Who will finish Euro 2016 as the highest scoring nation?

Germany take to the Euros as the reigning world champions, after their dominant performances in Brazil two years ago when they marched to victory, famously smashing the South American hosts 7-1 along the way.

With rampant Bayern Munich marksman Thomas Muller set to lead their line, alongside Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil and Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos among others

The Germans are also the highest scoring nation in European Championship history, though have conceded the most ever too, and will take some stopping going forward.

Didier Deschamps’ hosts France are seen as 3/1 second-favourites to fire in the most goals on home soil, and are definitely worth a punt with the likes of Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann, Manchester United starlet Anthony Martial and Juventus midfield ace Paul Pogba all set to star for Les Bleus.

Holders Spain could return to prominence

After suffering a hapless World Cup campaign in Brazil, Spain will look to reinstate their international supremacy this summer as they enter as the reigning champions, having ousted Italy in the Euro 2012 final.

The holders, guided by experienced tactician Vicente del Bosque, are 11/2 to end as the most prolific team in France, with the Spaniards’ 4-0 win over Italy four years ago seeing them boast the highest amount ever scored in a European Championship final.

As well as the big guns for Euro 2016, there are many others possessing enough attacking firepower to rally to the top of the goal standings, including Marc Wilmots’ talented Belgium side, who are 11/1 achieve this feat.
The Red Devils boast the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne in their forward ranks, players that are more than capable of finding the target on the big stage, though their Group E rivals Sweden are also an outside shout.
