David Villa: one goal per game

As we said, David Villa has secured the title of top scorer at Euro 2008 without having played in the final.

But that is the fewest goals for a European Championship top scorer since 1992, when Dennis Bergkamp, Tomas Brolin, Henrik Larsen and Karl-Heinz Riedle all scored three goals.

Villa was a good finisher and was alreay in good form before the tournament start.

may be we need bigger EURO tournaments with 24 teams, that when we will see more goals.

But anyway, I do not think anyone will ever match Platini's 9 goals again.
