Harry Kane has finished as the World Cup’s top scorer to join Gary Lineker as England’s only Golden Boot winners.
The 24-year-old’s six-goal haul proved insurmountable as his nearest rivals fell short as France swept aside Croatia 4-2 in the final in Moscow.
Kane scored a brace in England’s Group G opener against Tunisia before netting a hat-trick against Panama and scoring a penalty as Colombia were overcome in the last-16.
The Tottenham striker tailed off and failed to score in England’s last three matches in Russia, but his six-goal haul was still two clear of a group of five players.
Lineker is the only previous Englishman to win the Golden Boot, having also managed six goals during the 1986 World Cup.
Lineker said on Twitter: “Congratulations to @HKane on winning the golden boot. Welcome to the club, young man.”
