2022 World Cup top scorers: Richarlison hits brace to level Bukayo Saka in Golden Boot race

S

ix players hit the opening week suspenders to lead the first race for the Golden Boot at the 2022 World Cup.

Goals from Olivier Giroud, Bukayo Saka, Enner Valencia and Mehdi Taremi put them top of the table at the start of the tournament in Qatar, and they now have company after Ferran Torres scored twice against Costa Rica and Richarlison scored twice against Serbia.

Kylian Mbappe, Raheem Sterling and Lionel Messi all hit the back of the net, but reigning Golden Boot holder Harry Kane failed to register in England’s opener.

Jack Grealish, Jude Bellingham and Marcus Rashford feature early in the race for England after that crushing win over Iran, while six Spain players have already found the back of the net. Cristiano Ronaldo escaped from the penalty spot.
