Luka Modric claims 2017 Club World Cup golden ball

There can be no arguments after Luka Modric was handed the golden ball award as the best player at the 2017 Club World Cup.

Magnificent in orchestrating the play in both of Real Madrid’s wins, the Croatian came within inches of getting his name on the scoresheet as his team beat Gremio 1-0 on Sunday.

Named the man of the match in the semi-final victory over Al-Jazira, Modric came ahead of teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the silver ball for the tournament and the man of the match prize for the final.

Coming third was Pachuca winger Jonathan Urretaviscaya, as decided by the FIFA technical committee.
