Euro 2012 Top Russian Scorer - Roman Shirokov

Shirokov is one I've been touting for quite a while on Twitter and mentioned him on the blog the other week. I mentioned that a good angle to approach the goal scorer markets from was betting top individual country scorers and Roman Shirokov is the best bet (along with Pedro for Spain if a starter and possibly Walters for Ireland) of the tournament for me in this market.

16's when I got on him, he is still available at great value 14/1 in a few books and this price may go quickly after he struck another brace tonight v Italy. A huge danger with his late runs into the box, sharp eye for goal and finishing ability, Shirokov is a regular scorer for both club and country. Four goals in recent friendlies for Russia and Irish fans may remember he netted the winner against us in the 3-2 deafeat at the Aviva. He also scored five goals in the Champions League from midfield for Zenit this year, including braces against Benfica and Porto. Competition for places up front may also mean less game time for his competition.

Recommended bet: Roman Shirokov top Russian scorer @ 14/1 (general)
