Kylian Mbappe gets young player of the tournament award

Kylian Mbappe has won the young player of the tournament award at the FIFA 2018 World Cup – a gong for which players aged 21 or under are eligible.

The France starlet, (19)who produced an impressive display against Argentina in a last-16 suspenseful match, became the first teenager to score in a World Cup final since Pele in 1958 and took his tally in the tournament to four with a cool finish at the Luzhniki Stadium.

Harry Kane won the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot but Luka Modric was also honoured at Russia 2018.

The Real Madrid playmaker was on the losing side in Sunday’s showpiece event as France ran out 4-2 winners in Moscow but Modric was awarded the Golden Ball for player of the tournament.

Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois was named best goalkeeper after helping Roberto Martinez’s side to a third-place finish and conceded just six goals in seven matches.
