June 14-July 15, 2018 -- The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia kicks off on June 14. The Golden Boot is awarded to the top goalscorer at each World Cup. In 2014, James Rodriquez of Colombia claimed the award after netting six times during the tournament, while Just Fontaine of France holds the record for most goals in a single World Cup, with 13 goals in 1958.

Fontaine is followed by Sandor Kocsis of Hungary, who scored 11 goals in 1954, Germany’s Gerd Muller, who netted 10 in 1970, and Portuguese legend Eusebio, who scored 9 in 1966.

Argentina’s Guillermo Stabile scored 8 goals in the first ever World Cup in 1930, a feat matched by Ronaldo of Brazil in 2002. Leonidas of Brazil (1938) and Poland’s Grzegorz Lato (1974) have 7 apiece.

From 1978-98 a clutch of players put 6 goals past the goalkeeper - Mario Kempes of Argentina (1978), Italy’s Paolo Rossi (1982), England’s Gary Lineker (1986), Italy’s Salvatore Schillaci (1990), Oleg Salenko of the Soviet Union and Hristo Stoichkov of Bulgaria, who shared the award in 1994, and Davor Suker of Croatia (1998).

Czech player Oldrich Nejedly top-scored with 5 in 1934, as did Germany’s Miroslav Klose and Thomas Muller, in 2006 and 2010 respectively.

A relatively low scoring tournament in 1962 saw six players share the prize on four goals apiece - Hungary’s Florian Albert, Valentin Ivanov of the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia’s Drazan Jerkovic, Chile’s Leonel Sanchez, and Hungarian duo Vava and Garrincha.
