In addition to the victor, we highlight a number of honourable mentions who just missed out on the top prize.

Last week's winner was Senegal Under-23 attacker Moussa Konate, who scored a vital equaliser against Team GB in the Olympics, before scoring both goals as his side claimed an unlikely 2-0 win over Uruguay. He fended off competition from the likes of fellow Olympian Neymar and Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
