Golden Boot Contender

Neymar, Messi & Muller Lead Golden Boot Race

With the group stages of the World Cup done and dusted, the Golden Boot race is also heating up. Neymar, Lionel Messi and Thomas Muller have lived up to the expectations and are tied on top of the list with four goals each.

We have been previewing many of the contenders, who are producing the goods in Brazil and most of them haven’t disappointed. Here is an update on the current Golden Boot race standings.

Golden Boot Race Round Three:

1)      Neymar, Lionel Messi, Thomas Muller (4 goals)

2)      James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema, Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie, Xherdan Shaqiri, Enner Valencia (3 goals)

3)      Ahmed Musa, Jackson Martinez, Islam Slimani, Memphis Depay (2 goals and still in the tournament)

The top three have all been impressive throughout the tournament so far, scoring vital goals for their respective countries.

Neymar had drawn a blank in round two, but added his second brace of the tournament in Brazil’s 4-1 over Cameroon.

Meanwhile, Messi, is only one of two players who scored in all three group stage games and has also added a brace to his tally, leading Argentina to a 3-2 win over Nigeria.

Thomas Muller, caught up with the two superstars after scoring his fourth goal in Germany’s 1-0 over the USA.

We currently have six players tied in second spot, but only five of them are still in the tournament.

While Ecuador’s Enner Valencia has no chance to add another goal, Karim Benzema, Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie and Xherdan Shaqiri can all still hunt the top three.

Colombia’s James Rodriguez is also still in the race for the prestigious award, being the only other player to Lionel Messi who scored in all three group stage games.
