Højlund hit the ground running with a hat-trick against Finland on the opening night of qualifying and then added two more to his tally in the 3-2 defeat by Kazakhstan. Just one goal behind his tally is the familiar name of Cristiano Ronaldo, who struck twice in each of Portugal's convincing victories over Liechtenstein and Luxembourg and now has 122 international goals to his name. Perhaps more unexpectedly, Scott McTominay is also on four goals having found the net twice as Scotland saw off Cyprus 3-0 and Spain with a famous 2-0 triumph.
