UEFA European Championship top goalscorers

By Chris Dinsdale

June 14, 2024 - July 14, 2024 - The UEFA European Championship takes place in Germany, starting on June 14. Portugal talisman Cristiano Ronaldo tops the table of the most prolific scorers at the tournament finals. The 2020 edition saw the 800th UEFA Euro goal, scored by Haris Seferović of Switzerland.

At UEFA Euro 2020, Cristiano Ronaldo set record with five goals in group stage, taking overall tally at the championships to 14. Other leading goalscorers include Michel Platini, who scored nine of France’s 14 goals during 1984 title triumph, Alan Shearer and Antoine Greizmann with seven goals apiece.

Germany opens the tournament against Scotland at the Allianz Arena in Munich on June 14, before facing contests with Hungary and Switzerland, the other teams in Group A. Reigning champions Italy kick off their campaign against Albania in Dortmund, in a fiercely competitive Group B that also includes Spain and Croatia. Tournament favourites France and England, each revelling in their talented generations, begin their quest for silverware against Austria and Serbia respectively, while debutants Georgia start their UEFA Euro adventure against Turkey.

A total of 51 matches will be played at 10 venues over four weeks, with the final played at Olympiastadion in Berlin on July 14.
