We’ve been putting together the list of who has scored wearing what and we can now publish our results after the first set of group games, with every team having played once. There have been twenty goals scored so far in eight games, our infographic below shows the top five boots by goals.
Nike are dominating the boot scoring charts so far, with 60% of the goals scored by players wearing Nike boots, the rest of the goals have been more evenly spread out with adidas getting 15%, whilst Mizuno and Puma both have 10%. They’ll be plenty more goals to come and we’ll be back on Friday with another update. Stand-out boot is the Mercurial Vapor VIII which has 25% of the tournament’s goals alone so far.
There are three players who currently have two goals each in the race for the golden boot; Croatia’s Mario Mandžukić whose side beat Ireland 3-1, Russia’s Russia Alan Dzagoev who bagged twice in their 4-1 win over the Czech Republic and Andriy Shevchenko who got two for Ukraine to beat Sweden in the last match of the round.
