Croatia captain Luka Modrić was named Best FIFA Footballer of the Year at The Best FIFA Football Awards 2018 in London on Monday night.

In the latest incarnation of football’s governing body’s big awards ceremony there was some confusion as different players in the same position were recognised, after ‘fictional rapper’ Big Shaq opened the show.

Many also refused to approve of Mo Salah’s Puskás Award-winning goal and debated Dani Alves’s inclusion in the World XI.

Missing from the star-studded event were former contestants for the top prize, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, noted by the winner:

I don’t want to enter into the debate of whether it is deserved or not, I just want to thank all the people that voted for me for their support.

Everyone has their own reasons. Obviously I would have liked them to be here but they aren’t.

These were the best jokes from the FIFA Football Awards 2018:

I don't think I can be friends with anyone who values this Fifa Best thing. It's not what I signed up to football for.

Mo Salah is in the top 3 best players in the world, but he's not in the FIFA Pro 11. How is that possible?#FIFAFootballAwards #TheBest pic.twitter.com/SDU3nhhZoq

Mo Salah is probably given this award as compensation because that's the worst goal to win a Puskas ever #FIFAFootballAwards
