Atletico Madrid and France forward Antoine Griezmann has won the Euro 2016 Golden Boot, after his six-goal tally over the course of the competition.
Griezmann was on the losing side in Sunday night's final, as the host nation were downed 1-0 by Portugal after extra time. Griezmann missed a couple of huge chances to add to his tally, and the individual prize will come as little consolation following Les Bleus' heartbreaking defeat in Paris.
Griezmann streets ahead in Golden Boot stakes. Scored 6, ahead of Ronaldo, Nani, Bale, Morata, Payet and Giroud - who all hit 3. #FanVoice— Scott Saunders (@_scottsaunders) July 11, 2016
The 25-year-old finished with twice as many goals as his nearest competitors for the prize, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, Olivier Giroud, Dimitri Payet, Alvaro Morata and Gareth Bale all bagging three goals each.
However, Griezmann admitted after the game, according to the Mirror, that he can't reflect on his achievement just yet because his side were defeated: "Maybe later I can feel proud, but for now, it's about the group.
"I'm very disappointed for my team-mates. I really wanted to offer them this trophy, but I couldn't score and I'm disappointed.
"It's cruel and magnificent at the same time. We've lived through some extraordinary moments, and the saddest moments as well. We have to learn.
"But tonight we gave it all and we have no regrets. I'm proud of the squad, proud of everybody. Now we have to come back stronger. This time we didn't manage it, unlike against Germany. It is a pity.
"We hit the post, I had chances as well and I almost scored. The goalkeeper played well, too. It's frustrating, but we must come back stronger."
Poor Griezmann. Lost two massive finals in two months, and did more than anyone to get his teams there. His day will come.— Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) July 10, 2016
