Cristiano Ronaldo became the highest international goalscorer as he scored 109 goals for Portugal, equalling Ali Daei’s previous record. In the process, Ronaldo has scored 5 goals in Euro 2020 before being knocked out by Belgium in the Round of 16.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been leading the Euro 2020 Golden Boot race since the group stages. However, Czech Republic’s Patrik Schick has scored his fifth goal in their quarter-final loss against Denmark.
There was confusion about who is leading the Euro 2020 Golden Boot race or is it a tie between Ronaldo and Schick. The Bayern Leverkusen star was in elite form this tournament and had arguably also scored the Goal Of The Tournament.
However, it has now been cleared that Cristiano Ronaldo will be the outright winner of the Euro 2020 Golden Boot unless someone scores 6 goals.
This is because the goalscoring count rules for ties are decided first by assists and then by minutes played in the tournament.
Ronaldo has provided one assist at the Euro 2020, while Schick hasn’t got any assist, and both the players have been knocked out of the tournament, so there will be no more changes in their position. Moreover, Ronaldo has also scored his goals in a lesser time gap than the Czech Republic forward, which makes the Portuguese captain the sole winner of the Euro 2020 Golden Boot race until someone scores 6 goals, which seems very unlikely now.
