EURO2020: Cristiano Ronaldo wins Golden Boot award

Read Time:54 Second

Cristiano Ronaldo added to his Euros legacy by beating England stars Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling to the Golden Boot award.

The 35-year-old crashed out of the competition during the round-of-16 following his country’s 1-0 loss to Belgium.

Yet Ronaldo had already scored five goals in Portugal’s first four games to bag the Golden Boot.

The forward netted as many as Patrik Schick, who made one more appearance as the Czech Republic reached the quarterfinals.

However, Ronaldo also boasts an assist and led the Golden Boot charts due to UEFA’s criteria in handing out the award.

Four of CR7’s goals at Euro 2020 came from the penalty spot with his sole effort from open-play coming in the 4-2 defeat to Germany.

And Ronaldo was ultimately crowned the winner after England heroes Kane and Sterling failed to score in the Euro 2020 final against Italy.

To add insult to injury, the Three Lions’ heroes then missed out on lifting the great prize of all as they lost in a penalty shoot-out.
