17 July, 2018, 03:04 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

With a penalty in the opening match against Nigeria and a stunning goal against Argentina, the Real Madrid star scored two goals and won the Man of the Match award four times.

"I am proud of the award", Modric said. "You know that despite the defeat you've achieved something big, but it's hard when you come so close and fall short".

Belgium captain Eden Hazard finished second in the running for the Golden Ball, with France's Antoine Griezmann, who also scored his fourth goal of the tournament in the final, coming third.

Federation Internationale de Football Association named Real Madrid midfielder Modric as the best player in the tournament after the final that France won 4-2 against Croatia.

The four main awards have been dished out to players from four different countries, although all the winners play for European nations after a disappointing tournament for the South American sides.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane lifted this edition's Golden Boot after scoring six goals for England.

The Chelsea player helped Roberto Martinez's side to a third-place finish after conceding just six goals in seven games. Grizemann had two assists and Lukaku one, while the others were not credited with any.

The Spain national team went home with the Fair Play Award.
