Euro 2024 England's top goal scorer: Harry Kane is the favourite, but value lies elsewhere

Euro 2024 is upon us and one of the betting markets we’re looking to exploit is England’s top goalscorer. Can anyone outscore goal machine Harry Kane?

England are favourites to win Euro 2024, which they will, and their leading goalscorer, Harry Kane, will expect to be in the race for the Golden Boot.

Hazza and scoring goals go together like Del and Rodney, fish and chips, tea and biscuits, Brits politely queuing, and England beating Germany at war.

We’re being a bit English-centric, but we’re just excited that it’s nearly time for grown men, often in their 40s and beyond, to embarrass their wives by drunkenly screaming ‘It’s coming home!’ at other men in the street.

Suggested bets

England top scorer: Harry Kane (2 units)

England top scorer: Jude Bellingham (1 unit)

Top tournament assists: Phil Foden (0.5 unit)



Harry Kane

England’s active leading goalscorer is an emphatic favourite to stick the ball in the onion bag more times than any of his cohorts.

Yet unless you’ve got a big pot of gold and a penchant for taking risks in search of a thrill, stick to smaller stakes on higher prices.

England’s number nine rattled in 44 goals in 44 appearances across the Champions League and Bundesliga and claimed the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup.

On top of that, he’s bagged 40 through 35 qualifying matches across five campaigns.



Jude Bellingham

The jump from Kane to the next-best price is staggering. Jude Bellingham would represent a big return and has to be considered given his domestic form.

No one expected him to bag 23 goals in his first full season at Real Madrid. He spent the first quarter of the season digging them out of holes every week.

His goalscoring exploits slowed down as the season progressed, and with others stepping up to the plate, but the point is, he came through when Madrid needed him most.

He’s a guaranteed starter in Gareth Southgate’s midfield and his driving runs will cause problems for most teams, particularly in the group stage.



Phil Foden

Phil Foden is 24 years old and nowhere near the peak of his powers, which is frightening when you consider the level of his performances for Man City.

The cheeky chappy from Stockport contributed 27 goals and 13 assists across all competitions, but he’s so much more than an impressive stat line.

Few will argue that Man City, alongside Real Madrid, are the best the world has to offer. As the season progressed, Foden became the player that Guardiola’s side looked to for inspiration.

His ability to change the game from several positions makes him a dangerous and versatile weapon. We expect him to have multiple goal contributions if England go deep in the tournament, so it’s worth noting there is a market for most assists.



Ollie Watkins

Ollie Watkins isn't going to start games, but he will see minutes when England are in comfortable positions.

He’s worth consideration at big odds just in case Harry Kane suffers another injury setback and has to sit out some matches.



Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka’s efforts with Arsenal this season make him worthy of a mention. Scoring 16 Premier League goals is no mean feat.

It’s also worth pointing out that Raheem Sterling, a wideman with four goals, was England’s joint-top scorer at the last European Championships.



Cole Palmer

It's an outside shot because Palmer might struggle for starts with Bellingham an option in an advanced midfield role and the likes of Foden, Saka and Grealish out wide.

Despite that, no one would have expected him to become Chelsea’s most important player this season with 22 goals and one goal involvement per game in the Premier League.
