Golden Boot Awards

2018 World Cup

The winner of the Golden Boot generally plays for a team that reaches the semi-finals of final which means he plays seven matches, barring injuries and tactical changes. The Golden Boot title goes to the player who scores the most goals. If more than one player scores the same amount of goals, the winner is the player with the most assists.

Here are the previous winners of the Golden Shoe and Golden Boot (from 2010) at the World Cup since there was first an award in 1982:

Kane Wins the Golden Boot

For the first time since Mexico in 1986 an English player won the Golden Boot Award. The writing was probably on the wall when the draw was made for the group stages of this tournament. England and Belgium found themselves drawn against Tunisia and Panama and it always looked as if the two stronger sides in the group would score plenty of goals against their lesser opponents.

That opinion was proved to be true as Harry Kane scored five goals in his two games against Tunisia and Panama. He scored in both halves of the opening match against Tunisia including that dramatic last minute winner. More was to come as he faced Panama scoring a hat-trick that included two penalties as the Panama defence practiced their all-in wrestling skills in the penalty area.

Romelu Lukaku also enjoyed his games against the two weaker sides in the group. He scored twice in both of the games leaving him a goal behind the English striker.

With qualification already confirmed, neither Kane or Lukaku played in the group decider between Belgium and England. They returned to action in the knock-out stages but Lukaku couldn't manage to score again and Kane only scored a penalty against Colombia in the last sixteen. His lack of goals when it really mattered wasn't good for England but his total of six goals did win him the Golden Boot.

It was Antoine Griezmann who finished in second place scoring four goals and two assists. The World Cup winner scored three penalties in the tournament. Next up was Lukaku thanks to his one assist. Also on four goals were Cristiano Ronaldo who only played four games with both of his goals coming in his first two games. He started off with a hat-trick against Spain and then scored the winner in their match against Morocco. 

Winner of the Young Player of the tournament, Kylian Mbappe scored four goals in the tournament highlighted by the two he got against Argentina in the last sixteen and his goal in the final.

Russia's Denis Cheryshev also scored four goals with three in his first two group games and the opening goal in their quarter-final against Croatia.  He did in fact find the net on five occasions as he scored an own goal against Uruguay.
