European Championship winners Millie Bright, Lucy Bronze and Beth Mead are among the nominees for the Ballon d’Or Feminin.

Mead was the top scorer and named Player of the Tournament when England triumphed on home soil last month.

Chelsea’s Sam Kerr and Vivianne Miedema of Arsenal are also shortlisted, along with Barcelona star Alexia Putellas, while the head of the men’s nominations was the absence of seven-time winner Lionel Messi.

Messi won the award in 2021 and 2019 – it was not held in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic – but after his move to Paris St Germain, the Argentine has been left out.
