FIFA World Cup Golden Boot Winners

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

The FIFA World Cup Golden Boot award started off to be known as just Top Goalscorer but not known as an award.

Every World Cup year only had a ranking of the goalscorers until 1982 when, for the first time, an award was given called Golden Shoe Award.

And then after a few more editions, the Golden Shoe award was rechristened FIFA World Cup Golden Boot award in 2010.

Where there is more than one player with the same number of goals, the tie-breaker goes to the player with fewer goals scored from penalties, and that has been happening since 1994.

The next tie-breaker goes to the person with more assists – with the FIFA Technical Study Group deciding whether an assist is to be counted as such.

And where there is still more than one player, the tie-breaker goes to the player who has played the least amount of time, which translates to a higher goal average, which started in 2006.
