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.

Modric who guided Croatia to the world cup final for the first time, becomes the first Croatian player to win the award.

Hardcore Liverpool supporters argued that Salah ought to have been named the best player but Modric took that prize home after three consecutive Champions League triumphs and a journey to the World Cup final with Croatia.

Portugal global Ronaldo, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in the close season, was second in this year's awards with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in third place. Though a female has yet to win the award, Irish professional Stephanie Roche was shortlisted to the top three in 2014.

Modric's success means Ronaldo remains tied with Messi having won FIFA's award in different guises five times each. "I would like to thank the whole team".

The Belgium keeper also completed a UEFA and Federation Internationale de Football Association double having been awarded the Golden Glove for his performances at the World Cup.

She later went on to represent him and was instrumental in his mega-money move to Real Madrid in 2012.

Best Women's coach: Reynald Pedros, coach of Lyonnais Féminin - who won the French league and the Women's Champions League last season - picks up the award.

Modric defeated the duo of Mohammad Salah of Liverpool and Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo to emerge the victor.

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.

Belgian Thibaut Courtois, a recent Real Madrid transfer from Chelsea, won the best goalkeeper award.

The award victor will emerge from a vigorous process which had a voting process involving fans, national team coaches and captains and journalists from across the globe.
