World Cup Top Goal Scorers (Golden Boot)

World Cup Top Goal Scorers – The Golden Boot. These are the ‘golden shoe’ or ‘golden boot’ winners from each World Cup event since the start of the FIFA World Cup in 1930 in Uruguay. The record for the most goals at a single World Cup is 13 by Frenchman Just Fontaine in 1958, which he achieved in six games. The overall top goal scorer in the Wolrd Cup is German player Miroslav Klose, who has scored 16 goals overall. See the list of World Cup Top Goal Scorers.

The current rules for a tie-breaker, is that if there is a tie for the most number of goals in the tournament, the award goes to the player who has given the most assists (as decided by the FIFA Technical Study Group). If there is still more than one player, the tie-breaker goes to the player who has played the least amount of time. Goals scored from penalty shoot-outs are not counted
