Mohamed Salah shortlisted in 30-man roster for the Ballon d’Or

The 30-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or award is being revealed today

And Coral have made him 2-5 to scoop this prize too, which commences in Paris on the 3 December.

Paul Pogba might have struggled to replicate his World Cup form with Manchester United, but the French midfielder's performances in Russian Federation mean he has also made the shortlist.

Bale's club-mate Luka Modric, who is yet to be named as a candidate, is among the early favourites after Real's European success against the Reds and leading Croatia to the World Cup final.

The Juventus forward, now facing allegations of rape dating back to 2009 that he strenuously denies, has already won the Ballon d'Or five times and is the current holder of the award.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are once again nominated for Ballon d'Or award.

The latest candidates, who are being revealed in alphabetical order, include Thibaut Courtois, 2017 victor Cristiano Ronaldo, Kevin De Bruyne, Roberto Firmino and Diego Godin.

And even though it's up to the governments to reach the IPCC's emission goals, we can all be more conscious about our own waste. Global Warming of 1.5 °C is the first in a series of Special Reports to be produced in the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Cycle.

Antoine Griezmann, a World Cup victor with France and Europa League champion at Atletico Madrid, is nominated alongside worldwide teammate and Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante.

Brazil's Marta, crowned best women's player for a record sixth time at last month's Federation Internationale de Football Association awards, is also in contention after her role in winning the Copa America.

Particularly in a World Cup year, it feels as though such awards - like the honours list, never to be taken too seriously - should provide a snapshot of a time (otherwise, voting for world's best footballer, we would just give it to Messi every season).

Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson, Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and Paris St-Germain attacker Edinson Cavani are also contenders.

The Ballon d'Or has been awarded by France Football every year since 1956, with former England worldwide Sir Stanley Matthews the first victor.

Liverpool's Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been shortlisted for the 2018 Ballon d'Or.
