Harry Kane odds-on for World Cup Golden Boot after Lukaku blank

Kane 5/6 with bet365 to top score after Romelu Lukaku fails to find net against Japan

Harry Kane remains top of the World Cup scoring charts heading into England’s last sixteen clash against Colombia, with the Three Lions captain having plundered five goals during the group stage.

Kane bagged a brace against Tunisia before a hat-trick against Panama, with the Tottenham forward one clear of Romelu Lukaku who failed to score any of Belgium’s three goals against Japan.

While Lukaku remains in the competition after that heroic comeback from the Red Devils, the Manchester United forward will face Brazil in the quarter finals and that will represent a tricky assignment when it comes to scoring.

Bet365 offer 5/6 that Kane top scores at the tournament and it might be the case that he doesn’t need to add to his tally of five in order to claim the outright prize, although there is clearly the potential for him to score against Colombia and then potentially do the same against Switzerland or Sweden.

Lukaku is available at a best price 6/1 to win the Golden Boot and had chances to score against the Blue Samurai, although he might find life difficult against a Brazilian defence who has only conceded one goal at the tournament thus far.

Kylian Mbappe is 8/1 and sits on three goals after his brace against Argentina, although France face Uruguay next before they potentially clash with a Brazil side with that obstinate defence.

Beyond those front three in the betting, we have Neymar on two goals and priced at 16/1, while Antoine Griezmann is a 25/1 shot.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
