Before the semi-finals of the Euro, several players are still in the race to try to dislodge Crisitano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick, tied with 5 goals, in the ranking of the top scorers of the competition.
For whom the Golden Shoe of this Euro 2021? With three games to go to the end of the tournament, everything remains open. For the moment, it is Cristiano Ronaldo who dominates this ranking with 5 units, including 3 penalties. The amazing Czech Patrik Schick is tied, but due to a lower number of assists (none against one for the Portuguese), he can no longer be crowned top scorer, after the elimination of his team in the quarter-finals . The Bayer Leverkusen striker may console himself with a tournament goal trophy, following his 45-meter wonder against Scotland.
Three players are at 4 goals but all have been taken out of the competition: Lukaku, Forsberg and Benzema. To succeed Antoine Griezmann, winner in 2016 with 6 goals, three players remain on the lookout with three achievements scored since the start of this Euro.
Author of two goals for his team during the group stage before scoring against Germany, Raheem Sterling is therefore sixth in this ranking tied with other elements still in the race. Starting with his teammate Harry Kane, who finally unlocked his counter against Germany, before signing a brace against Ukraine. In the England-Denmark semi-final, a third man could get closer to Ronaldo and Schick: Kasper Dolberg. The Niçois had distinguished himself in the round of 16 with a double against Wales before scoring the break goal in the quarterfinals against the Czechs.
