The France legend who set the bar for Kane at the World Cup

first_imgIt was just the 13 goals in one World Cup for Moroccan-born Fontaine, who rather unjustly didn’t win the player of the tournament award in 1958.In Sweden he scored in every game he played, including four against defending champions West Germany in a 6-3 win in Gothenburg to decide who came third.Overall, France scored 23 goals in six games, yet still lost two of them.Their defence must have been absolute merde.Miroslav Klose, meanwhile, has scored more goals overall at the World Cup with 16 across four tournaments. 2 Lineker is England’s top scoring player at the World Cup and won the Golden Boot with six goals in 1986, while he has ten overall.And Kane would love to be collecting another individual award, this time in England colours, having won two Premier League Golden Boots already.“I said before obviously as a striker that’s always an aim but I’ve said as well the most important thing is that we’re winning games,” he said following his hat-trick against Panama.“As long as the goals are helping the team win, that’s the most important thing and that’s a great performance.”However, Kane has some way to go to reach the tournament’s greatest ever haul. That title belongs to Just Fontaine.
