2022 FIFA World Cup: Top Leading Goal Scorers as the Semifinals Round Approaches

Only 4 of the 32 teams that began the renowned World Cup tournament remain, and it is now getting close to its conclusion. Numerous predictions have been made regarding the potential champions, but for the time being, let's concentrate on the players who make the difference in the games—the goal scorers. The competition is without a doubt plenty of goal scorers, therefore it would be wise to focus on the best of them. 

5. Alvaro Morata.

He represents both the Spanish club Atletico Madrid and the Spanish national team. Before Spain was eliminated by Morocco in the World Cup, he scored three goals. His first goal came in Spain's 7-0 victory over Costa Rica.

4. Gonzalo Ramos.

He is a member of the Portuguese national team, and in the World Cup competition, he scored three goals (all against Switzerland), which was recognized as the first hat trick of the 2022 World Cup. They were eliminated later in the quarterfinal round by Morocco, a powerhouse in Africa. 

3. Olivier Giroud.

He represents the French national team as well as the Italian club AC Milan. He has four goals at the World Cup—a brace against Australia, a goal against Poland, and the game-winning goal against England in the quarterfinals in the 78th minute.

2. Lionel Messi.

He competes for the Argentine national team as well as the French club Paris Saint-Germain. His four goals—one each against Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Australia, and the Netherlands—have helped Argentina advance to the World Cup semifinals in impressive fashion. 

1. Kylian Mbappe.

The wonder kid from the previous World Cup competition is repeating himself this time around, scoring goals and potentially leading France to back-to-back championship hauls for the first time since 1990. In this World Cup tournament, he has scored five goals for France, including goals against Australia, Denmark, and Poland. He also scored a brace against the Danes.
