In most World Cups, scoring 5 or 6 goals would be enough to secure the golden boot, but it wouldn’t be enough in the 1958 edition. In his first, and what would be his only, World Cup, Just Fontaine smashed all kinds of goal scoring records, smashing an impressive 13 goals en route to France’s third place finish.
The highest goals scored in World Cups stands at 16. Fontaine managed 13 in only one edition. As of now, the Frenchman is fourth in the list of goals at the World Cup, but the record for goals scored in a single edition will likely always be his.
