Euro 2020 topscorers – Who is leading the race for the Golden Boot?


Cristiano Ronaldo is the all-time highest goalscorer in Euros…

Despite crashing out of the Euro 2020 after losing to Belgium 1-0 in the round of 16, Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, with five goals in three matches, is at the summit of the goalscorers list.

The Juventus talisman touched Iranian forward Ali Daei’s record of 109 international goals with a brace against France in Portugal’s final group stage match on June 24.

Other than Ronaldo, players like Romelu Lukaku, Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski also feature in this list. Unfortunately, Lewandowski will not get a chance to increase his tally as Poland have been eliminated from the group stage.

Denmark are the highest scoring team in the Euro so far with nine goals in four matches. They are followed by Italy (9), Netherlands (8) and Belgium (8).
