France’s 19-year-old star Kylian Mbappe was named the tournament’s Best Young Player after scoring Les Bleus’ fourth goal on Sunday, becoming the youngest since Pele in 1958 to find the net in the final.
Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois won the Golden Glove as the best goalkeeper for helping his team to a third-place finish after allowing just six goals in seven games.
He kept three clean sheets — against Panama and England in the group stage before blanking England again in the third-place game.
When the final whistle came, England captain Harry Kane was confirmed as the Golden Boot winner, his six goals outpacing the four of Griezmann, who got the Silver Boot and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, the Bronze boot winner
