England hitman Harry Kane won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup and he leads the market to finish Euro 2020 as the top goalscorer.

Five players shared the honour of being the top scorer at the inaugural European Championships in 1960, Milan Galin, Francois Heutte, Valentin Ivanov, Drazan Jerkovic and Viktor Ponedelnik each netted twice.

The first-ever edition of the competition was played out over four days and each of those players only featured twice.

The concept of the Championships has come a long way in the meantime and will go between June 11 and July 11 this summer, with matches being played across 11 cities.

England’s Leading Man Hoping To Top the Charts

Gareth Southgate has some big calls to make when selecting his 26-man squad for this summer’s showpiece event.

The England boss is expected to announce his travelling part on the week beginning May 23 and several players face an anxious wait.

Kane, however, can rest easy knowing that he will be part of the set up as long as he avoids injury in the final weeks of the Premier League season.

The 27-year-old has netted 34 times in 53 appearances for England and he is set to captain the Three Lions at the rescheduled tournament.

He hit six of those goals at the 2018 World Cup as England made it through to the semi-finals and will be key to the nation’s hopes of going all the way this summer.

It’s no surprise to see Kane priced as the 6/1 favourite to win the Golden Boot and he should benefit from playing two of the three group matches at Wembley.

Lukaku Hoping To Lead Belgium to Glory

Romelu Lukaku has fired Inter Milan to their first Serie A title since 2009-10 this season. notching 21 times.

Belgium are expected to be among the contenders to win the competition, having reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, while they made it through to the last-eight at Euro 2016.

Lukaku, who can be backed at 15/2 to end the Euros as the highest scorer, struck twice at the previous edition and he found the back of the net four times at the 2018 World Cup.

He will be 28 when the competition gets underway and appears to be in the prime of his career, having scored 38 times for club and country in 2020-21.

French Duo Worthy of Consideration

France are the 5/1 joint-favourites to follow up their World Cup success with another title-winning run at the European Championships.

They suffered heartbreak in 2016 on home soil when losing the final to Portugal and appear to have only improved further over the following five years.

Kylian Mbappe, 8/1 to be top goalscorer, wasn’t a senior international at the previous Euros but he was key in helping them over the line at the World Cup, netting four times.

Griezmann topped the standings for most goals at Euro 2016 and he chipped in with four at the World Cup.

The Barcelona forward is 18/1 to finish Euro 2020 as the top scorer and he looks well worth a punt at that price.
