FIFA's best player of the year-Luka Modric


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.

 Modric scored twice and also netted in penalty shootout wins over Denmark and Russia, but it was his playmaking ability that caught the eye in winning the Golden Ball for the best player at the World Cup.
The Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder starred for both club and country as Madrid won a third straight Champions League, and he inspired Croatia to reach the World Cup final for the first time.
At 1.72 meters (5-foot-8), Modric was doubted early in his career because of his height.

Modric beat out Liverpool's Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah and Ronaldo, who along with Messi did not attend the glitzy awards ceremony in London.
"The emotion is huge because it is thanks to the work of everyone. So many people have come together and so many have supported me," said Modric.

Brazil’s Marta won the women's award for a sixth time.
