Also, Salah's winning of the Puskas award came as a huge surprise, considering the overhead strikes executed by Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, which were two of the best goals scored this year.

Mohamed Salah picked up 11.23 percent of the total vote to finish in third overall, though it was mostly the captains of minor Federation Internationale de Football Association nations who backed the Egyptian winger. Legendary Brazilian forward Marta and first-time nominee Reynald Pedros were rewarded as The Best FIFA Women's Player and Women's coach respectively.

However he did claim the FIFA Puskas Award for his solo effort against Everton last season.

The back four is dominated by Real men; with Marcelo, Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos positioned next to PSG right-back Dani Alves.

And Steve Sidwell agreed with Merson that Salah should have been named in the team of the year with Thibaut Courtois also missing out despite being crowned the best goalkeeper in the world.

There are some football fans that believe Gareth Bale's sublime bicycle kick against Liverpool in the Champions League final should have been crowned the undisputed victor.

"I hope this is not the last prize of the night", said Salah.

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