Frequently Asked Questions on the Golden Boot
What is the Golden Boot award?
The Golden Boot is awarded to the player who scores the most goals at the World Cup.
How is the Golden Boot decided?
The player that scores the most goals outright will win the Golden Boot, officially awarded by FIFA.
However, if two or more players finish on the same amount of goals, then the player with the most assists will win it.
If the tied players also have the same amount of assists then it comes down to who has played fewer minutes.
The Top Scorer Odds market can be different to the Golden Boot as dead heat rules can apply if players are tied. So always check what type of market it is and the T&Cs for each individual bookmaker.
