Cristiano Ronaldo scored 5 goals in Euro 2020 before bowing out in the Round of 16 against Belgium. Despite being knocked out in the Round of 16, he has shown he is still the deadliest goalscorer in Europe as no other player has been able to surpass him.
Czech Republic’s Patrik Schick came close to him as he also scored five goals but the Euro 2020 Golden Boot has been officially awarded to the Portugal captain.
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. 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.
Despite being 36-year-old, the leading international goalscorer is showing no signs of stopping and is still the best in his business. He will surely take another shot at international glory in the 2022 FIFA World Cup next year.
Here’s the list of the Top 5 goalscorers in the EURO 2020 tournament:
|2||Patrik Schick||Czech Republic||5||0|
