European Golden Shoe 2023/24 Standings

European Golden Shoe 2023/24 Standings: The UEFA Golden Boot is an award given every year to the top goal scorer in European football. It’s only given to players who play in the highest divisions of football leagues in UEFA member countries. The strength of the league they play in is also considered, and the goals are multiplied by a country factor for ranking purposes.

The award was first introduced in 1968 by a French magazine called France Football. It was given to the player who scored the most goals in league matches during a season, without considering the number of games played or the strength of the league.

In 1987, a Romanian player Rodion Cămătaru won the trophy with 44 goals. He surpassed the previous record of 39 goals set by Austria’s Anton Polster by scoring 21 goals in his last six league games. However, it was later revealed that Cămătaru’s victory was achieved through manipulation, and the award was given to Polster instead.

There was a gap in awarding the prize between 1991 and 1996. In 1991, Darko Pančev was declared the winner with 34 goals, but the Cyprus Football Union protested, claiming that the top scorer in the Cypriot league had scored 40 goals. However, it turned out that the top two goal scorers in the league had only scored 19 goals each. In 2006, Pančev was retrospectively given a Golden Boot for 1991.

Since 1997, the award has been given by the European Sports Media Association (ESM), and they use a points system that considers the different strengths of European leagues based on the UEFA five-year ranking.
