The winner of the “Golden Boots” of Euro 2020, as the best scorer of the tournament, became Cristiano Ronaldo, who recorded 5 goals and one assist. The striker of the Czech national team Patrick Schick was satisfied with the “silver boot”. He also has 5 goals, but unlike Ronaldo, he has no assists.

France’s Karim Benzema, England’s Harry Kane, Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and Sweden’s Emile Forsberg have 4 goals each. Since Benzema has fewer minutes played than his competitors, it was he who won the “Bronze Boots”.

This was reported by the site UEFA.

The best assistant for Euro 2020 was the representative of Switzerland Stephen Zuber, who made 4 assists. And the most points on the system “goal + pass” knocked out Ronaldo – 6 (5 + 1).

Ronaldo, 36, became the oldest top scorer in the history of the European Championships. The previous record belonged to Michel Platini, who in 1984 scored nine goals at the age of 29 years and one month.
