The 24-year-old bagged a hat-trick in a 4-0 win over Mauritania and then scored again in a 3-1 defeat to Tunisia a few days later.

Spurs and England captain Kane also got the nod for scoring a whopping seven goals across matches against Albania and San Marino, while PSG and France star Mbappe was included after netting four times against Kazakhstan and once against Finland.

Other big names to make the cut include Xherdan Shaqiri (Lyon and Switzerland), Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa and Argentina) and Jonas Hoffman (Borussia Mönchengladbach and Germany).
