Lopetegui responds to Messi: I would not doubt Madrid's players

Ronaldo Messi

The goals in line for the Puskas Award for the best of the year have been revealed by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

And while Dalic took aim at Ronaldo, he concedes he might have gone too far in saying "Ronaldo is an egoist and I'd never want him in my team".

Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi, a five-time Ballon d'Or victor, missed out on a place in the top three.

"I don't think so it's not about one player you know, of course in the past years Juventus did a great job in the Champions League". Talking about the finalists in the run for this award, they are the similar faces, who were in the contest of UEFA's Best Player Award this year.

The FIFA announcement came as a shock, as Lionel Messi was left off the shortlist, to give the ground to Ronaldo, after a decade of fascinating duel for the sport's top individual award.

Sen. Murkowski pays tribute to Sen. John McCain in floor speech
McCain's burial plot was next to his classmate and friend, Admiral Chuck Larson, a former commander of U.S. McCain's lifetime that attacked the senator's military service and questioned his status as a war hero.

They are Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah. He was the second highest goal scorer in the competition with four goals, and the third best player at the World Cup. To put into perspective how long ago that was, the top three that year were Fabio Cannavaro, Zinedine Zidane, and Ronaldinho.

Midfielder Modric, also part of Real's Champions League triumph, finished runner-up with Croatia at the World Cup, winning the best player award at the tournament in Russian Federation.

Not to forget, the midfield genius at Real Madrid was also awarded the best player of the recently ended FIFA World Cup 2018.

However, this might not have actually been the best goal he scored last season, as he netted quite brilliantly in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Roma.

Though Madrid lost the UEFA Super Cup to neighbours Atletico, Los Blancos have made a superb start to life under former Spain coach Lopetegui, taking nine points from their first three LaLiga games.
