FIFPro World XI Named at Prestigious FIFA Best Awards Ceremony in London

Ronaldo, Messi to miss FIFA The Best awards

Modric's win breaks the Lionel Messi-Ronaldo duopoly of the last 10 years and it follows his player of the tournament prize at Russian Federation 2018 and UEFA player of the year accolade last month.

LONDON: Luka Modric ended Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi´s decade-long domination of football´s individual awards by being crowned FIFA´s best player of the year on Monday.

For the first time in 12 years Messi is not even nominated among the three finalists for the award after early exits for Argentina at the World Cup and Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Stay with us for all the updates. For all my teammates in the Croatia national team.

He was snubbed for the Best Men's Player accolade, but is in the running for the Puskas Award for goal of the year for his strike against Nigeria in the World Cup in Russian Federation - an award Ronaldo is also up for through his stunning overhead-kick for Real against Juventus in the Champions League.

Though Hegerberg and Marozsan narrowly missed out, their coach Reynald Pedros picked up the Best FIFA Women's Coach award after steering Lyon to the French league and Champions League last season.

"This trophy is also for my family without who I would not be the player and person that I am", he said.

"I would like to mention my footballing idol and captain of Croatia in 1998 [Zvonimir Boban], in the first participation and a bronze in France".

It's Marta's first player of the year award since 2010, with the Brazilian star lighting up the pitch in the NWSL for the Orlando Pride.

She later went on to represent him and was instrumental in his mega-money move to Real Madrid in 2012. He was my big inspiration and that team gave us belief that we could achieve something great in Russian Federation, and hopefully we can be the same for next generations.

Modric was joined by Sergio Ramos, Ronaldo and Marcelo.

Voting is now closed and whilst other awards have last minute changes, it is not the case for The Best, where an external company verifies results to ensure that there is no undue influences.

She led Brazil to the Copa America in April, as they won all seven matches - although she only scored one of their 31 goals.

German forward Lennart Thy won the fair play award after missing a game for Dutchside VVV-Venlo to help a leukemia patient.

Chelsea_MKM: The man who does his talking on the pitch. "I don't have my phone with me now so maybe he has [sent a message]".
