World Cup 2010 Predictions: Place Your Bets for Top Goal Scorer

The World Cup kicks off in South Africa on Friday, and apart from the eventual winners, one other man will take home a golden trophy on July 11. Some unlikely names have lifted this trophy, as finding a rich vein of form at just the right moment—or an easy opponent in the group stage—can prove to be enough to etch an unexpected name into history.

From Just Fontaine's amazing 13-goal haul at the 1958 edition, through Toto Schillachi's eye-bulging arrival in the public imagination, to Ronaldo's redemption in Japan and Korea, these men always capture fame and glory, if only for a brief spell.

The following slideshow is a run-down of the favorites, the outsiders, and hopefully, somewhere among these names will be the one who emerges as the goal-scoring hero of 2010 and South Africa.
