Who do you fancy to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup?
Really good question. No one really jumps out at me at all. I'd have to say Neymar, I think they could be a surprise package as they do have some decent plsyers
Always bangs them in at world cups.
Considering a bet on Giroud though.
Lukaku could be a good bet. He always scores for Belgium.
I would go with Neymar but coming off of a serious injury I'm not so sure.
I'll go with umm... Hmm... Lukaku looks a good bet as he's had a good year and you'd fancy Belgium to score a lot in their first two group games.
I'm going Griezmann. France to win too.
Could be Messi’s year? He has flattered to deceive in major tournaments so far but he’s due.
Obviously Argentina just scraped through qualifying and are not the same as old but they still have some serious attacking talent.
Won player of the tournament at last World Cup so yeah flattered to deceive.
Argentina squad look like a fantasy squad picked by a 10 year old used all the money on attackers and ended up with backup defenders and keepers.
Touché. I can now see that he did score 4 goals at the last World Cup! Anyway he’s my pick for the golden boot.
Argentina definitely have four sterling strikers in the squad. Their defence is okay with Otamendi and Rojo to name a couple. The midfield is okay without being spectacular, they do have experience in Mascherano and Banega plus Di María. Lo Celso is supposed to be a real talent but you can see why they have struggled of late.
They took a 37 yr old Palermo to the last World Cup
They've left the top scorer in Italy this season in Icardi out of this one.
Their attacking options are frightening but they're all centre forwards so they end up forcing someone like Aguero out to the wing as the only real winger is Di Maria.
My guess is Messi will play as the second striker off Aguero I can't see them starting Higauin but if they click in one game it's easy to see them being a big scoring team.
might have someone come out of the blue like Toto in 90 for Italy. Schillaciiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Ronaldo now on 4.
Costa on 3.
Kane off the mark the other night and has 2.
Lukaku - 4
Ronaldo - 4
Cheryshev - 3
Diego Costa - 3
Come on Romelu!
Could Kane be top of the charts at the end of the day? The Panama defence looks okay but if they get breached early it could be carnage.
Kane - 5
Includes two pens and one he knew nothing about
They all count.
Ronaldo has 1 pen and a gift from De Gea in his total.
Kane has actually been pretty quiet in both games.
