Harry Kane joins illustrious list of World Cup Golden Boot winners

England lost to Belgium in the third place play-off

The Russian showpiece, won by France on Sunday afternoon when they beat Croatia 4-2 in Moscow, has been touted as one of the best World Cups.

"Not many people get to say they've won a golden boot in a World Cup, it's a big achievement".

France forward Antoine Griezmann is the runner-up, having scored four goals, Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku is on the third place as he scored four goals as well, but Griezmann made more assists.

Kane, 24, ended the tournament with six goals after failing to score as the Three Lions lost 2-0 to Belgium in Saturday's third-place play-off.

England captain Harry Kane is now be nearly certain to finish the World Cup as the tournament's top scorer, but former Three Lions boss Sam Allardyce reckons the Spurs striker cost his Country the chance to secure a place in the final against France.

"I'm extremely proud and I'm sure I'll look back in a few weeks' time and take all these experiences in".

The award puts Kane in exalted company, with Eusébio, Garrincha and the Brazilian Ronaldo among the previous winners of the Golden Boot.

Kane matched the six goals scored by Gary Lineker in Mexico in 1986 to claim the accolade.

"Set-plays are a big part of the game so if I score every goal from a set-play I'm not too bothered". There have been games in this tournament when I could have done better but that's all part of the learning curve.

"Congratulations to @HKane on winning the golden boot", he tweeted.

"I'll hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully I can try and score in August this year", he said.

Subasic has been the hero in two World Cup penalty shoot-outs for Croatia and boy did he save his country there. Everyone has enjoyed it, coming up against teams who are not easy to play against.
