RUSSIA 2018 : HARRY KANE WINS GOLDEN BOOT AS GRIZEMANN WINS SILVER

England’s Harry Kane finished as the leading goalscorer at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ to win the adidas Golden Boot. France’s Antoine Griezmann and Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku finished second and third respectively.

If two or more players are tied on goals, the winner is determined by total assists. If assists cannot split them, the players who played the least minutes will emerge with the prize.

Harry Kane provided proof, if it were needed, that he is one of the best finishers in the business, helping to fire England to their best finish since Italy 1990. The Tottenham striker made a fast start to the tournament with a double against Tunisia and a hat-trick against Panama before converting from the spot against Colombia in the Round of 16.
