There is an abundance of world-class No. 9 plying their trade at the World cup this summer, with the center-forward position almost a lock for most top teams. Some of these strike s may bow out early, given the overall ability of their team, as seen in the case of Robert Lewandowski. Outside shouts for the Golden Shoe include Diego Costa, Javier Hernandez, Sergio Aguero, Radamel Falcao and so on. The ability for a striker to be able to grab as many goals as possible also depends on the talent behind them, and how far their team progresses in Russia. Here are some of the candidates.
1. Neymar – The Selecao have a team that can beat any other on a good day. The attacking trio of Coutinho, Jesus and Neymar instantly strikes fear into most defences. Neymar himself is indeed the talisman of this team, and if he gathers momentum, him and Brazil could well make it to the end, bagging numerous goals along the way. Betting odds are at 44/2.
2. Romelu Lukaku – The Manchester United No.9 has been in sizzling for Belgium in recent times, and has already bagged a number of important goals for his team. With players like Mertens, Hazard and de Bruyne assisting him, goals will come for the Belgian. Betting odds are set at 9/2 for Lukaku winning the Golden Shoe.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo – CR7 is possibly the only consistent goal threat that Portugal possesses. Quaresma, Bernardo Silva and so on will chip in here and there, but the brilliance of Ronaldo is what lead them to a unlikely Euros victory in 2016. If he gets the right service, he will be amongst the goals, and Portugal could go on quite a run in Russia. Betting odds are set at 9/2.
4. Harry Kane – The Spurs striker has been the best No. 9 is the Premier League for a while now, and he has carried that form into the World Cup. England has a young and promising team in Russia, and Kane has been vital, grabbing a game-winner against Tunisia and a hat-trick against Panama. If the team behind him delivers, he is sure to grab a lot of goals. Betting odds are set at 6/4.
