2019 Women’s World Cup Golden Boot Contenders

There is some absolutely amazing goal scoring talent showing up at the Women’s World Cup 2019. There are legendary players like Brazil’s Marta, USA’s Carli Lloyd and Canada’s Christine Sinclair back for more. Sinclair interestingly needs four goals to become the all-time leading scorer in women’s international football.

But there are plenty of youngster stars who will be looking to walk away with the Golden Boot at the 2019 Women’s World Cup, exciting youngsters like Vivianne Miedema and Sam Kerr.

However, with a five-goal haul in the USA’s opening 13-0 win over Thailand, it is America’s Alex Morgan who had moved from 6/1 to 4/11 odds-on favourite* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)

Previous Golden Boot Winners

For years ago in Canada, it was Germany’s Celia Sasic and American legend Carli Lloyd who shared the Golden Boot honour of being the top goalscorer at the tournament. Sasic actually got the Golden Boot because of playing less minutes than Lloyd did at the tournament. They each netted six goals during their respective campaigns. It’s telling that the top three scorers at the tournament came from teams who had made it to the semi-finals.

Nikita Parris Top Goalscorer

Alex Morgan – 4/11 odds

* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)

Alex Morgan is one of the most recognizable names and faces in Women’s football. The USA superstar has some amazing years under her belt. The 29-year-old scored 18 goals in 19 appearances for her country in 2018. Things have slowed up a little bit in the 2019 calendar year though with just three in ten games.

Morgan got just the one at the SheBelieves Cup earlier this year. Even though it’s been a quiet year from her, she scored in back to back friendlies against Australia and Belgium in April. She will be the focal point of USA’s attack, even though her teammate Carli Lloyd is still going strong.

With the USA hammering Thailand in their opening game of the tournament, Morgan chipping in with five, that’s a massive start from her and it is going to take something special to catch her now.

Eugenie Le Sommer – 10/1 odds

* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)

France’s Eugenie Le Sommer is one of the most accomplished finishers in the game at the moment. She is part of the Lyon elite, having helping the club dominate Europe for the last four years. She has a goal scoring record of 74 goals in 159 appearances for France ahead of the 2019 World Cup.

She is just so consistent having scored 21 goals in 28 appearances for the club this season. That’s actually her second lowest tally in her eight seasons with the club. Capable of playing as an outright striker or as a false number nine. She’ll be at the heart of a lot of France’s main attacking threats.

Valerie Gauvin – 33/1 odds

* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)

Gauvin is the next generation of French strikers. The 22-year-old has the world at her feet and could be the next big thing. She has scored 9 goals in 17 appearances for her country and has shown up well in her appearances in 2019. If she gets the playing time, which she should, she will get the goals, which she probably will. This is her first World Cup though and that will bring its own pressures. But in what looks to be an easy group stage for the French, she may get her chance to shine.

Carli Lloyd – 40/1 odds

* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)

Lloyd scored her 108th goal for the USA in mid-May during a friendly victory over South Africa in California. She had come on in the 60th minute to replace Alex Morgan. That was just her third international goal for the calendar year. This is a player who has done it all. She fired off a rapid first-half hat trick in the 2015 World Cup Final against Japan.

She is 36 years old now so this may well be her last World Cup campaign. It will be interesting to see if she shares duties with Morgan or will they be playing together? With the USA joint-favourites for the tournament, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Lloyd among the goals.

Sam Kerr – 12/1 odds

* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)

Australia’s Kerr is unequivocally, one of the best strikers in the game at the moment. The Matildas have a real asset in her. Strangely though this will be third World Cup and she has yet to bag a goal. She’s only 25 though and is really peaking in her career at the moment. Just in 2018, she was picked as the Young Australian of the Year.

She plays in the MLS for the Chicago Red Stars where she has scored 18 goals in 22 appearances for the club. Her tally for the Matildas up until the end of May 2019 was 31 goals in 76 appearances. If Australia can create the chances for her, she will take them. She should be one of the stars of the entire show at France 2019 and if the goals come from Kerr, then Australia looks a fantastic dark horse at the tournament.

Other contenders

The Netherlands pulled off a huge shock two summers ago when they went out at won the European Championships. At the heart of their entertaining and thrilling run was Arsenal’s Vivianne Miedema. Her strike record at the international level is 57 goals in 74 games and she just had a stunning record-breaking season for Arsenal in the Super League this season. Miedema scored 29 goals in league and cup for them this season. She was the top scorer in 2015 World Cup qualification. Can she do it at the 2019 World Cup at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)? Two years later she was scoring two goals in the final of the European Championships. A star, but how far can she carry the Netherlands?

Germany’s Alexandra Popp exudes quiet class. She has the star quality that should help Die Nationalelf make a deep run at this year’s competition as well. Her tally of international goals is 45 in 95 appearances. It is just a bit of a shame that for such a great player the top club and international honours have eluded her. There’s still time for the 28-year-old though and she’ll be carrying the can for the Germans.

England forward Nikita Parris is making the switch from Man City to Lyon for next season. She departs Man City with a record of 33 goals in 59 appearances for them. The Merseysider will be hoping to use her speed to get among the goals at the World Cup. She has 12 goals in 33 appearances for England and still feels like it is the start of a long career to come for her. She is going to carry the weight of the Lionesses’ goalscoring hopes on her shoulders and is 25/1 to top score at the tournament* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm).

Lieke Martens has the record of being the first ever goal for the Netherlands in a World Cup fixture. That was four years ago in Canada. Although she players deeper than her countrywoman Miedema, she has had a wonderful career. The 26-year-old has scored 42 goals in 102 internationals for the Netherlands, and three of those were in the successful Euro 2017 campaign.

Then how about Canada’s 35-year-old Christine Sinclair at 50/1 odds* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)? She keeps going and is the heart of the Canadian challenge. She’s still in hot goalscoring form (4 in seven games in 2019) and will take the penalties for the Canucks. This will be her fifth World Cup having scored in each of the previous four.

Women’s World Cup 2019 Top Goalscorer Predictions

Before the start of the tournament there was one player that stood out above the rest for us. That is France’s Eugenie Le Sommer. The French are really blessed with some outstanding world class players hitting their peak at the moment. At 30 Le Sommer is right there.

Our other tip to push close to the Golden Boot is Vivianne Miedema. She is such an electrifying player, full of coins in front of goal and could really shine on the big stage. The question will be whether the Netherlands can get deep enough into the tournament with her.

But now Alex Morgan is leading the way and in one game has score just one fewer than the winner of the Golden Boot four years ago managed. She looks set for a big record breaking campaign and she pretty much just locked up this market at 4/11 odds-on favourite* (betting odds taken from Betfair on May 30th, 2019 at 11:13 pm)
