See below for full odds

Below we take a look at the top 10 contenders for the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot award, as well as identifying a handful of outsiders who could make their mark in Brazil.

Neymar (Brazil)

Brazilian superstar Neymar has an astonishing record for his country and recently justified all the hype by winning the acclaimed Golden Ball award at the 2013 Confederations Cup. The Barcelona striker scored four goals in five games during the tournament, including the second in Brazil's comprehensive victory against Spain in the Final.

Lionel Messi (Argentina)

Critics have slammed Lionel Messi for failing to replicate his club form at international level, especially at major tournaments. Still, the World’s best player has the ability to score a goal at any given moment and he will be gunning to roar Argentina to success on the home soil of their fiercest rivals.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

The Portugal skipper is a true inspirational icon who has already been capped over 100 times for his country. As always he will be his side’s main man which, of course, he thrives on. In Brazil they need to find that extra gear to really kick on and make the Finals, and their progress will almost certainly depend on the form of Ronaldo.

Robin Van Persie (Netherlands)

Holland flopped at the 2012 European Championships but the 2010 World Cup runners-up have the talent and experience to go all the way in Brazil. Key to their chances is Robin Van Persie - who has nearly a goal a game for his country - and the Man Utd striker will be gunning to lead Oranje to a second successive Final.

Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan (Uruguay)

Uruguay have an envied frontline consisting of Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Diego Forlan. All three strikers are capable of winning the award, making Uruguay a decent outside bet in the outright odds market.

Thomas Muller (Germany)

The 2010 World Cup Golden Boot winner, Thomas Muller, is a pivotal player for both Germany and club side Bayern Munich. The attacking midfielder is known for scoring crucial goals in big matches and will be looking to carry on that trend in the summer of 2014. He netted five goals in South Africa and will no doubt be in the mix for the award come the latter stages of next summer's tournament.

Fernando Torres (Spain)

Not always handed a spot in the starting line-up but after bagging the Golden Boot at the 2013 Confederations Cup Fernando Torres is brimming with confidence. When on form he has he sensational but the Chelsea striker is very much a confidence player these days and Vicente del Bosque will need to work his magic to get the best out of him.

Mario Balotelli (Italy)

Mario Balotelli has been on fire since moving back to his homeland to AC Milan. The striker enjoyed a fantastic Euro 2012 tournament, which included a stunning brace against Germany in the semi-finals. The controversial, yet immensely talented frontman also excelled at the 2013 Confederations Cup but was unfortunate to be ruled out of the semi-finals and third spot play-off with an injury.


There are a number of other players who have the ability to win the Golden Boot, with Muller showing in South Africa that any player can upset the odds and finish top of the pile. Amongst the other contenders include Javier Hernandez (Mexico), Gonzalo Higuain (Argentina), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Netherlands), while Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic and Radamel Falcao of Colombia are worth a punt.

Belgium are experiencing a Golden Generation at the moment and are many people’s outside pick to go all the way in Brazil. Their main goalscoring threats will be the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Christian Bentekem and Kevin Mirallas.

From an English perspective Wayne Rooney will again be the main man. However, other players to look out for include Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard who both have the ability to score goals from midfield in what is likely to be their final major tournament for The Three Lions.

Previous World Cup Golden Boot Winners

In South Africa there was a surprise winner in Thomas Mueller of Germany who grabbed five goals. Fellow countrymen Miroslav Klose was victorious four years earlier, while Ronaldo grabbed eight goals en route to helping Brazil win in 2006. Davor Suker scored six at France 1998, where as Oleg Salenkov (Russia) and Hristo Stoichkov (Bulgaria) shared the gong in 1994 with six goals apiece.
