Race for Golden Boot!

With the season drawing to a close and not many games
due to be played, we take a look at the contenders for the Golden Boot!

Lionel Messi
As most would expect, the worlds best player has been the star performer this year. With 26 appearances and a amazing 29 goals the Argentine has helped Scott McKenzie to a very impressive 46 games unbeaten and look to have secured the divison one title. Messi has been voted man of the match and incredible 22 times in the 26 appearances he has made.

Gonzalo Higuain 

Gonzalo Higuain has played in 30 of Napoli’s 32 league games this season so just how important he has been to Rob Ryan’s promotion push. With an impressive 22 goals this season he has been the main reason why the Italian outfit will more than likely be playing divison 1 football next season and testing himself against the best players.

Troy Deeney

Someone I’m sure wouldn’t had thought would be in contention for a chance of the golden boot at the start of the season. Troy doesn’t have the same ability as Messi and Higuain but take nothing away from the lad, he’s been prolific this season. He’s started I’m all 32 games for divison 5 outfit Feyenoord this season which has shown how much faith Zaid Griffin has shown him and boy has he paid it out. With 20 goals and leading the goal scoring charts by an impressive 5 goals! Zaid will hope a Deeney can help bring the title to Holland
