The French wonder boy has already proved why he is the perfect successor to the goal-machine, Cristiano Ronaldo in football. Having scored 325 goals and assisted 153 times, Kylian Mbappé is already one of the top strikers in the world. He lit up the 2018 FIFA World Cup with his scintillating performance and won the “Best Player Award” in the tournament while leading his team to global glory at the tender age of 19. 

After recently securing a free-transfer move to Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain, he will once again look to propel the French team to another major trophy in Germany. He is definitely one of the best strikers to watch in the Championship.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

The Al-Nassr striker is arguably the most feared attacker in the history of football. Even at the age of 39, Cristiano Ronaldo has broken the top goal-scoring record in a calendar year in the Saudi Pro League by netting 35 goals this season. The Real Madrid legend has scored 893 goals in his senior career for club and country. 

As he is in the twilight of his career, and is likely to retire after the end of the Euro 2024, he will certainly try to continue his goalscoring momentum in Germany as well. Ronaldo is considered as the synonym of goal because of his scoring prowess and sublime finish. Roberto Martínez will rely a lot on Ronaldo to bring goals in big games. As he will want to finish his career on a high note, the Euro 2024 might be a stage for him to show why he is one of the greatest players on earth.

3. Robert Lewandowski (Poland)

Lewandowski’s last Euro outing was a miserable one as Poland bowed out of the competition from the group stage after losing 2-3 to Sweden in their last game. However, the Barcelona striker is currently in red-hot form as he enjoyed an impressive season, scoring 19 goals and accumulating 8 assists in La Liga.

He is the all-time top scorer for his country with 82 goals to his name so far. As he has not won any major trophy for Poland yet, he will go all guns blazing in this summer tournament. The 35-year-old is a beast inside the penalty box as he is one of the great finishers of the modern day.

4. Niclas Füllkrug (Germany)

Borussia Dortmund’s Niclas Füllkrug has had a season to remember this calendar year. The German attacker is currently the most in-form striker, given his contribution to his team’s success in all competitions. The sublime finisher recorded 16 goals and 10 assists throughout the season at the club level. A great striker off the ball, Füllkrug might be a magic card for Julian Nagelsmann in Euro 2024.

5. Harry Kane (England)

The English captain won the striker of the season in the Bundesliga after collecting 36 goals in 32 games for Bayern Munich. Despite moving to Germany from Spurs, Harry Kane continued his scoring exploits for the Bavarians and became the top scorer of the league in his debut season. He currently has 63 international goals and will look to add some more to his collection in Euro 2024. 

6. Álvaro Morata (Spain)

In a star-studded Spanish contingent, Álvaro Morata has been handed the captain’s armband by Luis de la Fuente because of his tactical and significant presence in the playing XI. He will be charged to oversee the goal contributions in the 2024 Euro as the Atlético Madrid man is fully reliable in this regard. The 31-year-old striker has feasted on goals this season, securing 22 goals for the La Liga outfit. Whenever Diego Simeone needed a goal, Morata was the man to bring that. He will undoubtedly bring his experience in scoring to Germany in order to help Spain go through every stage of Euro 2024. His off-the-ball movement, clean striking and heading will be worrying for Spain’s opponents.

7. Rafael Leão (Portugal)

Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael Leão will be one of the best strikers going into Euro 2024 to represent Portugal. The AC Milan striker has been a standout figure in Serie A for his lightning pace and physical strength. The young forward amassed 16 goals throughout the season and has guided his side to glory on various occasions. Alongside Ronaldo and João Félix, Leão is expected to break through the defensive lines of the opposition this Euro.

8. Romelu Lukaku (Belgium)

Lukaku has already established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in Europe. The strong attacker has been among the top goalscorers this season. He scored 21 goals and claimed 4 assists in all competitions for Roma. As he is going to lead Belgium’s attack in the Euro, it’s fair to say that he’ll be one of the strikers to watch throughout the tournament.

9. Rasmus Højlund (Denmark)

The Danish forward is one of the best strikers to watch for this Euro. The tall Dane found the back of the net on 16 occasions for Manchester United across all competitions. Erik Ten Hag put his trust in him after the departure of Ronaldo, and the striker managed to fill in to some extent. Højlund’s impressive off-the-ball movement and heading ability will be well utilized by Denmark in Germany.

10. Bruno Petković (Croatia)

The Croatian is one of the best strikers going into the European Championships this summer. Bruno Petković is clearly one of the most underrated forwards in Europe despite his sensational performances throughout the season. He became the top scorer for Dinamo Zagreb with 11 goals in 27 appearances and led his team to league glory. The towering Croatian was also sublime in the Conference League as he scored 7 goals in just 7 games. He will surely shine in front of the goal for Croatia in Euro 2024 with the help of midfield maestro, Luka Modrić and another experienced forward Ivan Perišić.
