1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal/Juventus)
Portugal was eliminated from Euro 2020 but Cristiano Ronaldo still has a chance to finish up the tournament with a piece of individual silverware to take home. Ronaldo is leading the goal-scoring charts with five goals at the end of the round of 16, one more than his closest rivals as the Euros head into the quarterfinal stage.
2. Patrik Schick (Czech Republic/Bayer Leverkusen)
Euro 2020’s breakout star Patrik Schick is in pole position for a top-scorer award should he maintain his formidable goal-scoring form. He scored twice in Czech Republic’s Group D opener against Scotland — the second goal being a strong goal-of-the-tournament contender from all of 50 yards.
3. Raheem Sterling (England/Manchester City)
Gareth Southgate’s side had a slow start to the tournament with Southgate being criticized for a lack of attacking prowess being used in the lineup. However, Sterling’s goals propelled England through to the round of 16. A few more goals in the next rounds might see him taking home the Golden Boot.
4. Romelu Lukaku (Belgium/Inter Milan)
The striker has shone with three goals, a total that he’s certain to add to as the tournament goes on if the Red Devils fulfill their expectations as the No.1 ranked side in the world.
