The list of men and women to be crowned as the FIFA World Players for 2008 have been cut down to five. But who do you think will be the lucky winners?

Kaka, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres and Xavi are in the running for the men's award, while Nadine Angerer, Cristiane, Marta, Birgit Prinz and Kelly Smith could claim the women's crown.

But who do you think will emerge triumphant? Can you predict who the captains and coaches from FIFA's 208 member associations will select?

And don't be frightened to give your opinion. Did Cristiano Ronaldo do better than Messi in 2008? Is Xavi a better central midfielder than Kaka - or should Torres be crowned above them all?

As for the women, will Prinz or Kelly win it for the strikers, could the award be going back to Brazil or will German No1 Angerer be revealed as being the No1 women's player in the world?

All will be revealed on Monday 12 January in Zurich, but have your say now! Click on 'Add your comment' below to give us your thoughts, remembering to keep your comments clean, respectful, on-topic and in English.
