Modric beats Ronaldo to FIFA The Best award

Cristiano Ronaldo skips the awards ceremony in London on Monday as his former Real Madrid teammate Luka Modric beat him for the award

Modric becomes the first Croatian player to win the award after an outstanding year for club and country.

On Monday night at Fifa's "The Best" awards ceremony, Salah's goal against Everton was voted the best of the year and below you can see the strike from all angles.

Three World Cup winners were included in the FIFA FIFPRO World XI, but there was no place for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

He was instrumental in winning Real Madrid's third Champions League title in as many seasons, while he captained Croatia to their first World Cup final, winning the Golden Ball at the tournament.

France's World Cup-winning boss Didier Deschamps was named men's coach of the year.

"It was an unbelievable season, the best season in my life", said Modric.

Real Madrid shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois has just picked up the FIFA Goalkeeper of the Year award. Ronaldo also scored a memorable hat-trick in the FIFA World Cup but did not progress beyond the round of 16.

The victor of the FIFA Award is picked after the votes are split between national coaches of FIFA Member Associations, their team captains, a select group of media from those countries, and fans.

Liverpool supporters were stunned as Mohamed Salah came away with the Puskas prize at the Best FIFA Football Awards 2018.

In the women's category, Lyon duo Ada Hegerberg and Dzsenifer Marozsan will fight with Orlando Pride's Marta for the crown, whilst the coaching award will be for Lyon's Reynald Pedros, Japan's Asako Takakura or the Netherlands' Sarina Weigman.
