With four players currently tied in top spot in the race to be top scorer at this World Cup this evening’s Final in Johannesberg is the perfect showdown with three of tonight’s players still in with a chance of capturing the Golden Boot Award .
Wesley Sneijder , David Villa , Diego Forlan and Thomas Mueller are currently all tied on 5 goals each and Arjen Robben still has an outside chance with 2 goals so far .
Villa was pre tournament favourite and the worst possible result for the bookmakers . Conseqently his price to win the Golden Boot is now very short and the Barcelona hitman has been in terrific form and looks like scoring every time Spain attack .
He is top priced 5/6 to win the Golden Boot with Boylesports and considering that he has scored in forty three goals in sixty three games for Spain is still worth a punt even at odds on .
Better value however lies in the first scorer market and Villa is available at 4/1 with Blue Square to score the first goal of the 2010 World Cup Final . Villa has notched the first goal on four occasions in his last five matches and is easily Spain’s biggest threat .
Villa has simply looked outstanding for Spain and can finish from inside and outside of the box .
Villa to score and Spain to win could spoil what has generally been a very good World Cup for the bookmakers and please many punters and neutrals alike.
