Well, when you work your way through the decades of top goal-scorers in Italian football, you certainly see some of the world's great strikers (and even midfielders) listed.

Nordahl, Charles, Riva, Boninsegna, Rossi, Bettega, Platini, Maradona, van Basten, Vialli, Signori, Batistuta, Shevchenko, Totti, Del Piero, and Ibrahimovic, have all won it.

And even the great Goalhanger himself, Filippo Inzaghi, gets in on the golden-boot action by making the list for the 24 goals he poached for Atalanta back in the 1996-97 season.

Great goal-scorers, in a great league.
