Race for the Golden Boot heats up

GOLDEN BOOT RACE

HEATS UP IN FRANCE

The adidas Golden Boot is one of the biggest prizes in world football, and there are many talented scorers chasing it at the FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019...

At Canada 2015, two players - Celia Sasic of Germany and Carli Lloyd of the USA - scored 6 goals and had an assist each. But the German won the award by virtue of having played fewer minutes.

4 women are atop the scoring charts in France on 5 goals. Three of them are still active: Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe (USA) and Ellen White (ENG), while Australia and Sam Kerr are out.

The Americans have 3 assists each to White's none, and Morgan leads the way because she has played fewer minutes.

4

Two stars sit on 4 goals each - Cristiane of Brazil and Wendie Renard of France - but both have bid farewell to the tournament and so will not catch the front-runners...

3

Further off the pace are six players with a hat-trick of goals, although all but Carli Lloyd (USA) and Vivianne Miedema (NED) will play no further part in the tournament.

WATCH ALL THE ACTION AGAIN
