Tottenham striker Harry Kane and the England national team head coach Gareth Southgate received awards from the Order of the British Empire for their merits at the World Cup in Russia last summer.

Having led the England team on an ongoing basis in November of 2016, Southgate immediately set about rejuvenating the squad and was able to return a positive atmosphere to the team.

At the 2018 World Cup, Southgate’s players, for the first time in the last 28 years, entered the top four best teams in the world, and Kane, the captain of the Three Lions, became the top scorer of the tournament with six goals.

According to Sky Sports, for his success, Kane was named the holder of the Order of the British Empire (MBE). Southgate received the reward of one rank higher – Order Officer (OBE).

On the eve of the New Year, the Crown rewarded one more person related to football. Richard Scudamore, who left the post of the Premier League head, became the Commander of the Order (CBE) for his contribution to the game and sports at all.
