The Race of the Golden Boot Award 2018
The Golden Boot Award previously was known as Golden Shoe Award. It’s the award that given to the player who scores the most goals up to the end of the FIFA World Cup tournament. Colombia’s James Rodriguez was the winner in the previous edition. But, it was Germany’s Thomas Muller who was the winner in 2010. There is a lot of competition for the award as several newer players have emerged on the horizon and are in-form before the start of the tournament this year. Before the World Cup begins, it was assumed that either Messi, or Ronaldo even Neymer would be at the Golden Boot Award Race. But, the predictions were completely wrong. None of them are in the list. This is because the team of Ronaldo and Messi is out of the tournament from the round of sixteen.
So, now, we can predict some new footballers those who are in the super eight. We have seen from Kylian Mbappe, to Romelu Lukaku to England’s very own Harry Kane are some of the best forwards in the world at the form of goal-scoring. The top goal scorer in Russia is England’s Harry Kane so far. As a result, he is a number one prediction to win the Golden Boot Award 2018. If it happens, Kane will be England’s first winner of the Golden Boot since Gary Lineker in 1986.
Who are at the Top of the Golden Boot Award 2018?
Shot at winning the Golden Boot Award in Russia this year, here are 8 of them. The first time that had happened for 32 years before Kane repeated the feat 24 hours later against Panama where Lukaku has scored two in each of Belgium’s games so far. So, Kane’s five goals would have been enough to win the Golden Boot award in two of the last three World Cups
