Everton striker Yakubu dreaming of World Cup golden boot

Everton striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni is positive that the 2010 World Cup will see an abundance of goals scored.

The Nigerian attacker says that all the teams and players have gotten better since Germany 2006, where there plenty of goals, and is hoping that this year provides more of the same.

He also plans to get in on the act himself.

"It is unbelievable when you hear how many goals were scored (at the last World Cup) but I think there will be more this summer because every country and every player has improved," said Yakubu.

"I would love to be the top scorer! For me as a striker I want to score goals in a World Cup."
