England striker Harry Kane is confirmed as the Golden Boot winner at the 2018 World Cup after Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe failed to match his tally of six goals.

England striker Harry Kane has won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup after finishing the tournament with the highest number of goals.

The Tottenham Hotspur marksman scored six times in Russia, two ahead of a five-man chasing pack come the end of Sunday's final between France and Croatia.

Les Bleus duo Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe struck in their country's 4-2 win over the Vatreni, which put both players on four goals apiece.

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Russia winger Denis Cheryshev also scored four times, leaving Kane top of the pile come the tournament's conclusion.

Three of Kane's strikes came in the 6-1 win over Panama, two were scored in the 2-1 defeat of Tunisia, and the sole goal outside of the Group G games was a penalty against Colombia.

Kane is England's second World Cup Golden Boot winner, following in the footsteps of Gary Lineker, who scored six goals at Mexico 1986.
