In fact, the table of all time scoring players in the UEFA Euro finals is probably going to go through some changes soon:
- Michel Platini, France, 1984, 9 goals
- Alan Shearer, England, 1996 and 2000, 7 goals
- Patrick Kluivert, Netherlands, 1996 and 2000, 6 goals
- Marco Van Basten, Netherlands, 1988, 5 goals
- Savo Milosevic, Yugoslavia, 2000, 5 goals
- Milan Baros, Czech Republic, 2004, 5 goals
- Nuno Gomes, Portugal, 2000 and 2004, 5 goals
- Thierry Henry, France, 2000 and 2004, 5 goals
- Zinedine Zidane, France, 2000 and 2004, 5 goals
- Ruud Van Nisterooij, Netherlands, 2004 and 2008, 5 goals
- Jurgen Klinsmann, Germany, 1988, 1992 and 1996, 5 goals
Of these however, only Van Nistelrooij and Nuno Gomes seem with good possibilities, since
Milan Baros has had a poor season and barely starts in for the Czechs, while Thierry Henry is still dangerous but playing on a French team that seems more and more tired and demotivated.
And well, then there are other marginal players who may enter the list after this Euro: David Villa, or Cristiano Ronaldo or Lukas Podolski, depending on how their teams do in the tournament the coming weeks!
