Euro 2020 Golden Boot race: Latest updates & assist standings with Ronaldo at the top


Euro 2020 race for the Golden Boot: Cristiano Ronaldo currently leads the way while Switzerland’s Steven Zuber has the most assists so far – but Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling have time to catch up

Euro 2020 has now reached its business end, and glory is on the horizon for those teams battling it out in the quarter-finals.

Though Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick are both sat on five goals apiece, it’s the Portugal man who currently leads the way.  

That’s because if two or more players are on the same number of goals, UEFA have clarified that the prize will then be determined by number of assists, followed by fewest minutes played and finally goals in the qualification phase. 

Neither Ronaldo or Schick are still in the tournament, however, after Portugal were knocked out by Belgium, while the Czech Republic lost their quarter-final against Denmark.   

England’s Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, both on three goals, could have two matches to catch up with Ronaldo, which is the same for Denmark’s Kasper Dolberg. 

Meanwhile, Switzerland’s Steven Zuber has the most assists so far with four to his name, one ahead of Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Spain’s Dani Olmo.

Luke Shaw though is just one behind, having created two brilliant assists in England’s thumping win over Ukraine on Saturday night.
