Portugal’s forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Euro 2020 Golden Boot with five goals and an assist from the tournament.
He finished as top scorer of the tournament with five goals and an assist from 391 minutes of action.
As a result, the Portugal international has added another individual accolade to his shiny trophy cabinet despite being knocked out in the round of 16.
Ronaldo scored twice from the spot late in the game during Portugal’s 3-0 win against Hungary in their tournament opener. His double allowed him to overtake Michel Platini’s long-standing record of 9 European Championship goals.
He then added a sublime effort in the 4-2 loss against Germany, where he rolled back the years by sprinting the length of the pitch to round off a rapid counter-attack.
He then added another two penalties in Portugal’s enthralling 2-2 draw against France in their final group game.
His two goals against France took his international total for Portugal to 109, matching the world-record mark set by former Iran forward, Ali Daei.
After Ronaldo and Schick at five goals apiece, four players finished on four goals, they are: Harry Kane, Karim Benzema, Emil Forsberg and Romelu Lukaku.
Ronaldo played in only four games – 360 minutes – at Euro 2020, compared to the likes of final participants Kane and Raheem Sterling, who each played over 600 minutes.
This is Ronaldo’s first Golden Boot honour, as he came in second place in 2016 when Portugal won the competition.
