Modric, Marta win Best FIFA player 2018 awards

  • Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah

Luka Modric picked up the award for The Best men's player in the world after helping Real Madrid to their third Champions League title in a row and also guiding Croatia to the World Cup final in Russian Federation before eventually falling to France in the decider. "They worked hard to get me here tonight". "First of all I would like to congratulate Mohamed and Cristiano", said Modric on collecting the award.

Modric, who helped Madrid win the Champions League before leading Croatia to the World Cup final, said he wanted the duo at the event.

"It was an unbelievable season, the best season of my life", the 32-year-old said before the event.

Ronaldo, the victor of the award the previous two years, finished second to Modric.

Messi, on the other hand, did give props to Ronaldo by selecting him third but went for the victorious Luka Modric in first place and World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe in second.

The Fifa Fan Award went to Peru's supporters who caused absolute scenes (in a good way) in Russian Federation this summer as the national team made their way to their first World Cup tournament in 36 years.

Ronaldo and Messi have both won the award five times each, but the Portuguese's only rivals to this year's gong are his former Real Madrid team-mate Luka Modric and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

Ronaldo was also heavily tipped for the award after winning his the fifth European title of his career last season, though was not present at the ceremony due to an upcoming midweek fixture with his new club Juventus.

Plenty of football fans around the globe have questioned this year's Puskas as they claimed Salah's wasn't anywhere near the best effort from the season past. Thibaut Courtois won the best goalkeeper award for helping Belgium reach the World Cup semi-finals as well as the FA Cup with Chelsea before a summer move to Madrid.

It is for my Real Madrid team-mates, the Croatia national team and all my coaches.

Among the others honored in London were Peru's travelling supporters, who lit up their first World Cup in 36 years and German player Lennart Thy.
