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

The 33-year-old Modric - who was also named FIFA's Best Men's Player this year - helped Croatia to the World Cup final in Russian Federation having guided Madrid to a third successive Champions League crown.

Five years ago, the Dinamo Zagreb youth product was voted as the worst signing of the season in La Liga after a slow start to life in the Spanish capital.

"My dream as a kid was to play for a big club and win trophies and this is a dream", Modrić said after collecting the award.

"2018 is a dream year for me", Modric said.

In addition, the Los Blancos midfielder has also ensured that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's 10-year hold of the award, was finally brought to an end on Monday night.

Kylian Mbappe missed out on a place in the top three but was given the inaugural Kopa Trophy for the world's best male player aged under 21. Brazilian
Neymar, third previous year, was 12th despite a
domestic treble with Paris Saint-Germain.

Croatian playmaker Luka Modric was declared the victor for the 2018 Ballon d'Or award on Monday, December 3, in Paris.

With 219 goals in 215 games so far in her career, Hegerberg is a sensation in women's football.

The 23-year-old won the Ballon d'Or Feminin in fine style and was joined on stage by a number of her team-mates including England star Lucy Bronze, as she made an inspirational and powerful speech asking for "every young woman to believe in themselves". Now plying her trade at Lyon, she is a three-time Women's Champions League victor.

"But, like I told you, I would change all of this for a World Cup".

I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan.

Hegerberg played down the incident.

But the France Football-organised Ballon d'Or is still considered the top individual honour in world football, with Modric delighted to be recognised as the finest player on the planet in 2018. "I do not know".
