Are you an idiot? The golden boot is just given to the person with the most goals. It's purely based on statistic.

The golden ball is the one given to the best players

Given that he scored the most goals, and the Golden Boot is given to the player who scores the most goals....... probably yes?

Probably not considering he got half his goals from taking penalties and one of his goals was a deflection...

Lol there isn’t a question over whether he “deserves” it. He scored the most goals. He has full claim to it.

Stupid question, the golden boot isn’t an arbitrary award.

The rules were known beforehand. As above it is just a statistic, so yes he deserves it as he had the most goals.

NSIS

It's given to the overall top scoring player in any team... not just Engerland.

Scoring penalties at a World Cup arguably is harder than in open play.

Ridiculous. A goal is a goal.

This. There is an argument that the shots where you have a load of time are more difficult than instinctive ones as there is plenty of time to make the wrong decision or overthink it and mess it up. Anybody who has played the game will know this. Especially with a penalty and that's before you consider the additional pressure involved in the World Cup. Messi and Ronaldo both failed to score a penalty in this World Cup so even the best players fail there.

No chance. 76% of penalties were scored in this world cup.

Whereas other shots... (can't find any stats from the world cup but it'll be similar)

Depends where the shot is from. Note that he did say arguably.

Scoring 3/3 penalties as well as the one in penalty shootout is not an easy feat. His two goals against Tunisia were good, that header is not an easy one. Sure he got lucky in deflection but I wouldn't be surprised if most golden Boot recipients had some lucky goals...
