5. Thierry Henry | National Side: France | Goals: 6 | Appearances: 11 | Tournaments: Euro 2000, 2004 & 2008
Sitting on six goals for France, Thierry Henry is unsurprisingly in the top five all-time goal scorers at the Euros. He was victorious in Euro 2000, beating Italy 2-1 AET. Although he didn’t score in the final, he netted three times during the tournament which was held in Belgium and the Netherlands.
4. Alan Shearer | National Side: England | Goals: 7 | Appearances: 9 | Tournaments: Euro 1992, 1996 & 2000
The only Englishman to make the top 10, Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer bagged 7 goals across two European Championships. Euro 96 was the striker's best goal haul, with an impressive tally of five goals. He scored his remaining two goals in Euro 2000 against France and Romania.
3. Antoine Griezmann | National Side: France | Goals: 7 | Appearances: 11 | Tournaments: Euro 2016 & 2020
The second Frenchman to be in the top 5 equals Shearer's record with seven goals. Antoine Griezmann made his European Championship debut in 2016, where he netted an impressive six goals. Despite falling to Portugal 1-0 in the final, he did earn the Golden Boot award for the tournament. His last goal came in Euro 2020, in a 1-1 draw with Hungary.
2. Michel Platini | National Side: France | Goals: 9 | Appearances: 5 | Tournaments: Euro 1984
A third Frenchman makes the list in second place. Legend Michel Platini managed nine European Championship goals which all came in one tournament, yes ONE tournament! France were triumphant in Euro 1984 with Platini’s nine goals coming in five games, one of which was in the 2-0 final victory over Spain.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo | National Side: Portugal | Goals: 14 | Appearances: 25 | Tournaments: Euro 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016 & 2020
Top of the pile is Portugal legend Cristiano Ronaldo who now plies his trade at Saudi Pro League outfit Al Nassr.
The Portuguese forward has 14 goals to his name in 15 European championship appearances spanning over five tournaments. His most successful European campaign in terms of goalscoring came at Euro 2020 where Ronaldo scored five times, despite going out to Belgium, he shared the Golden Boot with Patrick Schick from the Czech Republic. Don’t bet against Ronaldo appearing at Euro 2024 either.
