Who will win the Golden Boot? Dani Olmo now the favourite

Only four players have a realistic chance of winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2024 as we enter the last knockings of the tournament.

 

4) Jude Bellingham (2 goals)
Headed home what proved to be the only goal in England’s nervy, unconvincing win over Serbia on the back of a spectacular debut season for Real Madrid. But was a conspicuous part of the collective bed-sh*tting against Denmark and near invisible against Slovenia. But then came that goal v Slovakia to confirm he has rather large testicles.

 

3) Harry Kane (2 goals)
Has been playing walking football for large parts of England’s laboured climb into the semi-finals, but he is still only one goal off top spot and has form over course and distance despite his current travails.

 

2) Cody Gakpo (3 goals)
The only other three-goal man still in the tournament. Could he thrive at Liverpool if Arne Slot plays him on the left?

 

1) Dani Olmo (3 goals)
Three knock-out games, three goals for the RB Leipzig forward who scored only four goals in the Bundesliga last season. And we know he is in the final. He also has two assists, which puts him ahead of the other three-goal opposition as it stands.
