Harry Kane has won the Golden Boot as the top scorer of the 2018 World Cup after no player in Sunday’s final, a 4-2 win by France over Croatia, surpassed his total of six goals.

France and Atletico Madrid Star Antoine Griezmann, who scored in the final, finished second with his four goals and two assists with Manchester United Star Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku having four goals and one assist, and Russia’s Denis Cheryshev, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo and France’s Kylian Mbappe also scored four goals, but did not create any others.

Harry did not score in any of England’s final three games in Russia but he scored five goals in the group stage — two strikes against Tunisia and a hat trick against Panama — and his penalty in the round of 16 against Colombia sealed the award

Gary Lineker, the former Tottenham and Barcelona striker, still holds the record for the most career England goals at World Cups, with a total of 10 scored in 1986 — where he won the Golden Boot — and 1990.
