  • Champions League all-time top scorers Lionel Messi added to his tally yesterday

"There is only one player that has won the Champions League and the World Cup and he is called Varane", three-time Ballon d'Or victor Michel Platini said last month.

Luka Modric has won the 2018 Ballon d'Or ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezman, with Lionel Messi coming fifth.

Manchester City have two players in the top 30 of this year's Ballon d'Or rankings according to results that have been leaked early from the ongoing award ceremony.

On other hand, Griezmann helped his country to win the World Cup during the summer and won the Europa League and the Uefa Super Cup with Atletico Madrid.

Lucia, attended college in Arkansas and had been working in Dallas for accounting and consulting firm PwC. When she opened the door, she saw the interior was nearly completely dark, according to the affidavit.

The last player to win the prize apart from Messi and Ronaldo, was Kaka in December 2007.

Like Griezmann, the 19-year-old played a crucial role in France's World Cup winning team in Russian Federation, having scored 4 goals (including one in the finals) to win him the competition's Young Player Award.

Ronaldo however will not be at Monday evening's gala as he has already been informed that he is not the victor.

Varane played every minute of France's victorious World Cup campaign, even captaining the team in the draw with Denmark that ensured they topped the Group C, while he also later scored the crucial opening goal in the 2-0 quarter final win over Uruguay.

The Frenchman finished third in the race for the award in 2016, and may be set for a better ranking this time around.

The year of 2018 has been the year of Luka Modric and there is no better evidence than with the Ballon d'Or victory. France's Kylian Mbappe is heavily favored to win the latter honor, while Americans Lindsey Horan and Megan Rapinoe are up for the women's award.

France Football, which hands out the Ballon d'Or, and FIFA combined their awards to create the FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2010.
