The Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is favoured to win the 2017 Ballon d'Or award for the world's best footballer.
The 30-man shortlist has been announced with the Portugese player favourite to retain the trophy to equal the record of his great rival and five-times winner Lionel Messi of Barcelona.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been named, while Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard is among six other Premier League players picked by France Football magazine for the prestigious prize.
David de Gea, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane, Kevin de Bruyne and N'Golo Kante, have also been chosen.
Gareth Bale misses out.
Kane has been picked on the shortlist for the first time after scoring 43 goals in 37 games for club and country in 2017.
Messi has claimed the prize on five occasions, while no player other than the Argentine or his Portuguese rival has won since Brazil midfielder Kaka in 2007.
The Ballon d'Or, which merged with the FIFA World Player of the Year award from 2010-15 to create the FIFA Ballon d'Or, returned to France Football magazine this year having been established in 1956.
A panel of journalists pick the winner.
