Answers and explanations
- Michel Platini is the French player to have scored the most goals at the Euro. Indeed, ‘Platoche’ found the net 9 times… during the same Euro in 1984. This unparalleled performance has made him the all-time leading scorer in the sport (tied with Cristiano Ronaldo)
- Yugoslavia’s Milan Galic was the first goalscorer in the history of the competition. Indeed, on 6 July 1960, he won the honour during the match between Yugoslavia and France (5-4) at the Parc des Princes.
- With a 68-second goal against Greece in 2004, Russia’s Dmitri Kirichenko is the fastest scorer in Euro history. This anecdote did not prevent the Greeks from winning their first (and only) major title in the same year.
- 20 years after the first edition was when the German Klaus Allofs left his mark on the competition. The former Girondins de Bordeaux player scored three times, making him the top scorer at Euro 1980.
- The French will remember that Portugal’s Eder is the latest goalscorer at the Euro – and what a goal! It was this goal that allowed Portugal to beat France and win their first international title.
