Modric beats Salah, Ronaldo to Best FIFA Men's Player 2018

The Best Fifa Awards 2018 What time does it start is it on TV and will Luka Modric beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Mo Salah

Meanwhile, Coratia and Real Madrid superstar, Luka Modric beat former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah to win this year's Federation Internationale de Football Association best player award.

The 49-year-old was up against Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic, whose side lost to France in the final in Russian Federation this summer, and Zinedine Zidane, who led Real Madrid to a third straight Champions League win.

Ronaldo scored 15 goals in the Champions League last season and after Real Madrid's success over Liverpool in the final, it seemed inevitable that The Best award was headed his way.

Plenty of football fans around the globe have questioned this year's Puskas as they claimed Salah's wasn't anywhere near the best effort from the season past.

But he was overlooked for Salah's strike against Everton in the Merseyside derby, with many football pundits believing it wasn't even the Egyptian's best goal of last season.

Modrić was also named in the Fifa Fifpro World XI.

He polled 38 percent of the entire votes to win the prestigious prize after his curling left-footed shot ended high inside the far corner of Jordan Pickford's net.

"At this particular moment, I would like to mention my footballing idol and captain of Croatia generation 1998 and their first participation (at the World Cup finals as Croatia) and bronze in France", Modric said.

Modric defeated the duo of Mohammad Salah of Liverpool and Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo to emerge the victor.

'I have to thank everyone who voted for me.

Debate is guaranteed, particularly after Ronaldo's unannounced absence in Monaco for UEFA's award ceremony - when he discovered that he was not the player of the year.

Here's how Liverpool fans reacted to Salah coming away with the prize...

Deschamps said: "I want to thank the president of the French Federation who trusted me and helped me work serenely".

France boss Didier Deschamps picked up the best manager award after guiding his nation to their second World Cup victory.

Former Tottenham and Hull midfielder Ryan Mason wrote: 'The Puskas Award has lost a lot of credibility for me tonight!

Elsewhere, Belgium stopper Thibaut Courtois won the Best FIFA goalkeeper award.
