The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is scheduled to begin on November 20 and fans are patiently waiting for some spectacular goals and are keeping their fingers crossed that their favourite football player will win the golden boot. The Golden Boot is the name of the prize that the FIFA association gives to the player who finishes the FIFA World Cup with the most goals scored overall.
In the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Harry Kane took home the golden boot award, and it will be interesting to see if the Tottenham Hotspur player can do it again in Qatar 2022. However, there are other players that have eyes on the prize and those footballers are mentioned in this article. There is a lot of anticipation and build-up towards the 2022 FIFA World Cup and if you would like to get in on the action and wager on the footballer that you think will win the Golden Boot award or bet on the nation that you think will become champions in the World Cup then you can test your luck and have the possible chance to win money with platforms like the ones here. Nevertheless, let’s get into discussing the footballers that have a good chance of winning the golden boot award.
Vinicius Junior – Brazil
Vinicius Junior is destined to have a successful career for many years to come. This very gifted winger is just 22 years old, and he has already established a name for himself in LaLiga. He is already an important cog in Real Madrid’s machine. In addition, he was responsible for the game-winning goal when Real Madrid played Liverpool in the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League final.
Only one goal has been recorded in his career to date with Brazil’s national team in international competition. However, we believe that this will soon change in Qatar, and we are certain that this youthful, explosive talent will be among the top contenders in the competition.
Harry Kane – England
Did you know that the current holder of the Golden Boot award is Harry Kane? He is a phenomenal goalscorer and has the uncanny ability to always be in the right spot at the right time. He has scored more than 50 goals for his country, and he is still considered to be one of the most dangerous strikers in the Premier League.
There is no reason why England shouldn’t come out on top of their group if they play to the same high standards that they have shown in the past. If Kane is able to avoid injury, we anticipate that he will once again be among the top candidates for the Golden Boot.
Karim Benzema – France
Benzema is recognised as one of the finest strikers of his time and is an outstanding talent for both Real Madrid and France. He has won several awards for his performance in both countries. Since 2009, he has scored more than 200 goals for Real Madrid, and he had a very successful 2021-22 season playing with Vinicius, who is also mentioned above in this article.
Benzema also has substantial FIFA World Cup experience, having participated in three tournaments (in 2010, 2014, and 2018), the most recent of which was won by France. This year, France boasts one of the most formidable teams, and Benzema should have no trouble scoring goals for his team.
And he just yesterday added the UEFA Player of the Season Year.
