Modric won his third Champions League title in a row in May and guided Croatia to their first World Cup final in July.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has won the Puskas Award for best goal at the annual FIFA Best Awards held in London on Monday night.

Salah hinted that he was surprised that he has won the Puskas Award.

FIFA FIFPro World XI: De Gea, Marcelo, Varane, Ramos, Dani Alves, Modric, Kante, Ronaldo, Hazard, Messi and Mbappe.

His sublime goal against Everton that saw him dribble the entire Toffees team got the nod ahead of the over head kicks from Ronaldo and Bale.

The Croatia captain enjoyed a stunning World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this year and was awarded the accolade at a Gala event in London tonight.

PIRG, a federation of public interest groups, said the release of waste from lagoons could spread antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Others can't get to their neighborhoods because the extensive road closures or simply because they don't have a ride home.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has missed out on a place in the side.

The Liverpool forward produced a moment of brilliance to light up his first Merseyside derby appearance, spinning away from his marker in the area before curling a shot into the far top corner.

At 33, Croatia's run to the final was the culmination of a brilliant career for Modric that had often been overshadowed by Ronaldo's goalscoring in their time together in the Spanish capital, before the Portuguese left for Juventus in July.

"I also want to thank my idol, member of the Croatia 1998 team Zvonimir Boban who gave us inspiration that we could great things in Russia", Modrić said before saying a few words in Spanish and in Croatian.

Former Chelsea man Thibaut Courtois was awarded the best goalkeeper award, after his Golden Glove-winning World Cup tournament with Belgium.

Pele sent his good wishes, tweeting: "Congratulations to Luka and Marta on winning the #TheBest awards tonight".
