       Who should win the Best FIFA award- Luka Modric or Cristiano Ronaldo

As Spain captain, Ramos had a vote for the award and went with Modric as his choice, followed by their ex team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi third.

Dani Alves completes the line-up, despite the Paris Saint-Germain right-back starting just 23 Ligue 1 games last season and missing the World Cup through injury.

Luka Modric has been named FIFA's men's player of the year after beating off stiff competition from Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah. Without my family I would not be the player I am today. It is for my Real Madrid team-mates, the Croatia national team and all my coaches.

O'Neill selected Ronaldo in second with Liverpool's Mo Salah in third. "Hopefully we can be the same for next generations".

Croatian coach Zlatko Dalic is also up for the award, in recognition for his efforts in guiding his country to their first ever World Cup final in Russian Federation this summer. "So many people have come together and so many have supported me", said Modric.

Lyon boss Reynald Pedros did win the award for best women´s coach, though, after winning the Champions League with the French giants. He has adjudged the best player at the tournament in Russian Federation.

'You have to be a gentleman when you win, but also when you lose, ' said the former Croatian star.

Thibaut Courtois added the Federation Internationale de Football Association goalkeeper award to the Golden Glove he collected in Russia for helping Belgium to third place with three clean sheets.

Ronaldo didn't travel to the ceremony, which was held at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Top honors for men and women players and coaches were decided by a process that assigned four equal weights to the votes of fans, media, national team coaches and national team captains.

Germany manager Joachim Low, speaking to BBC Sport before the awards were announced: "All the players who are nominated are very, very good".

The Brazilian, who led her country to the Copa America title in April, beat Olympique Lyonnais pair Ada Hegerberg of Norway and Dzsenifer Marozsan of Germany to the award.
