Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo's Votes For Best Men's Player Award

Luka Modric named best male player at Best Fifa Football Awards

Luka Modric named best male player at Best Fifa Football Awards

Luka Modric and Didier Deschamps were awarded the leading honours for The Best FIFA Men's Player and Men's Coach respectively, after their outstanding years and notable contributions at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™.

Deschamps, who became just the third man to win the World Cup as a player and coach, beat off competition from Dalic and his former France team-mate Zinedine Zidane, who won a third consecutive Champions League title with Real Madrid before resigning in June.

The Puskas Award is Fifa's way of recognising the most attractive goal scored in the past year and Salah's gorgeous effort against Everton last December was voted the best.

There was a great deal of confusion when Salah received the Puskas Award for his effort against Everton.

Fabio Capello says Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's absence at FIFA's The Best awards showed a lack of respect from the pair. "I have to thank everyone who voted for me".

Marta won her sixth Federation Internationale de Football Association player of the year award, and her first since 2010, after leading Brazil to Copa America Femenina glory.

Many believed the striker should not have even been nominated for the prestigious award, such was the goals mundanity compared to the others.

Mourinho to ration Dalot appearances for Manchester United
Wolves, however, have won their last two Premier League games and are out to make it three in a row in the top-flight for the first time since March 1980.

Earlier in the evening, Mohamed Salah's strike in last season's Merseyside derby against Everton at Anfield won the FIFA Puskas Award for the goal of the season. It is my teammates from Real Madrid and Croatia.

The impending absence of Ronaldo from Monday's gala has further fueled speculation that the 2018 ward is for Modric.

Modric went on to thank his family, fans who voted for him, and Zvonimir Boban, the captain of the Croatian 1998 World Cup team that achieved a third-place finish in France, calling him his "footballing idol".

She led Brazil to the Copa America in April, as they won all seven matches. Olympique Lyonnais women's team manager Reynald Pedros won best women's coach.

The best goalkeeper award will be fought for between Thibaut Courtois, Kasper Schmeichel and Hugo Lloris.

The players had their say, and so did the fans, who voted for the Puskás and FIFA Fan Awards, with Mo Salah the ultimate victor of the Puskás Award thanks to his outstanding goal against Everton.

But then came the World Cup, where Ronaldo and Modric had contrasting experiences.
