KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Luka Modric has won the 2018 Ballon d'Or ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezman, with Lionel Messi coming fifth.

Croatia's run to the World Cup final earned Modric the Russian Federation 2018 Golden Ball and he was also given FIFA's The Best Men's Player award earlier in the year. The 25-year-old, who came 10th overall, received 25 votes in total, with Kenya picking the England captain 2nd, Uzbekistan and Togo 3rd, Mongolia and Bosnia Herzegovina 4th, then Croatia, Kingdom of Lesotho, Mauritania, Malta, and Sri Lanka backed him in 5th. "My dream was to play for a big club and win important trophies", said Modric, above.

Modric claimed the coveted individual honour at a ceremony in Paris on Monday - ending the domination of Juventus superstar Ronaldo and Barcelona sensation Messi, who had split the past 10 awards.

France Football has awarded the prestigious prize to the best male player every year since 1956, adding a women's award this year. Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe finished fourth to round out the top five.

It appears that not many people are happy about Luka Modric's win of the 2018 Ballon d'Or.

French disc jockey Martin Solveig appeared to embarrass Hegerberg when he asked her if she would "twerk" after she collected the trophy.

The root of it is the fact that of all the nominees put forward by France Football, the publication presiding over the Ballon d'Or, Varane is the only one who has won both the World Cup and the Champions League this year.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with French side Lyon and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.

Chelsea boss Sarri insists Morata has his trust
The 18-year-old impressed in pre-season and Sarri handed him a start against PAOK at Stamford Bridge last night. He has been straightforward with me and I need to be ready for when the opportunity comes. "He deserves it.

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

Under the current format, the list of nominees is drawn up by weekly magazine France Football, with journalists from around the world voting on the final victor. The suggestion clearly made Hegerberg uncomfortable.

"A lot of things need to be done to make the conditions better for women who play football", she said. "I do not know".
