The 2014 Brazilian Soccer World Cup is already coming to an end and the outlook with regard to those who can opt in this version of the tournament to the golden boot is already clear, and it is disputed by three players: James Rodríguez for Colombia, Müller for Germany and Messi for Argentina, although Van Persie and Robben also have the opportunity, both from Germany.
What happens if there is a draw in goals for the gold boot in the world cup
But what would happen if a double, or even a three-way tie occurs with respect to the goals scored? Well, no raffle is made, but three criteria have been established for the prize of the Adidas gold boot, also called the gold booty and, after the proper title of champion and runner-up, is one of the prizes most coveted by the players.
The criteria for awarding the prize are:
- Greater number of goals scored.
- Greater assists of goal.
- Greater number of minutes played.
Based on these criteria, the winner of the prize is established and, in the event there is a tie in item 1, the tiebreaker is passed through the other two criteria that virtually make it impossible for there to be a tie.
We’ll wait if maybe the gold booty stays on the South American continent with James Rodriguez or perhaps with Messie. Of course, this will depend on Müller not achieving more scores or that Robben or Van Persie are close to the 6 goals scored by the Colombian player.
