8. Just Fontaine
The fourth-highest goalscorer in World Cup history, Just Fontaine has the record for most goals scored in a single tournament with a wild 13. The Moroccan-born French international only played in one tournament, back in 1958, but that was enough to make an impact on the biggest stage in football. Striking up a partnership with Raymond Kopa, he was devastating.
Bizarrely, he still didn’t make it into the team of the tournament because of a weird voting system. It’s going to take something special to break that outrageous scoring record though.
