Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, and Bayern duo Manuel Neuer and Arjen Robben are the three finalists nominated for the Best Player in Europe award for the 2013/14 season, following votes from UEFA's 54 federation members. The prize will be handed out on 28 August in Monaco.
The Liga BBVA player has been nominated for the fourth year in a row. Cristiano did great things last season, breaking the Champions League goals record with 17 strikes in the 2013/14 edition of the tournament.
Four other Liga BBVA players were in the top 10 complied by UEFA: Leo Messi and new teammate Luis Suárez from FC Barcelona, whilst Ángel Di and James Rodríguez from Real Madrid. Yet more proof of the strength of Spanish football on a global scale.
