Euro 2020 Golden Boot race: Latest updates and assist standings as Cristiano Ronaldo currently leads

Euro 2020 race for the Golden Boot: The updated top scorer and assists standings as Cristiano Ronaldo leads the way heading into the knockouts… with no goals yet for Harry Kane or Kylian Mbappe

Euro 2020 has now reached its business end, with the knockouts set to commence on Saturday after a closely-contested group stage.   

It’s Cristiano Ronaldo who has taken the tournament by storm thus far, with his crucial two penalties against France taking him to five goals in just three games.   

Czech Republic forward Patrik Schick is also in fine form, with one of his three goals arguably already cementing the strike of the tournament, being his long-range effort against Scotland.
