last term, which saw the Belgian win a third Premier League title and a fifth League Cup as well as being named PFA Players’ Player of The Year for the second consecutive season.

Jorginho and Kante, meanwhile, were essential in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph, with the former playing a similarly integral role in Italy’s Euro 2020 success over the summer.

Six-time Ballon d’Or Lionel Messi has also been shortlisted, along with his Paris Saint-Germain teammates Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Last year’s winner Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund talisman Erling Haaland and Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema complete the 11-man list.

The Premier League is also well represented in two other categories, with Alisson, Kasper Schmeichel and Edouard Mendy included in the five-man shortlist for the Best FIFA Goalkeeper award along with Germany’s Manuel Neuer and Italy’s Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Pep Guardiola, Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte have been shortlisted for the Best FIFA Coach accolade along with Italy’s manager Roberto Mancini, who led the Azzurri to win Euro 2020.

Former Bayern Munich manager and current Germany boss Hans Fickl is also among the nominees, as is Lionel Scaloni, who won the Copa America with Argentina, and Diego Simeone, who won LaLiga with Atletico Madrid last season.

Meanwhile for the women, 7 WSL players make up the 13-woman shortlist for Best FIFA Women’s Player.

Arsenal striker Vivianne Mediema is among the nominees, along with Manchester City duo Ellen White and Lucy Bronze and Chelsea quartet Magdalena Eriksson, Pernille Harder, Ji Soyun and Sam Kerr.

The Ghana Oil Company (GOIL) has reduced fuel by 15 pesewas after a directive from President Akufo-Addo following a meeting with driver unions on Monday, December 6.

The reduction took effect Tuesday morning with a litre of fuel at Goil now selling at 6 cedis 70 pesewas. The reduction came after a crunch meeting with driver unions who declared a sit-down strike Monday over fuel prices.

It is, however, not known how long the reduction will be in effect.

Some commercial drivers in parts of Accra Monday morning began a sit-down strike in protest against numerous levies and taxes imposed on petroleum products by the government, resulting in an increase in fuel prices.

At Gbawe and Mallam in the Weija-Gbawe Municipality, there were many commuters stranded along the shoulders of the road while those who had already boarded commercial vehicles were forced to disembark.

Some GPRTU station officers blocked roads with car tyres and other metallic weapons to prevent the passage of loaded commercial vehicles.

The situation resulted in hot verbal exchanges and a near fisticuff between the station officers and the passengers.

The strike was later suspended after the President called for a meeting with leaders of driver unions to find an amicable solution to the strike.
