Euro 2020 Golden Boot: Updated goals and assist standings game-by-game


Euro 2020 race for the Golden Boot: The updated top scorer and assists standings as Romelu Lukaku takes the early lead, while Harry Kane fails to net vs Croatia











Euro 2020 is now in full swing, after an impressive Italy strolled past Turkey in Friday’s opener, with England subsequently beating World Cup rivals Croatia in their first outing. 

Though the tournament has just started, the race for the prestigious Golden Boot award is already heating up, with Inter Milan star Romula Lukaku netting twice in Belgium’s 3-0 win over Russia on Sunday. 

England captain Harry Kane is among the favourites to add another Golden Boot to his ever-growing collection, having won his third Premier League award last season, while also claiming the title at the 2018 World Cup.

However, the prolific forward was unable to get on the score sheet in England’s 1-0 win over Croatia, with Raheem Sterling grabbing the only goal. 

There are a number of other candidates competing for the grand prize, with France duo Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema – who makes his return to international football – set to kick-off their tournament in a mouth-watering encounter against Germany on Tuesday. 

Serie A duo Ciro Immobile and Cristiano Ronaldo are also among the bookies’ favourites to compete for the prize, with the former grabbing a goal for Italy against Turkey.

Of course, with a number of matches remaining in the opening round of fixtures, and with three-and-a-half weeks of action to follow, nothing is yet decided.

Below, Sportsmail outlines the current favourites, as per Betfair, which are correct at the time of publication. 

Romelu Lukaku – 9/4

Harry Kane – 8/1
