The Golden Boot or Golden Shoe Award is granted to the top goalscorer of the FIFA World Cup. The first time an award was given was in 1982, under the name Golden Shoe. In this World Cup, both runners-up had the same number of assists, and each received the Silver Shoe.

Eight players had scored three goals. Ronaldo, Crespo and Zinedine Zidane had also one assist. The two recipients were determined by less playtime (308 minutes for Crespo, 411 for Ronaldo, 559 for Zidane).

9 coaches from the Czechoslovakia participated until the 1990 World Cup. 5 coaches were from Czech Republic and 4 from Slovakia. For the purpose of statistics, we will consider them in this way (Czech Republic: 5, Slovakia: 4) since the 2006 World Cup.
 
For 11 years, Yugoslavia was known as the FR Yugoslavia national football team when Serbia and Montenegro were called the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The name of the country was changed to Serbia and Montenegro in February 2003
