Modric, Mbappe, Kane, Courtois win World Cup individual winners

Croatia captian Luka Modric

France may have won the World Cup but it wasn’t the same joy for Les Bleus when it came to the individual honours.

Bar Kylian Mbappe who went home with the Young Player award, no French star clinched a solo accolade.

Harry Kane picked up the Golden Boot as the tournament’s top scorer.

The England captain scored six times in seven appearances to claim the prize for the tournament’s top scorer.

He became the first England player to win the award since Gary Lineker, who scored six times in the 1986 finals.

Kane finished two goals ahead of Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, Russia’s Denis Cheryshev, Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo and France duo Antoine Griezmann and Mbappe, the latter two both scoring in France’s 4-2 final victory over Croatia.

However, it was Luka Modric who returned to Croatia with the Golden Ball.

The Real Madrid superstar was phenomenal throughout the campaign and was rightfully rewarded as the best player.

For the Golden Glove, however, Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois had no rival.
