England captain Kane voted for ex-Liverpool star over Mbappe at FIFA Best awards

England captain Harry Kane voted for ex-Liverpool star Sadio Mane ahead of Kylian Mbappe at the FIFA Best Player awards on Monday evening.

As the captain of the Three Lions, Kane could vote for the awards – with national team captains, national team managers, journalists, and fans making up the vote. Kane opted for eventual winner Lionel Messi as his top vote.

While he had Mane – who left Liverpool over the summer for Bayern Munich – in second place. And Kane rounded out his top three Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema, leaving no room for Mbappe.

Kane wasn't the only member of England's World Cup squad who was able to cast a vote in the FIFA Best awards.

National team boss Gareth Southgate also voted on his top three players on Monday evening. And the 52-year-old, like Kane, opted for Messi as his top pick.

However, in second place, Southgate voted for Croatian superstar Luke Modric, with Mbappe finishing third in Southgate's rankings.
