Harry Kane’s fine goal-scoring record for England, bagging a hat-trick against Panama on Saturday, launch him ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo to win the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot, BirminghamMail reports.
The two penalties and deflected finish took Kane’s tally to five after just two games, one in front of the Real Madrid talisman.
In total, 38% of all bets on the Golden Boot since England’s captains bagged his hat-trick have been placed on the Spurs hitman.
In 2014, James Rodriguez of Colombia was awarded the Golden Boot with five goals, and Harry Kane has guaranteed himself at least two more games to add to his existing tally.
England are looking strong and if Kane can keep scoring, aside from the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot, Harry Kane might just be lifting the World Cup as well.
