A summer of major tournament football is upon us, which of course means the onset of Very Bad Football Predictions™. Who will win? Who will crash out? Who will return home a hero and who will return a farce?

And then there’s the matter of the Golden Boot. Who will hoist that beauty into the German sky this summer?

The list of contenders is both familiar and curious, testament to a tournament that feels both inevitable in its ending yet totally unpredictable in its conclusion, provoked by the sheer amount of football that is set to bombard our lives over the next month.

Below, the Mirror runs through the top 10 contenders for the Euro 2024 Golden Boot.

Kylian Mbappe

The favourite with the bookies and social media. Mbappe, fresh off signing for Real Madrid, is all summer vibes, the usual drama that accompanies the French phenom’s forays onto the biggest stages now officially out of sight and out of mind.

There has gurgled some worry that Mbappe might be carrying a back injury. Yet, the former PSG star also carries with him the Golden Boot from Qatar. And having become only the second person in history to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final, it’s not difficult to imagine Mbappe is on a mission to eclipse that audacious feat this summer.

Les Bleus are tipped as one of the favourites for the tournament, and Mbappe will have plenty of supply lines to . Which is a terrifying prospect for any opposition defenders out there.
