Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Harry Kane were named the attackers in FIFA 18's Team of the Year, the popular video game announced Monday.
Based on their real-life performances throughout 2017, a list of 55 nominees is being whittled down to a full XI based on votes from athletes, media and members of EA Sports FIFA community.
EA Sports sent a ballot box to eligible voters, who are picking their team in a 4-3-3 formation and submitted their choices by sharing a picture of the selection on social media with the hashtag #TOTYVote.
The attackers were the first to be named in a FIFA Ultimate Team pack, while other positions will be released all week until the weekend, when the full team will be available in packs.
Instead, it was Kane who earned a spot among the world's best two players, after the Tottenham man set the Premier League record for goals in a calendar year in 2017 with 39.
The midfielders will be announced on Wednesday, while goalkeepers and defenders will be released on Friday. All players will be available in packs on Saturday and Sunday.
