Can Ronaldo win Euro 2020 golden boot? Tie-break rules & how top scorer prize is decided

The Juventus star could well add another individual accolade to his trophy cabinet after excelling at the tournament

Cristiano Ronaldo became the joint-top men’s international goalscorer of all time at Euro 2020 as he hit the back of the net five times for Portugal.

Though crowned a European champion at Euro 2016, major tournaments have not necessarily been happy hunting grounds for Ronaldo.

The defending champions were dumped out at the first knockout hurdle against Belgium, but the Juventus striker could still earn another individual award for his collection.

Goal takes a look at the Euro 2020 golden boot tie breakers and whether Ronaldo can still win. 

Can Ronaldo win Euro 2020 golden boot?

Ronaldo is on course to win the Euro 2020 golden boot award, provided none of the contenders from Italy or England score enough goals in the final.

Despite Portugal’s elimination in the last 16 at the hands of Belgium, Ronaldo still tops the scoring chart with five goals in 360 minutes (four matches).

The Juventus star is tied on five with Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick, but leads by virtue of the fact that he has more assists.

Of the remaining contenders who can still catch Ronaldo, England captain Harry Kane is the closest with four goals.
