The World Cup may not be coming home this year, but the Golden Boot could be.

France vs Croatia: Key battles for World Cup final

Harry Kane is currently set to claim the award after scoring six goals in this years tournament.

In the second there are currently three players on four goals but they are all now out of the tournament and unable to catch up with him.

His nearest rivals are Antoinne Griezzman and Kylian Mbappe who have scored three goals each, but that means they would need to score a hat-trick in the final if they want to equal Harry Kanes tally.

There are other players in the final who have scored two goals so far, but they are unlikely to score four or more goals when France and Croatia clash later today.

The Golden Glove Award is given to the best goalkeeper of the tournament and the winner is decided through the FIFA Technical Study Group which is made up of a panel that analyses matches in international tournaments.

It is an award that is often given to a goalkeeper who has made it to the final stages of the tournament and the last three winners have played for the country that won the World Cup.

This would mean that Hugo Lloris of France and Croatias Danijel Subašić both have a good chance of claiming the Golden Glove award if their side wins the final.

Other favourites to collect the award would be Thibaut Courtois of Belgium who has had an outstanding tournament, as well as England Jordan Pickford who has been very impressive throughout the World Cup.

The last English goalkeeper to get the Golden Glove was Gordon Banks in 1966.
