The ongoing 2020 European Championship has seen arguably the most exciting games seen in a long time at the international arena, with a number of top teams getting knocked out by teams who were not highly rated going into the tournament.

As with international tournaments, there have been a number of goals scored and as usual there is a familiar name at the top in the race for the Golden Boot, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring five goals in his 360 minutes on the pitch.

Ronaldo has never won the Golden Boot at either the World Cup and the Euros, and if things stand as it is, he will win his first such honour - even though Czech Republic striker, Patrik Schick has himself netted five goals, though his country were knocked out by Denmark in the quarter-finals after losing 2-1.

Reports state that even though both Ronaldo and Schick are level on the goalscoring charts, it will be the 36-year-old be crowned the tournament's top scorer. That's because UEFA will hand the award to whichever player has produced the most assists in the event of a tie and in this instance, Ronaldo gets the better of his Czech rival.

Ronaldo registered one assist in the tournament, and Schick failed to do so - though the likes of Harry Kane, Kasper Dolberg and Raheem Sterling with three goals to their name, still have a chance of equalling him or going past him considering that their respective countries are in the last-four stage of the tournament.
