England’s Harry Kane wins 2018 World Cup Golden Boot with six goals

England‘s 2018 World Cup campaign may have ended in semi-final heartbreak, but Captain Harry Kane is still celebrating a significant achievement after clinching the Golden Boot award.

The Tottenham talisman netted six times in as many appearances during an impressive run to the last four for Gareth Southgate‘s young side.

He becomes only the second England player to claim the honour of tournament top scorer and the first since 1986, when Gary Lineker also scored six as the Three Lions exited at the quarter-final stage in Mexico.

Kane joins an elite band of Golden Boot winners that also includes stars such as Ronaldo, Miroslav Klose, Mario Kempes, Eusebio, Gerd Muller, Just Fontaine, Thomas Muller and Davor Suker.

The 2014 award was won by James Rodriguez, the unquestioned star of Colombia’s vibrant campaign in Brazil.
