The midfielder of Real Madrid and the Croatia national team, Luka Modric, won the Golden Ball award, what is presented by the French magazine France Football, for the first time in his career.

The award ceremony took place in Paris on Monday. Los Blancos’ Modric became the winner of the UCL in 2018, and with the national team reached the final battle of the World Cup in Russia and was recognized as the best performer of the tournament.

The award for the first time in 11 years went neither to Argentine forward Lionel Messi nor Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who, starting since 2008, became the winners five times each.
