In 2010, four players finished at the top after scoring five goals each. Thomas Muller of Germany won the Golden Boot, as he had three assists to his name, while David Villa, Wesley Sneijder and Diego Forlan managed to get one assist each.

The rule says that If two or more players score the same number of goals and have the same number of assists, total playing minutes will be considered when awarding the trophy. Fewer minutes played, the better.

Who do you think will win the Golden Boot this year?
