League wonder goal overlooked for Fifa's Puskas Award

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's votes for the FIFA Best Men's Player award have been revealed and they are very interesting.

Modric, was an integral part of Madrid's Champions League winning team, before leading his national side to runners-up position at the 2018 World Cup.

Salah scooped the award with his strike against Everton, and Milner piped up on Twitter to congratulate the Egyptian for winning with his "seventh best" effort last season.

Messi was also nominated for the Puskas Award for the best goal.

Republic of Ireland captain Séamus Coleman voted for Modric as his number one choice, followed by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, while manager Martin O'Neill picked the Barcelona star as his choice of Player of the Year.

The goal, which Salah beautifully curled into the corner on a snowy afternoon against Merseyside rivals Everton, beat off competition from a stacked list of incredible goals.

The 32-year-old Marta, whose Orlando Pride team reached the U.S. National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) playoff semi-finals, had won the previous FIFA Women's Player of the Year award five times, most recently in 2010.

Salah topped a vote on the Federation Internationale de Football Association website for his moment of individual brilliance against Liverpool's Merseyside rivals, when he picked the ball up on the edge of the Everton box before shrugging off his marker and curling the ball into the top corner.

Salah's teammate James Milner spoke for several fans with his take on the award.

"I don't want to enter into the debate of whether it is deserved or not", he said.

Meanwhile, Didier Deschamps won Men's Coach of the Year ahead of Croatia's Zlatko Dalić and Zinedine Zidane. "I'm looking forward to another award tonight".
