The adidas Golden Shoe Award of the 2002 goes to RONALDO who increased his lead by scoring two goals in the Final. His total of eight goals is the most since Gerd MULLER got ten goals in the 1970 World Cup.
The adidas Golden Shoe Award goes to the top goalscorer of the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Points are awarded on the basis of three points for a goal scored and one for an assist. The FIFA Technical Study Group will decide whether an assist is to be counted as such and the assists will only be counted if two or more players are equal on goals scored.
