Here Are The Euro 2020 Stat Leaders After The Tournament

The sun has set on a fantastic tournament of football. From Schick's wondergoal against Scotland, to the Swiss dumping out France on penalties and watching football come to Rome.

While Italy have left their footballing footprint, many players have made a name for themselves and will be remembered for different reasons after Euro 2020.

For all you stat nerds out there - there's plenty to show from several weeks of games and this article will highlight the top individual performances of all aspects.

Top Goalscorer(s) - Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick (Italy/Czech Republic) - Five Goals

One of the greatest to ever do it shares the golden boot spoils with a Czech after Euro 2020. Patrik Schick scored goals when they mattered, including goals in the Last-16 and Quarter-Finals. Ronaldo, on the other hand, was a cool face in front of the penalty spot with three penalties adding to his total.

Most Assists - Steven Zuber (Switzerland) - Four Assists

Euro 2020's playmaking crown goes to Swiss midfielder Steven Zuber. The Eintracht Frankfurt star mostly played on the left of a midfield three or four, and helped the Swiss on their run to the Quarter-Finals.

Top Speed - Leonardo Spinazzola and Loïc Négo (Italy/Hungary) - 33.8km/h

Two full-backs clocked in at the fasted speed over the tournament, one of them a shoe-in for player of the tournament. Spinazzola was a catalyst for the Italian attack before tearing his achilles against Belgium. Négo was a key piece in Hungary's strong showing in the proverbial 'Group of Death'.

Distance Covered - Jorginho (Italy) - 86.6km

It's no surprise this stat was lead by a finalist, having played the most games across the tournament. Italy's midfield stalwart Jorginho covered the most ground over Euro 2020, followed by England's Kalvin Phillips.

Most Tackles Made - Marco Verratti (Italy) - 30

Italy's Marco Verratti had the most tackles in the tournament by a country mile. His Azzurri teammate - Manuel Locatelli - was second with 15. Verratti missed Italy's first two group games too.

Most Saves - Yan Sommer (Switzerland) - 21 

Having to make the most saves might not be a great reflection on a team's defence, but nonetheless Yan Sommer had a fantastic tournament for Switzerland. The Borussia Mönchengladbach keeper was a particular presence in both of the Swiss' penalty shootouts.

Most Passes Attempted - Aymeric Laporte (Spain) - 689

While it was a relatively new Spanish side brought to this Euro's, their ethos stayed the same. The Spanish passed the ball around like no other team and their defense was a key part of it. Laporte attempted 145 more passes than any other player in the tournament.

Most Crosses Completed - Andy Robertson (Scotland) - 12

When it comes to putting dangerous balls in the box, Andy Robertson had attempted and completed the most out of his counterparts. The Liverpool full-back wasn't primarily playing his usual left-back role, but still whipped the ball in a record amount of times.

Most Dribbles Completed - Raheem Sterling (England) - 34

The Manchester City forward had an impressive tournament as England's leading goal-scorer. Even in the depths of extra time, Sterling was an ever presence running at the opposition's defence.

Most Clean Sheets - Jordan Pickford (England) - 5

A contentious choice as #1 before and during the tournament, Jordan Pickford proved a lot of doubters wrong with his finals display. Despite a shaky performance in the semi-final, the Everton man didn't concede for five games on the trot.

And now... for some of the more rogue ones. 

Most Fouls Committed - Tomas Delaney (Denmark) - 15 fouls committed
