Kane wins WC Golden Boot

England’s Harry Kane won the World Cup Golden Boot award as top scorer with six goals, reports AFP from Moscow. Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois won the golden glove with more than 20 saves in the tournament. The Tottenham star topped the chart by two goals ahead of a group including Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe, who both scored in France's 4-2 defeat of Croatia in Sunday's final.

Kane is the first England player to win the coveted prize since Gary Lineker 32 years ago. He scored twice against Tunisia in England's first match in Russia and then bagged a hat-trick in a 6-1 romp against Panama. Kane failed to add to his tally in England's next three games -- the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden, the 2-1 semi-final loss to Croatia nor the 2-0 third-place play-off defeat by Belgium.

Joining Griezmann and Mbappe on the four-goal mark were Russia's Denis Cheryshev, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo and Belgium's Romelu Lukaku.

World Cup top scorers:

6 goals: Kane (ENG) - Golden Boot winner

4 goals: Cheryshev (RUS), Ronaldo (POR), Griezmann (FRA), Lukaku (BEL), Mbappe (FRA)

3 goals: Cavani (Uruguay), Costa (Spain), Dzyuba (Russia), E. Hazard (Belgium), Mandzukic (Croatia), Mina (Colombia), Perisic (Croatia)

2 goals: Aguero (Argentina), Coutinho (Brazil), Granqvist (Sweden), Inui (Japan), Jedinak (Australia), Khazri (Tunisia), Modric (Croatia), Musa (Nigeria), Neymar (Brazil), Salah (Egypt), Son Heung-min (South Korea), Stones (England), Suarez (Uruguay)

Golden Gloves:

Belgium’s Thibaut Courtois won the golden glove as he is the best goalkeeper so far at the World Cup in terms of numbers, with more than 20 saves in the tournament. He also supports the Belgian attack with his ball distribution.

It was his presence of mind to find a teammate in the last minute of extra time against Japan that led Belgium to an exciting victory. Courtois was decisive against the fluid attackers of Brazil, the quarter-final clash has proven to be his best performance at the tournament so far.

The Chelsea shot-stopper hasn't faced a penalty shootout in the tournament so far. However, Courtois has a high chance to win Golden Glove even though Belgium didn’t make their way to the final.
