Fifa got the Luka Modric decision right at the Best awards but naming Marta as the women’s best sends the wrong signals
Fifa’s annual Best awards were held in London on Monday and it is fair to say they have created much debate. I can see why and no more so, in my opinion, than in regards to the women’s prize.
