Griezmann: What Else Do I Have To Do To Win Ballon d'Or?

Ballon d'Or: Luka Modric breaks decade of Ronaldo and Messi dominance Luka Modrić wins the 2018 Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has put a stop to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's stranglehold over the Ballon d'Or by clinching the highly-coveted award for 2018.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah - who became the Premier League's all-time goalscorer for a 38 game season - was also in serious contention after his goalscoring form helped the Reds reach the Champions League final, as was Spurs striker Harry Kane, who won the Golden Boot at the World Cup. With the youngster looking to get better with each passing minute, the Paris-Saint-Germain forward has class players around him at both worldwide and club level to assist him in his journey.

"As a kid we have dreams". "The Ballon d'Or was more than a dream for me and it is an honour and a privilege to hold this trophy".

His candidacy as football's top player of 2018 hasn't gone down too well with some fans of the lovely game, particularly those who would claim to be fans of Ronaldo and Messi - the two most dominant players since the award's inception in 1956.

Kylian Mbappe missed out on a place in the top three but was given the inaugural Kopa Trophy for the world's best male player aged under 21.

"God takes his time but he doesn't fail", she wrote with an image of Ronaldo holding one of the five Ballon d'Or awards he has won in his illustrous career.

The win was slightly overshadowed when the host DJ Martin Solveig asked Hegerberg to twerk on stage in celebration.

"My son, I am the happiest and proudest father in the world", he said. Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with the French side and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.

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.

France Football, which hands out the Ballon d'Or, and FIFA combined their awards to create the FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2010.

"I'm a little amazed and astonished with what I'm reading on the internet, of course I didn't want to offend anyone", he said. Little did she know that her biggest day was about to be marred by an inappropriate comment.

"A lot of things need to be done to make the conditions better for women who play football", she commented. The suggestion clearly made Hegerberg uncomfortable. "It's all about how we respect women's football". You can fulfill yourself by seeking attention and applaud from others.
