A Brief History Of World Cup Golden Boot

The Golden Shoe Award or Golden Boot goes to the top goalscorer of the FIFA World Cup. Assists serve as a tiebreaker with the FIFA Technical Study Group deciding whether an assist is to be counted as such. The assists will only be counted if two or more players are equal on goals scored. Further ties are settled in favor of the player with the least time played. The award was introduced at the 1930 World Cup for the first time.
