Vieira capped off a fine summer with a starting spot in the final to round off his three appearances in the tournament, which included a stunning strike against Qatar, while Pearce was an unused substitute for Aidy Boothroyd's men.

The 20-year-old left back, who penned a new deal at Elland Road earlier this week, was called upon twice in the tournament.

The United pair will now head off for a summer break before pre-season begins at Thorp Arch on June 25 having tasted success at international level.
