Croatia,Luka Modric,perjury charges

Real Madrid's Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was named victor of the 2018 Ballon d'Or on Monday, December 3, breaking Cristiano Ronaldo's and Lionel Messi's decade-long hold on the prestigious award.

The Croatian captain's father, Stipe choked back tears in a moving tribute as his son broke a ten year duopoly held by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, to be crowned as the world's best player.

Modric, 33, won his third successive Champions League in May before helping Croatia to a first World Cup final. My dream was to play for a big club, to win important trophies.

"I won the Europa League, I won the Super Cup and the World Cup so it's a great year".

He also won the best Federation Internationale de Football Association men's player earlier this year, beating competition from Ronaldo and Egypt's Mo Salah. Kylian Mbappe, France's teenage star, was fourth and also collected the Kopa award for the best under-21 player. "Throughout my career I realised hard work, persistence and belief in yourself in difficult moments are the foundations of success".

Ronaldo, who joined Real Madrid from Juventus in the summer, came second. Kaka, in 2007, was the victor that preceded them.

Among all the awards the victor of the women's Ballon d'Or was also announced, and Ada Hegerberg took the accolade after her performances for Lyon and Norway saw the former clinch the Champions League title.

World Cup winners N'Golo Kante (11) and Paul Pogba (15) finished in the top 20 after being recognised for their performances in Russian Federation.

The last player to lift the award apart from the Argentine and Portuguese, who have won it a joint-record five times each, was Kaka in 2007 when the Brazilian played for AC Milan. "I want to end this speech with a message to all young girls in the world". I don't think the respect has been there.

Speaking in an interview shortly before collecting her Ballon d'Or, Hegerberg told The Associated Press on Monday she has no plans to reconsider her decision taken to preserve her "authenticity and my values, as a person, as a footballer".

Hegerberg has said she will not play for Norway at the Women's World Cup in France next June.
