There are a host of stars still chasing the adidas Golden Boot at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia? but one player is out in front ...




The number of goals that won James Rodriguez the Golden Boot in 2014.

At South Africa 2010, 4 players tied with 5 goals, but Thomas Muller won the Golden Boot by virtue of having more assists. The next tie-breaker if necessary goes to the player who accomplishes their goals in the fewest minutes.


Harry Kane

So far in Russia, the big English striker leads the way with 6 goals in 273 minutes, including a brace against Tunisia and a hat-trick against Panama. 3 of his goals have been penalties.


Romelu Lukaku

Chasing Kane closest is the powerful Belgian with 4 goals in 239 minutes, including back-to-back braces against Tunisia and Panama

Needing 3 goals to catch Kane are Russian duo Artem Dzyuba and Denis Cheryshev, France wonderkid Kylian Mbappe and Uruguay star Edinson Cavani, who is struggling with an injury.

Diego Costa,

Yerry Mina
