Cristiano Ronaldo is on the cusp of winning his first continental goal scoring award having scored a brace against France last night to open a two gap lead in the Euro 2020 Golden Boot race while the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Ciro Immobile and Antoine Griezmann are among the leading contenders.

The Portugal captain became the leading scorer in European Championship history when a brace in their opening game against Hungary moved him two clear of Michel Platini on 11, and he bagged another goal in a 4-2 defeat to Germany.

Ronaldo then scored two penalties in a 2-2 draw with France to move alongside record-holder Ali Daei on 109 international goals and that tally now includes a combined 21 at European Championship [14] and World Cup [7] level – more than any other European player in history.

The 36-year-old has incredibly scored in five successive European Championships since his debut in 2004 and nine consecutive major tournaments having struck in each of his four World Cups, including four in 2018, but has yet to add an international Golden Boot to his astonishing CV.
