The European Golden Boot/Shoe is another prestigious award given to Europe’s top scorer. It was a football boot sculpture, and it was known as “Soulier d’Or” in French, which translates to “golden boot” since its inception in 1967-68; the award has been handed out by the French magazine L’Équipe. And Lionel Messi holds the record for the most golden boots (6) in the award’s history.

Between 1968 and 1991, Eusébio, Gerd Müller, Dudu Georgescu, and Fernando Gomes occupied the award, each winning it twice. Later that year, the Cyprus FA complained to L’Equipe about why their players were not awarded the Golden Boot after scoring 40 goals.

Until 1996-97, players were awarded based on points even if they scored fewer goals than a player in a lower league. And there have been numerous instances where two players have scored the same number of goals. As a result, FIFA would award the player who has played the fewest minutes. If there is a tie in points, the number of assists and the number of penalties scored are also counted. Only if the tie continues will the award be shared.
