McTominay among top Euro 2024 scorers

Wednesday 21 June 2023 13:19

Scott McTominay took his tally in the Euro 2024 qualifiers to five in four games, with Scotland's second goal in the 2-0 victory over Georgia in a rain-interrupted encounter at Hampden Park.

The clinical strike means our homegrown midfielder is just one shy of the leading marksmen in the competition, with Steve Clarke's men top of Group A after four straight wins and looking well on course to reach the finals in Germany next year.

Only two players have hit the net more often during the opening four rounds of games - one of them a former Red.

Romelu Lukaku hit two of Belgium's goals in a 3-0 victory in Estonia to ensure he joins Rasmus Hojlund at the top of the chart. 

Romelu Lukaku remains a prolific scorer for Belgium.

Atalanta forward Hojlund bagged his sixth strike of the competition for Denmark during Monday's draw with Slovenia in Group H. 

The 20-year-old hit a hat-trick against Finland in March and continues to enhance his growing reputation.

McTominay is level with three others on five, including another ex-United man in Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portugal international snatched a late winner in his landmark 200th cap, against 10-man Iceland on Tuesday night.

Harry Kane is also on five, thanks to his double in England's 7-0 thrashing of North Macedonia at Old Trafford, with the first set up by Luke Shaw.

The Tottenham talisman was the leading scorer in qualifying for Euro 2020, which actually took place a year later due to the Covid pandemic, after notching 12 goals for Gareth Southgate's side and could easily emulate that feat with the Three Lions in such dominant and impressive form.

Switzerland's Zeki Amdouni, who plies his trade for Basel, is also on five, while France's Kylian Mbappe and England wide-man Bukayo Saka, fresh from his hat-trick at the Theatre of Dreams, are currently on four.

Rasmus Hojlund scores his sixth goal of the Euro 2024 qualifiers for Christian Eriksen's Denmark.
