A whole Lotta goals
 Women's Football News 29 Jul 2013
A whole Lotta goals - 29 Jul 2013 - Women's Football NewsSweden striker Lotta Schelin carried off the Golden Boot at the end of the Euro 2013 Finals following her haul of five goals in five games. 
The host nation's chances of finishing as European Champions ended in the semi finals when they were beaten 1-0 by Germany but the 29-year-old, who was the poster girl for the tournament, lived up to her billing and also contributed two assists on top of her goal tally.
Schelin's team mate, defender Nilla Fischer, took the Silver Boot with three goals and French playmaker Louisa Necib, who was one of 12 players to find the net twice, was the winner of the Bronze Boot due to her two assists, plus she was also on the pitch for 30 minutes less than her nearest rival, team mate Eugenie Le Sommer.
Schelin's tally of five was the second highest for a Finals in the tournament's history, one behind Inka Grings who scored six times for Germany in 2009, including a brace in the Final against England.
In the tournament overall, including the qualifying groups (in which Schelin did not play as Sweden were hosts), Celia Okoyino da Mbabi netted a record 19 times, two of which came in the Finals. The German striker finished comfortably ahead of Veronica Boquete and Margret Lara Vidarsdottir who scored 12 apiece.
There was no change to the top three in the all time scorers list (including qualifying) with Birgit Prinz' total of 40 goals leading the way from Italian duo Carolina Morace and Patrizia Panico, with 37 and 34 respectively.
It was a bumper record for attendances as well in the tournament, with over 200,000 having watched the 25 matches. The attendance for the Final of 41,301 with the highest in the tournament's history, beating the previous record of 29,092 who watched England beat Finland 3-2 at the (then named) City of Manchester Stadium in 2005.
