Lionel Messi has been snubbed in the three-man shortlist for UEFA player of the year.
Messi, himself a two-time victor finished fifth in the long-list behind fourth place Antoine Griezmann who won the World Cup with France in the summer but was outscored in both La Liga and the Champions League last season by Messi.
The awards will be presented at the Champions League group stage draw ceremony, in Monaco on August 30.
The award typically rewards Champions League performances - with all three on the shortlist having played in the final in May - but voters can take the World Cup into account. The coaches were not allowed to vote for players from their own team.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Celebrate at Their Engagement Party
The engagement party - called a roka - is a chance for the couple to exchange gifts and makes the union of their families public. Anusha Dandekar , who is a close friend to Priyanka, said the couple makes "love look so easy, lovely and special".
At the World Cup in Russia, Griezmann won the Bronze Ball as the third-best player at the tournament, selected by a Federation Internationale de Football Association expert panel, plus the Silver Boot for second place in the scoring table. He also won the Champions League title with Los Blancos.
Similar to the aforementioned Ronaldo, the 32-year-old midfielder also made in excess of 40 appearances last season as Real Madrid went on to lift the UEFA Champions League trophy. Ronaldo's assist record was far worst though, with just fife in La Liga and three in the Champions League, although the Portuguese forward would often lead the attack for Madrid.
The top three recipients of votes for the 2017-18 UEFA Men's Player of the Year award should surprise exactly no one.
He is joined by Atletico teammate Diego Godin and Dimitri Payet of Marseille.
The nominees for the women's award are France's Amandine Henry and Norway's Ada Hegerberg, who both won the Champions League with Lyon, and Denmark's Pernille Harder, who lost in the final with Wolfsburg.
