Even Cr7 done get the 411 and he's skipping the gala, Fifa wan maintain Cr7/Messi duopoly as on-par GOATs, so their fans can rest the case and allow other footballers take their long over due rise to super stardom rank. These two have denied some grt players like Zlatan,Tevez,Totti,Hazard,Yaya Toure, Iniesta, Xavi, Samuel Eto,Drogba, and lots of em this pretigous award with their ingenuity at club and national level making these above mention players looks so ordinary. ..
Modric for the Price

Na Sneijder own pain me pass.

Is that so?

Well, Modric had only 1 assist in the UCL and Ronaldo had 3.
Ronaldo created 11 chances, Modric created just 7 in UCL.
So who is really the team creative spark here?



if ur analysis is correct y was LM given d award

La liga 2017/18
Modric 2 assists , 27 key passes
Ronaldo 5 assists , 24 key passes

World Cup 2018

Modric 2 goals and 1 assist
Ronaldo 4 goals and 0 assists

UCL 2017/18

Modric 1 goal and 1 assists 7 key passes
Ronaldo 15 goals and 3 assists 11 key passes



How many tackles did CR7 get? That is part of the problem with today's football awards. I so much dislike the fact that someone will be awarded based on the number of goals he scored.

The job of some of these Midfielders are not easy to do. They are the engine room of most teams. There is no way a team will score goals without a top class midfielder.

Going by the stats you put up there, players like Kaka, Zidane, Ronaldinho would not have won the award.

We want real football back.

If it's about tackles, then we should be handing the award to people like Casemiro.

But interestingly, Ronaldo won more interceptions for Madrid than Modric.

With just 2 goals and 1 assist. Only one man of the match performance, and lucky to get to the final because team was on the easy side of the draw. Modric was by no means the best player in the FIFA world cup.
He wasn't even the best player for Croatia in the world cup. Rakitic, Perisic and Brozovic had better impressive stats and games in the world cup for Croatia.

Ronaldiho, Zidane and Kaka deliver regular man of the match performances, through their dribbling skills and chances created for their team. Ronaldo created more goal scoring chances for Madrid last season than Modric, a supposedly world class midfielder, let that sink in. Yet peeps want us to believe Ronaldo is only a goal scorer and not a creator, they insist we must ignore the stats, how ridiculous.

How did they pick this man over Penaldo?
How is he going to fill CR7s shoes with those tiny boots he wears?

Dani Alves did nothing all year = FIFPro XI, Salah is part of the top 3 FIFA men's Player but not in the FIFPro XI, Salah's goal is better than Bale, Pavard, and Ronaldo's

FIFAFootballAwards should have bn aired on cartoon network. Confused set of people

The thing tire me o. Just filled with confusion.

Messi is not on the top 3 which has 2 strikers and one midfielder yet Messi is on the FIFAPro XI while Salah misses out. Shouldn't the top two strikes be on the FIFAPro XI?

Funny, including Salah in the last 3 was already an error cos I don't really know what the guy did and won better than Mbappe, Griezman and Lionel Messi. A guy that went trophiless and was still selected. Hahahaha

Ronaldo won nothing in 2013 and was selected. Infact, he won it.

You may be right cos statistically Modric won't even be among Top 100 players in the world but on the field of play he is a joy and magician...so they judged by his performance and not statistics...aside that nobody works harder run around make tackles or influence matches on the pitch than Modric...this is really modric's year


They didn't adjudge anything. It was simply by votes. You talk as if no one voted for Ronaldo.

Modric is the Best Player at the Worldcup, he also took his team to the final. (where ur penaldo will never play in his life)
Penaldo is a "food is read boy".

Ronaldo was highest goal scorer in UCL and ended the season with 55goals. He was already a force to reckoned with , same with Messi. Salah a one season wonder with Liverpool fc. No cup at all at all. Even in a world cup year his country left with 1 points or so. Mbappe and Griezman won the world cup and with other cups at club level. Lionel Messi was Europe highest goal scorer and won Spanish double with his club. And u still feel none of them deserve to be in top 3 ahead of Mo Salah. Some still expect him to win it ahead of Luka Modric and Ronaldo who won UCL and performed better at Russia. It is well

Modric was not even the best player for Croatia in the world cup.

Persic had 3 goals and 1 assist

Modric had 2 goals and 1.assist

Even Rakitic was more impressive in that Croatia midfield and recorded more ratings in most Croatia matches than Modric.

Zidane, Ronaldinho, Kaka Al scored decent amounts of goals and created tons of goal scoring chances for their team mates.
Modric does not in anyway fit into this mould. He is just not spectacular. That's the point. No scintillating dribbles, no jaw dropping diagonal passes (Lampard and Gerrard excelled at this), Kroos and Casemiro has more tackles than him, Ronaldo made more interceptions than him.
