Spain duo Miguelín and Mario Rivillos shared the adidas Golden Shoe for top scorer at UEFA Futsal EURO 2016 after five players finished on six goals.

Ricardinho led Spain's Alex, Serbia's Mladen Kocić, Kazakhstan's Serik Zhamankulov by one goal at the start of Saturday's fixtures but was not in action due to Portugal's quarter-final elimination, leaving him stuck on six. Zhamankulov struck in the third-place play-off against Serbia, although he still trailed Ricardinho having played more matches.

Alex was the first new leader when he got a goal in the final against Russia, but then Miguelín, with two, and Rivillos, who struck twice and managed an assist, overtook their team-mate. As the top two cannot be split on any of the criteria, they share the Golden Shoe. Alex receives the Silver Shoe and Ricardinho the Bronze Shoe.

Ricardinho finished as overall top scorer for the competition, including qualifying, with 11 goals. Qualifying top scorer Mykola Bilotserkivets got eight goals in getting Ukraine to the finals but missed out on a place in Belgrade due to injury.

Golden Shoe: Miguelín & Mario Rivillos (Spain) 6 goals, 4 assists (5 games)
Silver Shoe: Alex (Spain) 6 goals, 2 assists (5 games)

Bronze Shoe: Ricardinho (Portugal) 6 goals, 0 assists (3 games)
