Going by the current statistics, England’s captain, Kane may emerge the top scorer of the competition if either of Antonio Griezzman and Kylian Mbappe fail to get 3goals each in Final match tomorrow in order to match 6goals already scored by the Tottenham Hotspur striker.

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino led some other dignitaries to present medals to the Referee team and also presented the Bronze medal to the Belgium side.
