Luka Modric Wins Ballon D'or 2018 - Ends Ronaldo & Messi Dominance

It was indeed surprising not to see the like of Lionel Messi on the three man shortlist of Ballon D'or and what is even more surprising to most football reuters and pundits is the man who just won the acculade for the first time ever. 

For me, I'm not really surprised because the accolade went to the most fairrest, consistent and sharpest player the world have ever known, Luka Modric.

The Croatian captain and Real Madrid play maker wins Ballon d'Or 2018 to end Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's 10-year dominance.

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, behind PSG star Kylianm 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.
