Ramos and Florentino to join Modric for Ballon d'Or

Ramos and Florentino to join Modric for Ballon d'Or

While Ronaldo won another Champions League with Real Madrid in a typically prolific year, and Messi continues to mesmerise for Barcelona, both are now in their 30s and neither really stamped their authority on the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Cristiano Ronaldo? Who should win the 2018 Ballon d'Or?

The World Cup in Russian Federation this summer has proved a strong influence as well as Modric's success with Real Madrid.

Here, FOX Sports Asia predicts the top 5 finishers in the 2018 Ballon d'Or race. On the pitch, Ronaldo played a decisive role in guiding Real Madrid to yet another Champions League trophy.

Griezmann also won the Europa League with Atletico Madrid, scoring 2 of his side's 3 goals in the final.

The Kopa Award, for best young player, is reportedly heading to Kylian Mbappe, for his efforts in firing France to a second World Cup triumph and impressive season with title winners Paris Saint-Germain.

Here's what PGA Tour Vice President of Rules and Competitions Mark Russell said when speaking with media about the incident. Starting in 2019, the rule will change, with no penalty assessed but the second stroke added to the scorecard.

Lionel Messi's goal against PSV Eindhoven helped the Barcelona star surpass Cristiano Ronaldo to reclaim a Champions League record and the Portugal star will have a long way to go to win it back.

However, the Frenchman has not been the most consistent, with explosive performances coming in fits and starts.

The balance began to swing his way after the World Cup, winning a variety of individual awards, such as UEFA's best player in Europe in August and FIFA's The Best in October.

Multiple leaked reports have claimed Modric is set to walk away with the award, and that may well be true.

Despite popular opinion claiming Luka Modric doesn't deserve to even be in the top three for the award, the Croat is all set to take home the 2018 Ballon d'Or.
