Salah goal vs Arsenal5.

Fifa's Puskas award is entirely voted for by fans, and...

Now with Real Madrid, the 26-year-old Courtois joked before his award was announced that Federation Internationale de Football Association should also hand out a save-of-the-year prize.

That included overhead kick stunners from Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in last season's Champions League, as well as sublime efforts at the World Cup from France's Benjamin Pavard - which won goal of the tournament - and Russia's Denis Cheryshev. What drugs is #FIFA on?

Salah was delighted to pick up the award, despite the controversy. Modric beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Mo Salah to claim the top prize.

Another observer merely asked: "Wtf Salah?"

Even James Milner couldn't resist a dig while congratulating his Liverpool teammate...

On a fairly nonsensical night of skewed fan votes and meaningless, faux-prestige popularity contests, the charade was perhaps best demonstrated by Mohamed Salah emerging from the Royal Festival Hall with the 2018 Puskas Award tucked beneath his arm.

Salah was thrilled to have landed the Puskas Award and expressed his delight after being handed the trophy by Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

Deschamps said: "I want to thank the president of the French Federation who trusted me and helped me work serenely".

Forwards Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Eden Hazard all featured in the team ahead of Salah who amassed far more votes than them and came closest to winning the titular award.
