Although, finishing top goal scorer doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be the best player. We’ll take a closer look at the top contenders for top goal scorer of Euro Football 2016.
Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy
Vardy is in outstanding form. He has the capability of not only inventing goals, just like the screamer he pulled off against Liverpool this season, but perfectly fulfils the role of an ideal striker. The 29 year old times his runs to perfection, creating space to get behind the defensive back four and has a superb understanding of the game.

His excellent finishes and quick dribbling skills make him a top favourite to finish top goal scorer of Euro football 2016, should England progress to the final stages of the tournament.
Considered to be the best player in the world by many, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be listed as a top favourite for top goal scorer, regardless of the competition. Cristiano is second favourite to finish at the top of the list and has a long history of goals to prove his worth. The Portuguese skipper is a goal scoring machine, having scored a total of 51 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid. He’s in a league of his own and very capable of scoring with both his left and right foot. Always on form, Cristiano is capable of scoring from any position or set pieces. Ronaldo has been dominating football for many, many years and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop anytime soon.
The Bayern Munich striker is persistent and a deadly finisher. He scored a total 32 goals this season for his club and nine goals for his country during the qualification stages, which helped the Germans top their group with ease. Muller can be considered as a complete striker, rarely missing goal scoring opportunities and cutting through the opposing defence. He is directly and indirectly involved in most goals and his height helps him in being in front of headed opportunities. Thomas Müller loves putting pressure on his opposition, lurking and causing them to clear the ball or forcing them to lose possession of the ball. He is the favourite for finishing top goal scorer for Euro Football 2016 and his contributions towards the international side is what makes him a clear favourite.View market
