Mbappe beats Dembele, Rashford to win Golden Boy Award

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has emerged as the Golden Boy 2017 award winner ahead of Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele and Marcus Rashford of Manchester United.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport, which runs the award given to the best player in Europe under the age of 21, announced on Saturday that Mbappe had been joined in the final three by Dembele and Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City, but the results published on Monday showed Rashford third with four more voting points (76) than the Brazilian (72).

Mbappe (291) and Dembele (149) were some way ahead, with the PSG star succeeding Renato Sanches – who failed to make the top 10 – as the winner of the award.
