Spread the love

We’ve all been religiously following our favorite footballers, and we can’t wait to see them out on the field again in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

But who’s going to get to take the Golden Boot home? Will it be one of the previous winners like Harry Kane, Rodriguez or Thomas Muller? Will it be someone new you never imagined? This World Cup is probably going to be Messi and Ronaldo’s last one. Although a Golden Ball winner, he’s yet to win a Golden Boot home. So, will he be the one?

Without wasting any more time, let’s go through the names of the top five potential winners. Whether you’re cheering for a nation or a player, one of these heroes may be the one to bring home the gold.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

A list of top potential winners for the Golden Boot would not be complete without Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese star is known as the all-time top-scorer in football’s history, having scored more goals than any person in international football. Besides, he has scored in four consecutive World Cups. If the footballer scores in this tournament, he will be the one and only player to score in five straight World Cups yet.

However, keep in mind that he hasn’t performed too well this season. He scored only one time in 10 Premier League fixtures, making three goals in 18 matches in all competitions. Besides, he only scored in one of his last nine matches.

Nevertheless, we still count him in the top 5 contestants of the Golden Boot and wait to see how far he goes with his skills. The 37-year-old is probably making his final appearance in this tournament, so make sure to keep your eyes on him.

Neymar (Brazil)

If we’re really going through potential Golden Boot winners in World Cup 2022, we can’t leave Neymar out! He’s already proven himself on the international stage, and we’ve seen him getting better and better with time.

In 2014, Neymar was just a 22-year-old, and his accident in the quarter-final left us shattered. At the Russia World Cup, Neymar just got to score a 2, as Brazil took a quarter-final exit. But the Brazilian team now heads to Qatar as the world’s top-ranked side and Neymar knows it’s his time to shine.

30-year-old Neymar scored a total of 15 times in 2022-23 competitions and his tally is better than either Mbappé or Lewandowski.

Neymar is a born leader and he always seems to step up when his team needs him the most. He’s got an amazing eye for goal, and he’s not afraid to take on defenders one-on-one. Plus, he’s got an incredible work rate—he never stops running until the final whistle blows.

Lionel Messi (Argentina)

As a legendary hero who is the most talented player on the planet, we can’t underestimate Messi. He has already declared that this is going to be the final time we see him in the World Cup. Wouldn’t it be amazing if the 35-year-old claimed the Golden Boot for the first time at the end of his glorious career?

Eight years ago, Messi was the Golden Ball winner for the best player. If he wins the Golden Boot, he could become the first player to win both the Golden Boot and Golden Ball ever since Salvatore Schillaci. But to do this, Messi will need to be extremely keen, and he does have the potential to do so.

Clearly, the 35-year-old is just getting better with time. The Argentine has scored 12 goals in 18 games this season, and already topped his goal total for PSG last term.

So if you’re looking for someone to bet on, then put your money on Messi. You won’t regret it.

Kylian Mbappe (France)

At just 23 years old, Mbappe is one of the top strikers in the world and a serious contender for the Golden Boot in the World Cup 2022.

He proved himself to be one of the top players in the last World Cup, his scores were only exceeded by Harry Kane. It gets even more fascinating when you realize that he was just 19 at that time and that it was his first-ever FIFA World Cup outing. As Messi and Ronaldo’s reign near an end, it looks as if another young superstar is on the rising.

Kylian has always proven to be nothing short of outstanding ever since the start of his career. For four consecutive seasons, he was the Ligue 1’s top-scorer. Since the last World Cup, the French forward scored 168 goals, only bettered by Lewandowski.

Mbappe hasn’t been so successful in the past months, scoring just two goals in five UEFA Nations League fixtures. Nevertheless, with 28 international goals under his belt, we know he’s the type of material to bag the Golden Boot.

Harry Kane (England)

Harry Kane, England’s pride, snatched the Golden Boot in the last edition of the World Cup in 2018. Even while facing extreme challenges from top dogs like Mbappe, Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, and others, Kane surprised the world by winning the top prize. 

Kane is a prolific goal scorer, and he’s been in great form lately. In 75 games, Harry Kane scored 51 goals. In fact, the beloved HurriKane is only three goals short of surpassing Wayne Rooney as scoring the most goals in all of English history.

With the way he’s performing, it’s no surprise if he hoists the Golden Boot again for the second time this season. Not to mention, he’s got a lot of fan support behind him. The English fans are notorious for their love of football, and they’ll be cheering him on until the end.
