Luka Modric becomes first Croatian to win prestigious Ballon d'Or

Luka Modric won the Ballon d'Or for the first time last night, ending the ten-year dominance of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It was the first time since 2007 that Messi was voted outside of the top three for the award.

Modric, 33, ended the decade hegemony of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the coveted individual honour awarded by France Football on Monday.

Messi is credited with 45 goals and 23 assists in 50 matches in 2018.

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 worldwide appearances this calendar year. I can't find words.

Modric, crowned the Best FIFA Men's Player 2018, testified past year at the trial of a tax official and three former senior officials from Dinamo Zagreb, including its former chief executive Zdravko Mamic.

Speaking after picking up the award, Modric said: "It is a unique feeling".

However, for all of Mbappe's scintillating play in Russian Federation, it is Real Madrid star Modric who has broken more than a decade of Messi-Ronaldo dominance.

Modric's recognition was reward for a fine 12 months during which he helped his club to lift the Champions League for the third successive season in May before playing a key role in Croatia's surge to the World Cup final. France's teen star, Kylian Mbappe, was fourth.

Then Kaka was the 2007 victor, before joining Los Blancos from AC Milan in the summer of 2009, the same year that 2008 victor Ronaldo arrived from Manchester United.

Grenada also went for Manchester City striker Aguero but as their Ballon d'Or victor, not picking a single member of the French World Cup winning squad in the process.

Mario Mandžukić, who retired from worldwide football after the World Cup, was ranked 25th.

"People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women". "It's a huge step for women's football", Hegerberg said. I want to thank my teammates and coaches at Real Madrid and those with the national team.

"I didn't really consider it as sexual harassment or anything in the moment".
