JPlayers who achieved glory in the European national team tournament in which Platini's mythical participation in the 1984, or the performances of Gerd Müller, Van Basten, Shearer o David Villa.
The Eurocup has lived 16 editions of maximum competition and in which great European players have been able to stand out. In fact, among the scorers of their championships we find authentic myths of the continent, some of them still competing today like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Curiously, the Portuguese has never been the top scorer of an edition, but it is in general with its 29 many. In fact, has a Euro Cup fee 2021 quite profitable in this sense to see if he finally gets the title of top scorer of a Euro, an award for which he will fight with other great players like Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann, Harry Kane of Romelu Lukaku.
And is that, Cristiano is a man with a voracious mentality, who wants to beat and achieve all possible records in his career. In this sense, it would be possible to buy some mythical players from the old continent who were pichichis of some edition.
From the dominant Germany to the France of Arconada
In the first two Euro Cups there was no clear dominator in this statistical section and there was a tie with five and three players, respectively, with two goals each, the same ones that made Dragan Dzajic the top solo filmmaker for the first time in the history of the tournament in 1968.
From there came the German rule, as three players of that nationality would be the next three best scorers. The mythical Gerd Müller with four goals in the Euro 1972, Dieter Müller with the same number of goals in 1976 and Klaus Allofs with three in 1980. Three editions in which the Germans took two titles and reached a final in their golden age.
In 1984 It was the Eurocup of the great Michel Platini, who led his France to the title by reaching no less than nine goals in the five games played, including the goal against Spain in the final foul that passed under Luis Miguel Arconada.
The most current scorers
Behind the, a Marco van Basten emerged that in 1988 would also leave his mark in this competition with five goals. In the next, quadruple tie at three goals in one of the poorest editions in this regard, before the great Alan Shearer appeared to lead England in 1996 with five targets, as well Pichichi at the time.
Already in this century, we have seen in the Euro of 2000 Patrick Kluivert and Savo Milosevic to draw with five goals, in that of 2004 Milan Baros win the trophy with five others, David Villa to do the same with four goals in the 2008 or a six-cushion tie in that of the 2012, with Fernando Torres taking that trophy for the fact of having delivered an assist. This same player has returned the smile to the fans by confirming at the end of May that he will return to football.
We will surely get to see many new feats and goals through championships and football tournaments.. We may still be surprised by new players or returning players, as Torres, and offer us new memories and maybe even records.
