Romelu Lukaku has been cut to 9/4 favourite in bwin’s Euro 2020 top scorer odds after hitting a double in Belgium’s opening 3-0 win over Turkey.
The powerful forward went into this tournament on the back of a stellar campaign in Italy, with his 24 Serie A goals leading Inter Milan to a memorable title triumph.
Lukaku has now netted 62 times in 94 appearances for the Red Devils, bagging 20 goals in his last 15 competitive internationals.
He told the UEFA website: “It’s nice to start the tournament this way. It’s important to qualify from the group and this is a good start.”
Rahem Sterling has been trimmed to 20/1 after grabbing the deciding goal in England’s 1-0 victory over Croatia.
The Manchester City forward was born just a stone’s throw from Wembley Stadium and celebrated his first strike at a major tournament in familiar surroundings.
Sterling has a good record for the Three Lions in recent times, having netted 12 in 16 going into the Euros.
But he had never found the back of the net in either a World Cup or European Championship in his previous 12 appearances.
“It’s great to break the duck,” he declared. “I’m here with England, I’m enjoying my football and that’s the most important thing and I’m just happy to score.
“I’m a person that’s hungry for goals but at the same time I know the true value of a team.”
Italy duo trimmed
Harry Kane has been eased out slightly to 7/1 after drawing a blank in that fixture.
The England striker has already picked up a World Cup Golden Boot after bagging six goals at Russia 2018, two more than any other player.
After topping the Premier League scoring charts for the third time with Tottenham last season, Kane will also be hungry to show why he deserves a big-money move to a Champions League challenger.
Immobile has scored 123 Serie A goals in five seasons at Lazio and warmed up for this tournament by scoring in the Azzurri’s 4-0 friendly triumph over the Czech Republic
He declared: “I want to thank my mother for giving me the sense of how to be in the right place at the right time.”
