FIFPro World XI Revealed At FIFA's 'The Best' Awards

Three World Cup winners were included in the FIFA FIFPRO World XI, but there was no place for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

He wasn't in attendance to collect his award but Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line up top and completes a quite incredible side.

Luka Modric has been named Federation Internationale de Football Association men's Player of the Year.

'I voted for Luka Modric, but Mo Salah is my friend so I would like him to win, ' the Belgian admitted on the red carpet.

Ronaldo scored 44 goals in all competitions in his final season for Real Madrid, while Salah netted the same amount for Liverpool in 52 games, while also breaking the Premier League record for most goals in a 38-game season with 32. The reigning champions on Wednesday will face Bologna in their Italian Serie A match.

France's World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps won the best coach of the year prize in recognition for his work in leading Les Bleus to success in Russian Federation.
