The race to win the most valuable player of the ongoing Euro 2020 championship has already scaled the group stages as the boys have been separated from the men.
Each of the 16 teams that made it through to the knockout stage has the potential to win the trophy at the end of the competition and so also are their players winning the MVP award.
Italy, Belgium, and the Netherlands won all their group games while England, Sweden, Spain, and France progressed without losing a game in the process.
Also, some top players have begun to step up for their teams in terms of the number of goals scored in the tourney so far.
Cristiano Ronaldo currently tops the chart with five goals and one assist after three games while Patrik Schick (Czech Republic) Emil Forsberg (Sweden), Romelu Lukaku, Georgino Wijnaldum, and Robert Lewandowski have three goals each.
