Cristiano Ronaldo remains comfortably the leading goalscorer in the history of the European Championship, with the Portugal legend netting 14 times in 30 appearances in the finals.

Michel Platini sits second on the list, scoring nine times in five appearances for France, while ex-England striker Alan Shearer occupies third, having struck seven goals in nine European Championship outings.

Three Lions captain Harry Kane moved level with Shearer on seven European Championship goals during his country's run to the final of Euro 2024.

Kane is now his country's joint all-time leading European Championship goalscorer alongside Shearer, but the Bayern Munich striker was unable to register in the final of the 2024 competition, as England suffered a 2-1 defeat to Spain in Berlin.

La Roja forward Alvaro Morata and France's Antoine Griezmann are also on seven European Championship goals alongside Shearer and Kane.

Nine players are on the list with six goals, including Thierry Henry, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku, Wayne Rooney, Robert Lewandowski and Ruud van Nistelrooy, while Marco van Basten and Zinedine Zidane are among those to have struck five times in the finals of the famous competition.

Here, Sports Mole looks at all of the players to have scored five or more goals at Euros.
