Modric, Ronaldo and Salah battle it out for FIFA’s ‘The Best’ award

Croatia and Real Madrid star Luka Modric returns to London on Monday with the best chance of being named FIFA’s player of the year anyone other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo has had for a decade.

 


That decision will be the climax of the Best FIFA Football Awards show at the Royal Festival Hall, with the 90-minute ceremony being broadcast online from 7.30pm.

 

The former Tottenham midfielder’s hopes of breaking the 10-year Messi/Ronaldo duopoly are based on two pillars: one, Messi has not made the shortlist for the first time since 2007; and two, Modric was the player of the tournament at this summer’s World Cup and won UEFA’s player of the year last month.

 

Ronaldo, however, has been nominated for another player of the year prize, with Liverpool and Egypt hero Mohamed Salah completing the line-up.
