Brady was the hero of Ireland’s Euro 2016 campaign and is the favourite to receive the accolade at the annual awards ceremony in Dublin on Sunday evening.

He is joined on the shortlist by Burnley team-mate Hendrick and captain Coleman after the pair played integral parts in Ireland’s progression to the last 16 in France and in the first four games of the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Brady and Hendrick are also nominated for the Young International Player of the Year award alongside Brighton defender Shane Duffy.

The Dubliner’s famous goal against Italy at last summer’s European Championships is among three memorable strikes vying for the International Goal of the Year award with Wes Hoolahan’s effort against Sweden and James McClean’s winner in Austria also in contention.

In the Senior Women’s International Player of the Year category, Karen Duggan, Aine O’Gorman and Stephanie Roche are nominated while Harry Charlsey, Josh Cullen and senior international Callum O’Dowda are up for the U21 gong.

Dundalk will receive a Special Merit Award on the night in recognition of their achievements both domestically and in Europe last season while Andy Boyle, Daryl Horgan and Cork’s Sean Maguire are in the running for SSE Airtricity League Player of the Year.
