With powerhouses like France, Portugal and England expected to make deep runs, star players such as

, and Harry Kane are prime candidates for the scoring charts.

Additionally, the likes of Romelu Lukaku for Belgium and Jude Bellingham for England are poised to make significant impacts on the goal tally.
