Euro 2020 certainly made up for its year-late start, with cracking matches, tense encounters, and plenty of surprises. And while technically the tournament’s top scorer was ‘Own Goals’ (10 own goals – more than previous European Championships combined), numerous players showcased their talent during the tournament. The one and only Cristiano Ronaldo proved his class once again by finishing as the tournament’s official top scorer despite Portugal being knocked out by Belgium in the Last 16, but the likes of France’s Kylian Mbappe failed to live up to pre-tournament expectations. Instead, a handful of relatively unknown players broke out this summer, with many being hopeful of earning big moves during the summer’s transfer window. 

Some teams underperformed, while some overperformed, with Euro 2016 winners Portugal exiting at the Last 16 and 2018 World Cup winners being knocked out in the quarter-finals by Switzerland; while the Czech Republic beat the returning Dutch to reach the quarter-finals and Denmark reaching the last four after losing their first two group-stage games.
