Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo have been named on the shortlist for the 2018 Ballon d'Or.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is among the early nominees for the Men's Ballon d'Or award as France Football release their list of 30 at staggered intervals throughout the day.

The 25-year-old was part of France's World Cup winning team, scoring a goal in the final against Croatia.

Firmino is nominated despite Liverpool failing to win a trophy last term and Brazil reaching only the World Cup quarter-finals, while Godin gets the nod following Atletico Madrid's victories in the Europa League and UEFA Super Cup.

Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, two key members of the France national team that sailed to their second-ever World Cup trophy are also likely to finish with high tallies, as are Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne, members of Belgium's star-studded side that came third at Russian Federation 2018.
