Cristiano Ronaldo leads the way alongside Michael Platini with 9 goals making them joing all-time top scorers in UEFA Euro championships. However Platini scored 9 goals in only 5 matches back in 1984 tournament. Ronaldo on the other hand have scored 9 goals in 21 appearences in four editions for this tournament. We take a look at all time top goal scorers in UEFA Euro history.
Antoine Griezmann is also another name on the list who will be looking to add to his already impressive tally of 6 goals in European Championships. He finished the 2016 tournament at home as top goal scorer and with France in such a good form he has geniune chance of not only matching Platini but setting the bar higher by the end of the tournament.
All eyes however will be on Cristiano Ronaldo when the Euro 2020 starts on 11th June, if he can add just another goal to his haul of 9 goals so far that will make him outright top goal scorer in Tournaments history.
