Belgian Golden Boot Award, summary of contenders!
On Wednesday night 16th of January a mixture of journalists and former winners of the Golden Boot in Belgium will choose the best player of the year 2018 in Belgium. It is important to know, there are two voting rounds, one in June for the period of January until June and one in December, for the period August until December. Only players that play in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League can get a vote. Former winners of the Belgian Golden Boot are Sergio Conçeiçao, Marc Degryse, Gilles De Bilde, Paul Van Himst, Johan Boskamp, Michel Preud'homme, Jan Koller, Dennis Praet, Ruud Vormer, Timmy Simons, Wesley Sonck, Axel Witsel, Vincent Kompany, etc... The Racing Genk armada 3 names of the current leader in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League are serious contenders. Then especially for the second period of the year. In which they free wheeled through the competition and the Europa League. Alejandro Pozuelo The Spanish magician of Racing Genk, quick feet, and even a quicker mind, sees passes before anyone could have thought of them. Scores easily, and makes Racing Genk play with dept and vista. Is everywhere on the feeld, although he lacks a bit of speed, he still has an immense radius. Roeslan Malinovski The metronome of Racing Genk. Was already performing magnificent in the beginning of 2018 and really deployed his power, speed and destructional shots in the first round of the current season. Because of his overall performance in 2018, maybe the strongest contender of Racing Genk. Leandro Trossard The winger/striker of Racing Genk with the best right foot of the Jupiler Pro League. He can score out of nothing, and did so in as well The Jupiler Pro League as the Europa League. He has 9 goals in the current season, and a whopping 7 goals in 9 games in the Europa League. It's a shame he was injured in the beginning of the year, so he will probably come short because of the lack of votes in the first round. The other contenders Hans Vanaken - Club Brugge Despite his height, this player can do magic with the ball at his feet. He was the leading figure in the title for Club Brugge for the 2017/2018 season. And he pulled through in the end of the year with a solid performance in the Champions League with 2 goals. And a whopping 7 goals and 12 assists in the first period of the 2018/2019 season of the Jupiler Pro League. The biggest contender for the win of the Golden Boot 2019. Other possible contenders are, but less likely: Wesley Moraes - Club Brugge Mehdi Carcela - Standard Liege Tomorrow night is the big night, I will sure inform you about who won and the other winners: Best Goalkeeper, Best Female player, Best Coach, Young player of the year and Best Belgian abroad!

’It’s a big achievement’ -Kane expresses his pride at winning the WC Golden Boot
Harry Kane has expressed his pride at winning the Golden Boot. The England striker’s tally of six goals was enough to be the tournament’s top scorer and follow in the footsteps of Gary Lineker who won the award in 1986. ‘It’s been a fantastic campaign, for me personally and the team. It’s something I’m very proud of. ‘But there’s still stuff I can improve on. I can get better. I feel like there have been games in this tournament when I could have done better, but that’s all part of the learning curve. ‘It’s a big achievement. Not many people get to say they’ve won a Golden Boot at a World Cup. I said coming into this tournament that I wanted to prove I could do it on these stages. 'I said the Euros (in 2016) were disappointing. If anything I wanted to prove to myself I could score at this level. I’ve scored at every other level and it was important I did that. ‘I’m extremely proud and I’m sure I’ll look back in a few weeks’ time and take all these experiences in.’ Kane will cut his summer break short by two weeks to ensure he is available for Tottenham’s Premier League opener against Newcastle on August 11. Players usually have four weeks off after finishing international duty before returning to their clubs. ‘I will hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully try and score in August this year,’ he said. ‘I want to be playing in four weeks’ time. We’ll have to talk to the gaffer at Spurs.’ England defender John Stones also said he intends to report back to Manchester City earlier than expected.
