This Thursday (17) morning, FIFA revealed the list with the 24 candidates for the FIFA The Best prize and Neymar Jr. is one of the selected athletes. This will be the second edition of FIFA’s prize that elects the three best players in the world.
The award analyzes players throughout the season. For this edition, the period of evaluation took place from November 20 (2016) until July (2017). Among the 24 disputing players, Neymar Jr. shows up in the list for the second time, competing to be one of the finalists of the award. Besides him, Marcelo, of the Real Madrid team, is the second Brazilian to appear in the selection.
The process of choice will go through a poll between coaches, captains and journalists. The open poll for the public will begin next Monday (21), through FIFA’s official website. The poll will end in September seven and, in the same month, the three finalists of the award will be announced.
