Ronaldo wins Golden Boot 2020, Donnarumma crowned player of the tournament
However, Ronaldo also boasts an assist and led the Golden Boot charts due to UEFA’s criteria in handing out the award.
Portugal forward, CRISTIANO RONALDO added to his Euros legacy by beating England stars Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling to the Golden Boot award.
The 35-year-old remained at the summit of the goal-scoring heroics this summer despite Portugal’s early elimination.
The Juventus super star crashed out of the competition during the round-of-16 following his country’s 1-0 loss to Belgium.
Yet Ronaldo had already scored five goals in Portugal’s first four games to bag the Golden Boot.
The forward netted as many as Patrik Schick, who made one more appearance as the Czech Republic reached the quarterfinals.
However, He also boasts an assist and led the Golden Boot charts due to UEFA’s criteria in handing out the award.
Four of CR7’s goals at Euro 2020 came from the penalty spot with his sole effort from open-play coming in the 4-2 defeat to Germany.
And Ronaldo was ultimately crowned the winner after England heroes Kane and Sterling failed to score in the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
To add insult to injury, the Three Lions’ heroes then missed out on lifting the great prize of all as they lost in a penalty shoot-out.
Meanwhile, Gianluigi Donnarumma has been crowned Euro 2020’s Player of the Tournament.
The towering keeper saved Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka’s spot-kicks as England suffered a heartbreaking shootout defeat in the final.
Donnarumma, 22, kept three clean sheets during the tournament having lived up to his sky-high potential.
He was also the hero in the semi-final as Italy triumphed over Spain in another penalty shootout.
