UEFA EURO 2020 set a new record for final tournament goals after Mislav Oršić’s strike for Croatia against Spain in the round of 16 took the tally to 109 – surpassing the previous best, set in 2016.

A further 14 goals in the last-16 games following Oršić’s effort, and 12 across the quarter-final ties has taken the overall tally to 135 with three matches remaining this summer. Of course, this is only the second tournament to use the expanded 24-team format, but UEFA EURO 2020 is also leading the goals per game ratio since the group stage was introduced in 1980.
