The Croatia midfielder was red hot running far from the two after winning European Best Player, also being voted the FIFA World Best Player. He also won the Golden Ball during the World Cup. This is the Modric’s 4th individual award of the stunning season he had.

Luka Modric had an incredible 2017-18 season, helping Real Madrid to win 3rd consecutive UEFA Champions League, being the frontman and guiding National team to World Cup runners up in Russia 2018.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo came in second-place, with World Cup winners Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe finishing third and fourth respectively. Barcelona captain Messi surprisingly finished in a distant 5th.

Ronaldo and Messi’s fans unite as the Luka Modric won the Ballon d’Or. But isn’t fair.? Just to accept Croatia was the most underrated team and reaching the World Cup finals and leading them from the front Luka Modric deserves some credit for it.

While Lionel Messi didn’t have a good World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo was good in the World Cup scoring hattrick against Spain, scored a winner against Morocco, but both couldn’t pass Round of 16 stages but Modric carried till finals and he was there stand out player.
