Luka Modric 'honoured' after winning men's 2018 Ballon d'Or

Ballon d'Or: Luka Modric breaks decade of Ronaldo and Messi dominance

Luka Modrić wins the 2018 Ballon d'Or

Salah is placed behind Luka Modric (1st), Cristiano Ronaldo (2nd), Antoine Griezmann (3rd), Kylian Mbappe (4th) and Lionel Messi (5th).

Modric helped Los Blancos claim a third straight Champions League title in a 3-1 victory over Liverpool in May that saw Modric win 100 per cent of his tackles without committing a foul and post a 94-per-cent accuracy rate with his passing.

Ronaldo's older sister Kate also got involved posting a picture of Ronaldo with the caption: "Best player in the world....for those who understand football of course".

"As a kid we have dreams".

"He said I was a very important player for him". "The Ballon d'Or was more than just a dream for me and it is really an honour and a privilege to hold this trophy".

The annual football award, presented by France Football, has been dominated by Messi and Ronaldo for the past decade, with each clinching the accolade five times apiece since 2008. Brazilian
Neymar, third a year ago, was 12th despite a
domestic treble with Paris Saint-Germain. Hegerberg refused and quickly left the stage. Modric had never previously been in the top three.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with Olympic Lyonnais and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.

Times Square's official website even offers help for people who want to go big with a proposal on one of its famous billboards. It was a wedding proposal in Central Park that started out like a romantic film - and turned into a comedy.

Fans of both Ronaldo and Messi were furious that their idols didn't finish higher in the rankings and Ronaldo's sisters even went on to slam the award and the voting process. He wanted me to open myself more.

The Ballon d'Or, voted for by journalists, recognises the best players in the world. "I want to end this speech with a message to all young girls in the world".

'It's hard to find the words to express how I feel, ' Modric said.

Accompanied by a video apologising further to Hegerberg, Solveig wrote on Twitter: "Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended".

Kerr also helped Australia reach the AFC Women's Asian Cup final, which the Matildas lost to Japan in April, and has scored eight goals in 19 global appearances this calendar year.

Taking a stand against what she describes as a lack of respect for female players in Norway, she hasn't played for the national team since it crashed out of the group stage of the Women's European Championship in 2017 without scoring a goal.

"People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women".
