From Golden Boot to Golden Beard: Harry Kane wins Beard of the World Cup vote

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that while it looks like England football captain Harry Kane will win the Golden Boot in the 2018 World Cup he has already received one important honour. He has been voted ‘Beard of the World Cup’ in a public poll that ran throughout the competition.

Harry Kane ended up with 45% of the popular vote. Second was Australian captain Mile Jedinak who got 26% and Olivier Giroud of France who will be in Sunday’s final was third with 12%.

The voting criteria were based on a mixture of how impressive a player’s beard was combined with the impact it made on the pitch

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, of course beard wise Harry Kane’s facial hair is not as striking as that of Mile Jedinak. However as the likely winner of the Golden Boot the impact of his beard on the pitch was greater. He is a true representative of English footballing beard power.
