England haven’t returned home from Qatar completely empty handed after winning the Fair Play award for their disciplinary record at the tournament.

Before the famous trophy was handed over other awards were given out.
Messi and Mbappe won the Golden Ball and Golden Boot respectively, while Enzo Fernandez and Martinez won the Young Player of the Tournament and Golden Glove.
And England received what could only be described as the smallest of the consolation prizes.
Southgate’s side picked up just one booking on their way to a quarter-final exit.
That came to Harry Maguire, who was cautioned after an elbow to Anthony Griezmann in the 90th minute of the game.
