France forward Antoine Griezmann claimed the UEFA EURO 2016 adidas Golden Boot with six goals and two assists, three ahead of Silver Boot laureate Cristiano Ronaldo and Bronze Boot winner Olivier Giroud. Griezmann, who finished with six finals goals, opened his EURO account with a 90th-minute effort against Albania on matchday two. However, it was during the knockout stage that he really started to motor.
Griezmann has been also named as the UEFA EURO 2016 Player of the Tournament by UEFA's technical observers.
Also new European champion Renato Sanches has been chosen above Kingsley Coman and Portugal team-mate Raphael Guerreiro for the SOCAR Young Player of the Tournament award. The accolade caps a sensational breakthrough season for the teenager, whose performances as a substitute in three of Fernando Santos' side's first four matches in France earned him his maiden international start for the quarter-final against Poland.
