And then there were three.

Major League Soccer announced on Wednesday the finalists of the year-end awards, including Volkswagen MVP, which is down to the Montreal Impact's Marco Di Vaio, the LA Galaxy's Robbie Keane, and the Chicago Fire's Mike Magee.

The finalists were determined by the polling of three voting groups: players, clubs (coaches, technical directors, etc.), and media.
