The Golden Boot for the 2018 World Cup was, as tradition dictates, awarded to top scorer in the tournament England captain Harry Kane.
An unquestionable sign of world-class quality and international prestige, there are few better indicators of greatness than when a player manages to score more goals than anyone else at the world’s greatest sporting event.
With Eusebio, Garrincha and the original Ronaldo among its previous winners, the Golden Boot has kept company with some of the best footballers of all time, and it’s England’s Harry Kane who won the feat at the 2018 Russia World Cup.
Six-goal Kane has proven himself priceless, demonstrating killer instinct and nerves of steel on his country’s path to the semi-finals.
Kane’s tally of six was enough to win it and he has already equalled compatriot Gary Lineker’s tally from 1986. However, he was a long way off the record set by France’s Just Fontaine in 1958, who managed an astonishing 13 goals.
