  • the Man of the Match Award for outstanding performance during each game of the tournament, first awarded in 1996;
  • the Team of the Tournament for best combined team of players at the tournament.

Player of the TournamentEdit

Golden BootEdit

The Golden Boot award goes to the top goalscorer of each edition of the UEFA European Championship.

If there is more than one player with the same number of goals, since 2008 the tie-breaker goes to the player who has contributed the most assists. If there is still more than one player, the tie-breaker since goes to the player who has played the least amount of time.

All-time Euro XIEdit

In June 2016, ahead of UEFA Euro 2016 in France, UEFA published an All-time Euro XI; the winning team was chosen based on votes cast on EURO2016.com and Twitter.

  • Appeared in at least a semi-final
  • Featured in a Team of the Tournament
  • Finished a EURO tournament as top scorer
  • Produced an iconic EURO moment
