Modric Wins FIFA Player Of The Year While Salah Misses Out On World XI

Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric has won the Men's Best Player Award.

The Croatia captain enjoyed a stunning World Cup in Russia earlier this year and was awarded the accolade at a Gala event in London tonight. FIFA President Gianni Infantino presented Modric with the award.

Modric can add the prize to the UEFA Men's Player of the Year award he won earlier this year after beating off competition from Ronaldo and Salah.

Elsewhere, Brazilian and Orlando Pride star Marta collected the best FIFA Women's Player award after leading Brazil to the Copa America last April.
