Frenchmen are finalists at the awards in what has been a stellar year for French football. After leading Les Bleus to global glory at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, Didier Deschamps is nominated for The Best FIFA Men’s Coach alongside compatriot Zinedine Zidane, who claimed a staggering third successive UEFA Champions League crown. Hugo Lloris’s heroics in goal see him in the running for The Best FIFA Goalkeeper, while international team-mate Benjamin Pavard’s perfect pearler against Argentina at Russia 2018 is among ten stunners nominated for the FIFA Puskás Award. Reynald Pedros, meanwhile, led Lyon to an impressive league and UEFA Women’s Champions League double, while also seeing the French outfit unbeaten in the Division 1 Feminine – feats that saw him nominated for The Best FIFA Women’s Coach award.
