UEFA Nations League Final 2021 Rewards And Top Scorers: Kylian Mbappe And Sergio Busquets Rewarded
The tournament only rewards two players with the top goal scorer and the best player award. Unlike FIFA World Cup and Euro 2020, there are no awards for young players and goalkeepers. But, we have made a list of these players too based on the performances.
The method of rewarding the goalscorer is different from tournaments like Euro and FIFA World Cup. Here there are four deciding factors which are
- goals in Nations League Finals
- assists in Nations League Finals
- fewest minutes played in Nations League Finals
- goals in the league phase
Kylian Mbappe scored twice in the tournament and also assisted twice in the tournament. The second was a decider goal which secured the trophy for the French national team. Here are the stats:
- Kylian Mbappé: 2 Goals, 2goals
- Ferran Torres; 2 Goals, 0 assists
- Karim Benzema: 2 goals, 0 assist
Spanish midfielder Sergio Busquets was awarded as the best player of the tournament. UEFA designed a trophy in collaboration with Hisens and named the award as The Hisense Player of the Finals.
Opinion: Best Goalkeeper
French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris conceded goals in both the games played but made some sensational saves. If there would have been any award like this, Lloris surely would have received this one.
Opinion: Best Young Player
Ferran Torres played well in both the games for Spain. His two goals helped Spain to make their way into the finals. So, Torres is our player in the tournament.
