The Argentina striker played his way into the Golden Boot chart with two goals in the second round clash with Mexico.
Much like his coach Diego Maradona did in 1986, Tevez followed up a controversial goal with a brilliant one and the Manchester City forward will be confident of adding more to his tally.
Uruguay’s star player may have been overshadowed by his strike partner Luis Suarez in the 2-1 second round win over South Korea, but Forlan remains an outside contender for the Golden Boot.
With 12 World Cup goals over three tournaments to his name, you know that the German striker has the pedigree to win his second Golden Boot.
Klose took advantage of England’s sloppy defending in Germany’s second round game and will be hoping that Argentina’s suspect defense proves just as generous.
Another German with World Cup pedigree, the 2006 Young Player of the Tournament should have three total goals to his name.
However, a missed penalty in Germany’s group stage defeat to Serbia cost his team a draw.
After scoring twice in Brazil’s opening two games, Elano was injured towards the end of the win over Ivory Coast.
The player is unlikely to feature in Brazil’s quarterfinal clash with Holland, so his chances of a late run at the Golden Boot are slim.
