While the squads for the FIFA 2022 World Cup are yet to have been released, we know that barring any unforeseen circumstances such as injuries, countries will look to call upon some of their biggest stars in order to compete.
Of course, it would have to be considered a tactic of self-destruction if we were not to see some of the biggest names competing in the world’s biggest football competition as they look to bring glory to their nation.
While there is no ‘I’ in team – although some may argue that there is an ‘m’ and an ‘e’ (me) – much of the attention will be on the attackers as these are supposed to be the guys that are paid the big money to make a difference and put the ball in the back of the net more often than they miss it.
With this in mind, it is hardly a surprise the race for the Golden Boot at the competition is one that is always closely followed by fans from all around the world. This is because sports betting has allowed them to gain from the excitement that can be had.
Indeed, if you would like to have a little punt on the 2022 FIFA World Cup but want to go against the grain of what everyone else is doing, then perhaps the Golden Boot race is the market for you?
Betway Sportsbook has already listed a number of odds that are available to take advantage of at this stage that each offer some value, with an Englishman and a Frenchman both leading the betting at the moment.
When you take a look at the names, though, it is hardly a surprise that both Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe top the list. For those interested, they are currently priced at 9/1 co-favourites to win.
If you do not fancy these individuals at the moment to do the business and obtain the Golden Boot, then perhaps you would be interested in Karim Benzema at 12/1, Lionel Messi at 14/1 or Neymar and Romelu Lukaku at 16/1 each?
Of course, there will be a number of talented players on show in Qatar this winter, but it will be very interesting to see how each of them manages to deal with the conditions that the country provides, even if we are in the thick of winter for most of us around the planet.
