Whether you are interesting in placing a bet or want to gauge which team has the best chance it’s always useful to look at the in-form players, who play for the in-form teams and decide who has the best chance of taking the Golden Boot award.

In 2012 we saw 6 joint top scorers with no particular player standing out. We may see the same this time around if elite stars like Cristiano Ronaldo fail to shine. Previously the award has been won be players only scoring 2 goals on 3 occasions however with an extended tournament this time around, there is more opportunity for goals.

Thomas Muller
The German never fails to deliver on the international stage and he will be coming off the back of a very prosperous season for Bayern Munich.

Scoring 31 goals in 43 games thus far it’s his most successful yet, along with his impressive international record of 31 goals in 70 this makes him a firm favourite. 10 of those goals came in World Cup tournaments.

Antoine Griezmann
Although we are still yet to see what Antoine can achieve on an international level he has a lot going for him. Like Muller he is coming off the back of the most successful season in his career scoring 29 goals in only 45 games whilst playing a key role in Atletico Madrid’s title challenge and Champions League efforts.

He has scored 7 goals in 26 goals for France however it is only until recent he has been deployed in a more advanced position. France will also have the home advantage this summer and have been dubbed the favourites by many bookmakers, giving Griezmann a very good chance of achieving the Golden Boot this summer.

Harry Kane
England may not be the favourites however Harry Kane has been excellent form this season and has been effective on the international scene too. He’s likely to be the main man up front for Hodgson come this summer with Wayne Rooney taking up a deeper role, and has been backed by the pundits at Automatenherz to be one of the leading lights of the whole tournament.

Kane is clinical in front of goal and doesn’t need a second invitation to put the ball in the back of the net – with fellow Spurs dynamo Dele Alli bursting through behind him he is sure to have plenty of chance. Kane has scored 27 goals in 41 games this season, closing in on last season’s record of 31 goals. He’s also managed 4 goals in 10 games for England, one of those coming against Germany.
