Modric, Marta win Best FIFA player 2018 awards

Real Madrid’s Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was named Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year for 2018. Modric won the Champions League with Real and then played a major role in Croatia’s run to the World Cup final where they were beaten by France. It is the first time since Brazilian Kaka’s triumph in 2007 that the men’s prize was not won by either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi neither of whom attended the ceremony held at London’s Royal Festival Hall. 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.

Orlando Pride’s Brazil forward Marta won the women’s award at a ceremony. The 32-year-old Marta, who plays in the National Women’s Soccer League in the United States, had won the previous FIFA Women’s Player of the Year award five times.
