Modric and Hegerberg named world’s best footballers

December 5, 2018

Luka Modric and Ada Hegerberg have been named the world’s best football players.

Real Madrid’s Croatia midfielder Modric beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the male world player of the year award.

This year was the first time an award had been given to a female football player and which Ada Hegerberg won.

Modric helped Real Madrid win a third successive Champions League title in May and also captained Croatia to their first World Cup final, being named player of the tournament despite his side losing 4-2 to France.

Hegerberg is a three-time Women’s Champions League winner with Olympic Lyonnais and scored a tournament-record 15 times last season.

The Ballon d’Or was first awarded in 1956.
