Liverpool pair Salah, Alisson make Champions League awards shortlist

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has made the shortlist for the best forward award in last season's Champions League.

The Egypt international scored 11 goals to help Jurgen Klopp's side reach the final in Kiev, where he was forced off injured as they lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.

He is up for the award alongside Cristiano Ronaldo - who left Madrid for Juventus earlier in the summer - and Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

New Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker could also be named as the Champions League's best goalkeeper for his performances at former club Roma.

But the Brazilian will need to see off Madrid's Keylor Navas and Gianluigi Buffon - who played for Juventus but is now at Paris St Germain.
