The Best FIFA Football Awards: Who dressed to impress?
The Best FIFA Football Awards are upon us, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah up for the men's most prestigious honour.
But whenever there's an opportunity for footballers to take home some personal hardware, there's invariably a red carpet for them to show off their fashion sense. The Toe Poke would be remiss if it didn't hone in on some of the night's most sleek, and out there, wardrobe decisions.
Dani Alves' months-long injury layoff can't dull his exuberance for wearing this black velvet jacket feature sparkling feathers over a black turtleneck. It's an ensemble one could picture Diego Simeone-- perhaps football's most famous Man in Black -- making famous if he became a magician with hourly shows on the Las Vegas Strip -- and that makes it a perfect choice for Alves.
Sergio Ramos has long had a flair for the dramatic, and this white tuxedo is certainly that. However, we can't help but feel he looks ready to take dinner orders on a luxury cruise liner.
Sure, Marcelo's got a sharp blue suit and a fun head of hair, that's all well and good. But his son Enzo is stealing the show in London! This little dude is adorable, with a mop top his father will surely be jealous of. Besides, he's got an individual award in his future -- remember this?
Individual awards, shmindividual shmawards. No one had bigger grins at The Best Awards than France's Kylian Mbappe and Didier Deschamps -- winning a World Cup will do that.
It's coming home! It's coming home! It's coming, Gareth Southgate's waistcoat's coming home!
Now 27 and arguably the brightest player in the Premier League at the moment, Eden Hazard has only gotten better with age -- much like this pinot noir-coloured suit.
We concede, it's the second Simeone reference we've made tonight, but there's no way Mohamed Salah pulled this double-breasted outfit out of anyone's closet but the Atletico Madrid manager's.
