2022 World Cup top scorers: Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe battle for Golden Boot in final

Club mates, the Paris Saint-Germain pair will find themselves inside the Lusail Iconic Stadium in a battle for the ultimate glory.

Messi is currently leading due to his higher number of assists (3 vs 2) and the battle to finish as the tournament’s top scorer has yet another added layer.

Argentina striker Julian Alvarez and France striker Olivier Giroud have both scored four goals apiece and could both win the Golden Boot if they progress to a thrilling final.

As England’s campaign ended in the quarter-finals, it was a prolific tournament for Gareth Southgate’s side. Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford have both scored three times, sitting level with a group of players including Alvaro Morata, Cody Gakpo, Enner Valencia and Richarlison.
