  • Модрич получил Золотой мяч. Он прервал 10-летнюю гегемонию Месси и Роналду

This is the first time in the last 10 years that neither Ronaldo nor Messi has won the Ballon d'Or. Honoured by one and all, Hegerberg stood on the stage, ready to be greeted by former France worldwide David Ginola and French DJ Martin Solveig.

Mbappe, who will turn 20 later this month, picked up the consolation prize of the Kopa Trophy for the best young player.

"As a kid we have dreams".

"To change position allowed me to develop my game, before I was more an offensive player", said Modric, who won a third consecutive Champions League title with Madrid this year.

Juventus forward and 2017 victor Ronaldo came second, while Atletico Madrid and France striker Antoine Griezmann came third. Brazilian
Neymar, third past year, was 12th despite a
domestic treble with Paris Saint-Germain. The Portuguese ended up as runner-up, while Messi was not even in the top three.

Real Madrid's Luka Modric arrives with his family for the Golden Ball, "Ballon d'Or" award ceremony at the Grand Palais in Paris.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women's Champions League victor with French side Lyon and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.


She's right. The sheer lack of disrespect towards Hegerberg on a day she made history only goes to the show how common it is at other levels and events of women's football. "They are the future".

The Ballon d'Or has been awarded by France Football magazine since 1956 and sees their editorial staff put together the 30-man shortlist. Yes, 19 and already a World Cup victor.

The Ballon d'Or, voted for by journalists, recognises the best players in the world.

Hegerberg answered "no" after Solveig asked her in French to do the provocative dance.

"A disappointment? Well, from where I come, it's no problem", he said.

He added, "Do you know how to twerk?" "This was a joke probably a bad one, I want to apologise to the one I offended, sorry about that".

As far as his role with Real Madrid is concerned, the 25-year-old was an ever present in the Champions League knockout stages.
