Luka Modric walked away with the top prize, however we take a look at where 'France Football' ranked the other 29 best players in the world.

1) Luka Modric

Modrić won the Champions League with Real Madrid for the fourth time in his career, was the best player for Croatia as he captained them to the World Cup final for the first time ever, won UEFA's Midfielder of the Season, the World Cup Golden Ball and The Best FIFA Men's Player award - very well deserved winner. 

2) Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid won the Champions League with the the Portuguese finishing as the top scorer of the tournament with 15 goals, however he has not won a sixth Ballon d'Or award. 

Ronaldo played a decisive part in getting the better of other top guns from Europe, including a spectacular overhead kick in Turin against his current employers.

3) Antoine Griezmann

Griezmann won the World Cup with France, finishing as the man of the match in the final and he also finish as the Europa League's best player with a brace in the final of that too.

4) Kylian Mbappe

The 19-year-old has already won the Kopa Award this evening and you can't win everything. If he continues to progress at the rate that he is, he may very well see himself win this award in the next couple of years. What a player!
