Russia: FIFA World Cup 2018 has been a roller coster ride till now. The tournament started on a bright note with Russia pumping in five goals against Saudi Arabia in the opener. Since then Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku of Belgium, England captain Harry Kane, Russia's Denis Cherysev, Diego Costa of Spain and several other players including Argentina's  Lionel Messi's have found the opposition's net. 

The biggest sports extravaganza has seen some classic games, individual brilliance and great teamwork along with some of the finest goals of all time. From Messi's twister to Ronaldo's free-kick, from Kane's hat-trick to  Panama's Felip Baloy's hard-earned goal, this World Cup gave us some exceptional performances.

Star players like Mohamed Salah of Egypt have not had a memorable tournament with the African team failing to progress beyond the group stage but he too has two goals against his name. Be it Argentina being almost knocked out from the tournament or Germany facing the ignominy of crashing out in the group stages for the first time since 1938, the tournament has given several enjoyable moments.
 
The top goalscorer at every FIFA World Cup is awarded the Golden Boot. If two or more players are tied on goals, the winner will be decided by the total assists. If assists cannot split them, the players who played the least minutes will walk away with the prize.
