World football governing body, FIFA and France Football, have announced Barcelona’s duo of Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s as the final three nominees for the 2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or.

Messi, who is the current holder of the award, has already scored 82 times this year, just three shy of Gerd Muller’s record of goals scored for both club and country in a calender year.

Iniesta won both the Copa del Rey and European Championships.

The three finalists in the Coach of the Year for men’s football award are Vicente del Bosque, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.

Radamel Falcao, Neymar and Miroslav Stoch are the remaining contenders for the Puskas award for goal of the season.

Marta, Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan are in contention for the Women’s Player of the Year award.

Bruno Bini, Norio Sasaki and Pia Sundhage are the candidates for the Coach of the Year for women’s football award.
