Luka Modric wins Ballon d'Or 2018 to end Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's 10-year duopoly



 The Real Madrid midfielder won the ultimate award, outshining his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who now plays for Juventus.

 Ronaldo ranks second, followed by Antoine Griezmann who led France to World Cup trophy. Another 5-time winner Lionel Messi sits only at 5th,  Lionel Messi has failed to make the top three of the Ballon d'Or for the first time since 2007, finishing fifth in this years final vote behind PSG star Kylian Mbappe. Modric has made a perfect performance in the past year.

 He led Real Madrid to win the 3rd straight Champions League Championship and guided Croatia to the final in 2018 World Cup.

 The Croatian being crowned the FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year has significantly changed the football landscape, becoming the first non-Messi or Ronaldo player since Kaka in 2007 to lift such an award. Besides, Modric was chosen in FIFA/FIFPro World XI, and won FIFA Golden Ball and UEFA Best Player.
