Best Answer

In the 1958 World Cup the Moroccan born French striker Just Fontaine scored 13 goals for France which is the most by a player in a singe tournament.

However, four of Fontaine's 13 goals came in the 3rd place play-off match against West Germany. Some consider that goals in these games should not count as there is nothing to play for and generally the matches are disproportionately high scoring.

Excluding 3rd place play-off matches the top scorer in a single World Cup would be Sandor Kocsis of Hungary who scored 11 goals in the 1954 tournament as Hungary reached the final.
