Beth Mead finishes as UEFA Women's EURO 2022 Top Scorer
England forward Beth Mead has topped the Grifols Top Scorer rankings for UEFA Women's EURO 2022, followed by Germany’s Alexandra Popp and England’s Alessia Russo.
Going into the final, Mead and Popp were both level on six goals (equalling Inka Grings' finals record from 2009), but the England No7 was ahead 5-0 on assists, the first tie-breaker ahead of fewest minutes played. However, injured in the warm-up before the Wembley showpiece, Popp was forced to withdraw from the Germany team, and thus confirmed Mead's top scorer status.
Russo, finishing third, achieved a unique feat. All four of her goals came from the bench, the most scored by a substitute at any Women's EURO.
Players level on goals scored are ordered first on assists then on fewest minutes played.
