1. Harry Kane

Harry Kane

That Harry Kane can score for England he showed once again during the World Cup qualifiers. The Tottenham Hotspur striker scored 12 goals in eight matches. Only Memphis Depay could match that number; the two together top the list of top scorers of World Cup qualification. At the last World Cup in Russia in 2018, Kane scored six goals in six games. As a result, he became top scorer of the World Cup and won the Golden Shoe. In total, Kane played 73 internationals in which he scored 50 goals. Those are nice figures, which also make him the favourite to become top scorer at the 2022 World Cup.

2. Kylian Mbappé

At the last World Cup, Kylian Mbappé showed the world what he is made of. With his quick runs and effectiveness, he scored four goals in his first World Cup. The Paris Saint-Germain striker helped France on their way to the world title with two important goals against Argentina and a goal in the final against Croatia. In total, he scored 27 times in 57 international matches and we expect him to score the necessary goals at the upcoming World Cup too. In our eyes, France have a better team than England, which makes it likely that they will advance AND Mbappé will score more. The odd of 9.00 is therefore very attractive!

3. Karim Benzema

France can field a lethal striker duo, as they have Karim Benzema at their disposal in addition to Mbappé. The Real Madrid striker showed his worth again last season, including two decisive goals against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. For the French team, he scored a total of 37 times in 97 games. Not bad figures, but not an average that makes us jump backwards either.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo

It takes some getting used to the new reality, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are not the favourites top scorers for the 2022 World Cup. At the last World Cup, Ronaldo still finished second along with Romelu Lukaku by scoring four times. Last season, Ronaldo scored a nice number of goals at Manchester United (18 goals) and he also showed himself regularly during World Cup qualification, scoring six goals for Portugal. Can CR7 take his country to great heights and claim a leading role as top scorer of the 2022 World Cup?

Lionel Messi

The same question applies to Lionel Messi as Ronaldo: can he bring out the motivation and strength to show himself to the world one more time? At what may be his last World Cup, Messi has one advantage over the Portuguese; Argentina are one of the World Cup favourites and will be in the tournament for a long time. So more chances for Messi to score. With a squad full of top strikers such as Paulo Dybala, Ángel di Maria and Lautaro Martínez, he has good colleagues around him, but to become top scorer of the World Cup he will have to claim all the attention. Betting on Messi as top scorer of the World Cup yields 15.00 times your stake.

Top scorers World Cup qualification 2022

Memphis Depay and Harry Kane have shown themselves during the World Cup qualifiers. On behalf of the Netherlands or England, these strikers both scored 12 times and can therefore call themselves the top scorers of the 2022 World Cup Qualifier. Of course, it does not mean one for one that they will also score many goals at the World Cup, but it is certainly proof that these strikers are in form and can score for their country. Harry Kane is also favourite for top scorer World Cup 2022 and therefore has a lower odd (5.00). Expectations on Memphis Depay are lower, resulting in an odd of 26.00. However, the Dutchman has scored as much as Kane and could therefore be a surprising outsider for the top scorer title before the World Cup.
