Paris:

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Franck Ribery will contest the title of Best Player in Europe when journalists across the continent cast their vote on August 29 in Monaco, UEFA said on Tuesday.

The three emerged on the shortlist after a second preliminary vote whittled down an interim 10-strong list.

UEFA president Michel Platini began the initiative two years ago in partnership with the European Sports Media (ESM) group with Messi and his Barcelona teammate Andres Iniesta winning the first two editions.
