The Women’s Euro 2022 campaign is nearly underway, so let’s take a look at seven players who are in with a shout of the Golden Boot at the upcoming competition.
The competition begins in mid-July and will be hosted all over England, giving the Lionesses‘ squad home advantage in a competition where they’re one of the favourites to take home the Euro 2022 crown.
There is going to be mass amounts of talent on show at this year’s competition, with the standard of women’s football growing exponentially over the past few years, so it really is something to take your time out and give a watch. However, a lot of fans still don’t know where some of the talents lie within women’s football, as a lot of leagues still aren’t covered by the masses.
So, we thought we’d compile a list of seven players that are tipped for the Golden Boot at Euro 2022 – scroll down below to find out who they are.
Vivianne Miedema – Netherlands
One of the greatest goalscorers in the women’s game right now – is Vivianne Miedema.
She has a remarkable 92 international goals in as little as 108 games for the Oranje and will be looking to add to that tally in this upcoming competition. She guarantees goals, Vivianne Miedema is our first woman that is tipped for the Golden Boot.
Marie-Antoinette Katoto – France
With over 100 career goals at the age of just 23. Marie-Antoinette Katoto is one hell of a player.
She was always destined for greatness after her UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship Player of the Tournament award in 2016, but no one could’ve predicted how quickly she would establish herself as one of Europe’s elite forwards.
With France being one of the favourites in this comp, expect a golden boot shout for Katoto.
Alexia Putellas – Spain
How could we not include her? The current ranked best female footballer in the world and 2021’s Ballon d’Or winner; Alexia Putellas.
Spain are the outright favourites at the moment to take the cup home, with Putellas being one of the main reasons for this. The Barcelona captain will be coming back fighting for silverware after a bitter loss to Lyon in the Champions League final earlier in the year. Let’s see if she has more success with her national side.
She has a keen eye for a goal, so it’s no shock why she’s placed on our list.
Beth Mead – England
One of England’s key names, Beth Mead will be integral to the Lionesses’ side in July.
he was involved in over 20 goals during England’s qualifying games, proving her worth as a pivotal point in the side. Expect her to shine in her home nation and to be definitely in with a Golden Boot shout.
Ellen White – England
From one English player to another. This time to clinical finisher, Ellen White.
Tipped as actually the odds-on favourite for the Golden Boot, Ellen White scores goals for fun for club and country and we expect this competition to be no different.
A lot will depend on the success of England, but Ellen White is a great shout in the battle for the boot.
Lea Schuller – Germany
Next up is Germany and Bayern Munich striker – Lea Schuller.
Schuller has enjoyed a fantastic campaign with the German club, scoring 19 goals in 29 matches – picking up four assists along the way.
She’ll be leading the line for the Germans and should bang them in for fun.
Ada Hegerberg – Norway
Last but not least, we have a Champions League winner – Ada Hegerberg.
She’ll be on top of the world after Lyon conquered Barcelona in this year’s final, with Hegerburg picking up a vital goal in that 3-1 win for her side.
Now she’ll be looking to replicate her club goal-scoring form for Norway. She definitely knows where the net is, so we certainly back her to be up there.
