It was no shock to see England striker Harry Kane among the favourites before the tournament given he won the individual prize at the 2018 World Cup with six goals – but he is without a goal after two games.
Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has drawn level with Czech Republic’s Patrik Schick, both with three goals in two games. Ronaldo followed his two late goals in a 3-0 win over Hungary with the opening goal against Germany before assisting Diogo Jota’s late consolation strike.
Schick struck a brace against Scotland at Hampden Park included a wonder goal from near the halfway line, and scored from the penalty spot versus Croatia.
Serie A top scorer Romelu Lukaku and Belgium are also seeking success this summer, and the striker’s two goals in a 3-0 win over Russia put him joint-second.
Lukaku is later joined by Manuel Locatelli, with a well-taken double for Italy in a 3-0 drubbing of Switzerland, as well as fellow Azzuri forward Ciro Immobile.
Two Ukraine stars – Roman Yaremchuk and Andriy Yarmolenko – also have two apiece along with an assist each, while Netherlands Denzel Dumfries has two for the tournament as well.
