Earlier it was given to the player who scores highest number of goals. But after in some world cup more players start scoring highest goals & the award was given to more than a player. It was the world Cup of 1962 which was organized in Chile, when 6 players were awarded with Golden Boot.

So the governing body FIFA decided to change the rule. They decided that, if more than one player scores same number of goals then the player with maximum assists will be awarded with this award. If still this happens again, then the player played minimum number of games will be declared winner of Golden Boot.
