Croatian midfielder Luka Modric and Brazilian
striker Marta Viera Da silva were named as best male and female players at the Best fifa football awards which took place in London.
Luka Modric has had a triumphant year taking Croatia to the Fifa world cup final in Russia where they suffered a 4-2 Loss in the hands of France and winning the champions league against liverpool with Real Madrid in a 3-1 win in Ukraine.
Marta has won the award for the sixth time now as her first came in 2006 and has been part of the United states team of the year as she and her team Orlando Pride reached the play off-semi finals. In April this year she led Brazil to winning Copa america having won all of their games.
This year wasn’t the victory of either messi or ronaldo in the football worlds lips but perhaps i change has occured in the era of who is the best.
Does putting the ball through the net determine the dominance of who is the best player in the world or does it have to be what happens with the ball at your feet?
