adidas Golden Boot on offer at finals

Not only will players at the finals in Croatia be aiming to help their team to tournament victory but they will have a chance of individual glory in the race for the adidas Golden Boot.

Players at UEFA Futsal EURO 2012 will be aiming to help their team to tournament victory but they will also have a chance of individual glory in the race for the adidas Golden, Silver and Bronze Boots.

As in previous tournaments the adidas Golden Boot will be awarded to the top scorer, although in Croatia the prize will not be shared, with the Silver and Bronze boots being given to those finishing second and third. If two or more players are equal on goals scored, the following criteria will apply:

1) Higher number of assists:
• Player delivering the intentional pass, cross, header or shot leading to a goal
• Player shooting and ball rebounding from woodwork, goalkeeper or defender and entering the goal
• Player passing, shooting or crossing and leading to an own goal
• Only one assist per goal can be awarded
• No assist for player winning a penalty or a free-kick

2) Higher ratio of converted double (ten-metre) penalties
3) Higher ratio of converted (six-metre) penalties
4) Higher number of goals scored in fewer matches
5) Fair play record (red, yellow cards)
