2. Romelu Lukaku (Belgium) - 4 goals<br /> The Belgian centre-forward had become the first player to score back-to-back braces in a World Cup game since Maradona. His 4 goals came against Panama and Tunisia. While he didn't score against Japan in the round of 16, he could find his chances against Brazil in the quarterfinals. (Image: Reuters)

3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) - 4 goals<br /> Let's face it. Ronaldo is super-human. His goal from a free kick against Spain shows how he can calmly get the job done in a high pressure situation. But he is now out of the running for the prize, after Uruguay knocked Portugal out of the World Cup. (Image: Reuters)

4. Denis Cheryshev (Russia) - 3 goals<br /> The Russian winger has been something of a surprise. He opened this World Cup's first goal. But interestingly, he only got to play after Dzagoev had to go off due to an injury. (Image: Reuters)

5. Kylian Mbappe (France) - 3 goals<br /> The French teenager is on fire at the moment. His lightening pace, quick feet and eye for goal have seen him grab 3 goals at the World Cup. And he is just 19 years old. His brace against Argentina was particularly memorable, as France sent the South American side crashing out of the tournament. (Image: Reuters)

6. Edinson Cavani (Uruguay) - 3 goals<br /> Cavani and Suarez finally clicked for Uruguay in this tournament, and El Matador has greatly benefited from it. He bagged a goal during the group stages, but his best performance was against Portugal in the knockout round when he fired in two goals to take his side through to the quarterfinals.
