Who are the Golden Boot favourites ahead of the Euros?

 

Finally, after being delayed by a year due to the pandemic, football fans will be able to enjoy the European Championship tournament, which, despite being held in 2021 now, is still being called EURO 2020. That might be slightly confusing at first, but it is just a tiny hitch in the overall scheme of things, with anticipation building for the tournament, especially as it is now three years since the World Cup, and the major European sides have not been in competitive tournament action since then, as much as UEFA is trying very hard to make the Nations League relevant. The likes of France, England, Italy, Belgium and Spain are the early favourites, but it is quite interesting if we look at the odds for the Golden Boot winner i.e., the top scorer at the tournament. There are players from sides which may not necessarily be strong teams, but the individuals will definitely have a big claim to make for this award, especially if their teams do manage to put up a good showing. Various sites, such as Unibet reviewed by betting.co.uk, have slightly different odds, but we have gathered the overall favourites here, along with a discussion of their chances of nabbing the Golden Boot.

 

Harry Kane

 

England’s captain, talisman and one of the best strikers of his generation, Kane has already kicked up a bit of a fuss before the tournament has even started, with reports stating that he wants to leave Tottenham Hotspur to win the trophies that his talent deserves. While this is set to be a transfer saga that will run for the rest of the summer and possibly beyond, Kane will be focused on England, attempting to replicate his efforts from the 2018 World Cup where he won the Golden Boot. However, it must be remembered that the majority of his goals at that tournament were penalties, and both he and the rest of the England team will need to do much better from open play if they are to achieve their individual and team goals.

 

Romelu Lukaku

 

The 28-year-old is a newly crowned Serie A champion with Inter Milan, for whom he scored 30 goals in all competitions, and he is certainly one of the deadliest strikers in Europe at the moment. This seems like the last chance for Belgium’s Golden Generation to win a trophy, and having reached the semi-finals of the World Cup, they will want to go one better and at least make it to the final. Belgium were dominant in the qualifying campaign, with Lukaku in ominous form, and he is a good pick to back for the Golden Boot here as well.

 

Kylian Mbappe

 

The 2018 World Cup was the breakout tournament for Kylian Mbappe, as the then-teenager captivated audiences all around the world with his performances as France won the trophy. Three years down the line, he has continued to bang in the goals for Paris Saint-Germain on a regular basis, but is even more of a well-rounded player now while still possessing terrifying speed and calm finishing ability. Alongside the recalled Karim Benzema, Mbappe will be a handful for defenders throughout this tournament, and he could easily finish on top of the pile if France are able to make it out of a tough group.

 

Cristiano Ronaldo

 

The old horse still has some new tricks - Cristiano Ronaldo may be 36 years old and nearing the end of his career, but he is still the main man, and will soon become the only player to have appeared at five European Championships. He is also on course to break Ali Daei’s record for most international goals, with the Iranian just six goals ahead of Ronaldo at the moment, and it would be quite fitting if CR7 can get past the 109-goal mark for Portugal at this tournament while winning the Golden Boot, and potentially the tournament as well.
