Ahead of the delayed 2020 European Championships, we are taking a look at which players are favoured to bag a bunch of goals and take home the Golden Boot. We’ll talk you through the four most fancied frontmen and also tell you who we’ll be putting our real money pokies winnings on to be the most prolific goal scorer at the upcoming tournament.
The England and Tottenham striker has been fine form all season despite his club side being out of sorts. Kane bagged 23 goals to edge out Mohammed Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot. The bookmakers are backing him to continue his impressive goalscoring form to become the top goal scorer at the upcoming European Championships, with odds of 6/1 the best you will find on Kane proving them right. Kane has the chance to win the Golden Boot at successive international tournaments after the Englishman scored six times at the 2018 World Cup to claim the prize. With games against Scotland and Czech Republic awaiting in Group D, Kane will surely fancy himself to start the tournament with at least a few goals.
Romelu Lukaku of Belgium and Inter Milan is next up in our list of frontrunners for the Euro 2020 Golden Boot. The 28-year-old has been prolific since moving to Italy in 2019, netting on 47 occasions in Serie A. Lukaku’s 24 goals during the last season catapulted Inter to the league title and ended the long run of Juventus dominance in Italy. During the 2018 World Cup Lukaku’s four goals and one assist helped Belgium to a third-place finish. At odds of 7/1 to win the Euro 2020 Golden Boot he may well be worth betting on.
One of the brightest young stars in football sits at #3 on our list of Euro 2020 Golden Boot frontrunners. Kylian Mbappe has wowed crowds since he was just a teenager but now, at 22-years-old he seems ready to prove himself as one of the best players in world football. The PSG forward will have the power of the almighty French national side behind him – the favourites to win the whole tournament. If they make good on their favoruites tag, you’d imagine Mbappe will be the man scoring all goals that help them lift the trophy. That’s why he’s our pick for the Euro 2020 Golden Boot and we’ll be backing him at odds of 9/1, hopefully, we’ll even more money backing Mbappe than we did at online casino usa.
Of course, one of the greatest players of all time is on our list of frontrunners for the Euro 2020 Golden Boot. Cristiano Ronaldo scored three goals, including one in the semi-finals to help Portugal win this tournament in 2016. Juventus may not have been in good form this season, but Ronaldo hasn’t dipped one bit. The 36-year-old trounced the Serie A Golden Boot race with 29 goals, five ahead of his nearest rival. If Portugal are to enjoy a successful defence of their title of European Champions, you can be sure Ronaldo will be at the forefront and his goals will be pivotal to their winning performances. If you fancy Ronaldo to continue his goalscoring exploits on the International stage you can back him to win the Euro 2020 Golden Boot at odds of up to 14/1.
While these four players are considered the best bets to take home the top scorer prize it really is wide open. Karim Benzema, Antonine Griezmann, Robert Lewandowski and Ciro Immobile are just some of the prolific attackers who are not considered among the favourites but are still very capable of causing an upset by taking home the coveted Euro 2020 Golden Boot.
Who do you think will be the most prolific goal scorer at Euro 2020?
