World Cup 2022 Top Scorers -Who is leading the race for the Golden Boot so far?

Get your flags out as the World Cup is well underway – and some players will be targeting more than just the big trophy.

Brazil, France, Argentina, Germany, England and others will all be vying to win the sport’s biggest prize in Qatar.

However, stars such as Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will want a certain individual award.

The World Cup Golden Boot is one of the tournament’s most coveted prizes, with some of football’s legends having won it in the past.

Brazilian Ronaldo, Gary Lineker, Gerd Muller and Eusebio have all picked up the award before.

England’s Kane won it in 2018, and he’ll be hoping to do it all over again in Qatar.

France’s Karim Benzema, who won the Ballon d’Or earlier this year, WON’T be involved, however, as he has been ruled out of the tournament through injury.

But Brazil superstars Neymar and Vinicius Jr will be eager to bring the award back to the South American country.

In 2006 and 2010, Germany stars Miroslav Klose and Thomas Muller bagged the Golden Boot.

Colombia superstar James Rodriguez won it in 2014 but he won’t be involved in this tournament as his country failed to qualify.
