The Golden Boot is a coveted award. This award is given to the top scorer at each edition of the FIFA World Cup. The award was officially instituted in the 1982 World Cup. Until the 2006 World Cup, the award was known as the Golden Shoe award. In this, the second and third highest scorers were also given a silver and bronze shoe, respectively.
Argentina’s Guillermo Stabile became the first footballer to be conferred with the trophy for scoring eight goals in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 1930. France’s Just Fontaine owes the record for the most number of goals scored in a FIFA World Cup. Just Fontaine scored 13 goals in the 1958 edition in Sweden.
No player has won the Golden Boot more than once. But, only Brazilians were the ones who hold the record for winning the award maximum number of times. This happens on six occasions.
The unique shoe-shaped trophy weights about a kilogram. And, it is made of a brass alloy that is electroplated with gold. also read:-Cristiano girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez slams Portugal coach
