FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 Golden Boot
June 21, 2019 -- The FIFA Women’s World Cup takes place in France, with 24 teams competing to be crowned World Champions. United States striker Alex Morgan and Australia captain Sam Kerr lead the race for the Golden Boot after netting five goals each in the opening games.
Alex Morgan started her World Cup campaign in superb fashion, hitting five goals as reigning champions United States established a new World Cup goals record with a 13-0 demolition of Thailand. However, injury blighted Morgan’s last group stage game against Sweden -- playing only 45 minutes -- and now faces a race to be fit for the knockout stages.
While Australia captain Sam Kerr netted four times in the Matildas convincing group stage victory over Italy, to guarantee progress to the knockout stage for the fourth successive tournament.
