Most goals at Euros: All-time top scorers for players, teams at UEFA European Championship

Euro 2024 is all set for the 17th edition of the biggest tournament in European international football.

Alongside the battle for supremacy to be confirmed as the kings of Europe, there will be plenty of individual contests too, with Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane amongst the favorites to win the Golden Boot award.

France, Portugal, England and others will be hoping their main attackers can fire in Germany, as they plot a path towards the final on July 14.

The all-time top scorer list at the UEFA European Championship features some huge names from both past and present, but a change at the top is unlikely in 2024.

Top goal scorers at UEFA European Championship

Ahead of Euro 2024, Ronaldo was leading the way at the top of the all-time goal charts, with 14 goals spread across five tournaments, including a Golden Boot win at Euro 2020.

Amongst the chasing pack, France’s Antoine Griezmann will be looking to add to his seven goals at the Euros, with Romelu Lukaku and Alvaro Morata on six each. Morata needed just one game to draw level with Griezmann and close the gap to Ronaldo.
