Kaka, Messi and Ronaldo the finalists

ZURICH, Switzerland -- Kaka, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the finalists for the FIFA player of the year award.

Brazil forward Kaka is expected to be awarded the Golden Ball as Europe's best player on Sunday. He could equal Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Rivaldo by winning both titles in the same year.

Three-time winner Birgit Prinz of Germany and Cristiane and Marta of Brazil are finalists for the women's prize, FIFA announced Friday. The award will be presented on Dec. 17.

Kaka, Argentina forward Lionel Messi and Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo were selected from a list of 30 candidates in a poll of national team coaches and captains.

With 10 goals, Kaka was the top scorer last season when AC Milan won the Champions League. Messi helped Argentina reach the Copa America final, while Cristiano Ronaldo was Manchester United's top scorer for a team that won its first Premier League title in four years.

Ronaldo would be the first winner from an English club.
