The European Championship is not only a battle for the main trophy, which will be awarded to the best team of the tournament after winning the final. There will also be several individual awards at the tournament. One of the most prestigious is the Golden Boot. To get it, you need to win the championship's scorer's race.

At the moment there is no sole leader in the table of the best scorers: four players scored 3 goals each.

  • Cody Gakpo (Netherlands) - 3
  • Georges Mikautadze (Georgia) - 3
  • Jamal Musiala (Germany) - 3
  • Ivan Schranz (Slovakia) - 3

Mikautadze and Schranz have already left the tournament. Each player can play a maximum of three matches before the end of the Euros: it is necessary for his team to win games in the quarterfinals and semifinals, earning a place in the final.

According to bookmakers, the main contender for the Golden Boot of Euro 2024 is Cody Gakpo. On the forward of Liverpool and the national team of the Netherlands are taking bets at odds of 4.7.

Also among the contenders for the award are Jamal Musiala (Germany), Harry Kane (England), Kylian Mbappe (France) and Kai Havertz (Germany).

  • Jamal Musiala (Germany) - 7
  • Harry Kane (England) - 7.5
  • Kylian Mbappe (France) - 12
  • Kai Havertz (Germany) - 12

Note that this award is almost impossible to win early. Therefore, the intrigue in the battle for the Golden Boot will last until the last minutes of Euro 2024.

Earlier we reported that the European Top League announced the introduction of automatic offside detection system.
