Bernardo Silva, Alisson Becker and Raheem Sterling missed out on the nomination list as FIFA released the names of the 10 nominees for the The Best male player award on Wednesday.
Here are the 10 players who were nominated for the award: Cristiano Ronaldo, Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, Sadio Mane, Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.
Twitter was not impressed as Silva, Alisson and Sterling were not nominated and pointed out how Silva and Alisson, especially deserved to be in that list instead of Harry Kane.
Silva won the Premier League with Manchester City for the second season in a row and was a key member of the side. He also played a key role in City's League Cup and FA Cup victories. With his country, Silva played a crucial role in Portugal's UEFA Nations League win.
Alisson, on the other hand, won the Golden Glove in all three of Premier League, Champions League and Copa America to become the first goalkeeper to win the award in each of the three major competitions he participated in.
Sterling like Silva played a major role in City's domestic treble.
Harry Kane, on the other hand, had an injury-filled season and missed 17 games in the 2018/19 season and was even blamed for Tottenham Hotspur's Champions League final loss.
Twitter was in no mood to spare FIFA for missing out the three key players and called them a "disgrace". People listed out the achievement of Silva and Alisson as they expressed their shock over the situation.

Harry Kane was injured for 91 days in 2018/19, missing 17 games, and did not win any trophy, but made Fifa’s #TheBest shortlist ahead of Bernardo Silva, who won the domestic treble with Man City and was named Player of the UEFA Nations League. ♂♀https://t.co/rveDIkN4IT pic.twitter.com/2gQiNNhGoT— David Kappel (@kappilinho) July 31, 2019
