Scoring a hat trick in the first game of a tournament is as good a start as can be expected of any forward with aspirations to finish as top scorer. Brazil’s Richarlison did it against Germany in his team’s opening match.
Along with Spain’s Marco Asensio and French veteran Andre-Pierre Gignac, the Brazilian was among the oddsmakers’ pre-tournament favorites to finish as the leading scorer in the competition, but younger talents are sure to emerge as well. Argentine forward Adolfo Gaich and Brazilian Matheus Cunha (both 22) are also pre-tournament candidates to top the charts. But Cunha didn’t do himself any favors by watching the goalkeeper save his penalty-kick attempt.
The table below will be updated with the latest goal-scorer rankings after every matchday in the men’s football tournament (Note: there have already been two own goals scored on the opening matchday):
