2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™

14 June - 15 July

Presented by

adidas Golden Boot Award

England's Harry Kane finished as the leading goalscorer at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ to win the adidas Golden Boot. France's Antoine Griezmann and Belgium's Romelu Lukaku finished second and third respectively. 

If two or more players are tied on goals, the winner is determined by total assists. If assists cannot split them, the players who played the least minutes will emerge with the prize.
