Dimitri Payet

(France - 2 goals, 1 assist)

Current odds: 18-1 Pre-tournament odds: 66-1

After lighting up the opening night of the tournament with a 20-yard strike against Romania which blended elegance and ferocity, Payet was quickly heralded as Les Bleus' knight in shining armour. He went quiet against Ireland but is deadly from the set-piece, and that makes his large odds an attractive proposition.

Mario Gomez

(Germany - 2 goals, 0 assists)

Current odds: 10-1 Pre-tournament odds: 33-1

The world champions' poacher up front has his work cut out from now on in, with games against Italy and France to negotiate just to reach the final. However, against both Northern Ireland and Slovakia he's shown an ability to pop up where it matters. If the Germans get a sniff against Italy, they'll hope it is Gomez who picks up the scent.

Graziano Pelle

(Italy - 2 goals, 0 assists)

Current odds: 18-1 Pre-tournament odds: 50-1

A theme is developing at this European Championship: Italy wear teams down, sneak a goal, stay resilient for 90 minutes, counter attack in injury time and Pelle smashes home a volley. He did it against Belgium, he did it against Spain; can he do it against Germany? And if Italy beat Germany Pelle can add golden boot with Euro trophy.

Romelu Lukaku

(Belgium - 2 goals, 0 assists)

Current odds: 8-1 Pre-tournament odds: 20-1

It's been an odd tournament for the Everton forward, who suffered from a bout of trampoline touch in his opener against Italy but turned clinical against Ireland. In last 16, Lukaku was starved of service by his Belgium team-mates for 75 minutes, was substituted and had barely had time to pull on a tracksuit top when Eden Hazard laid on a tap-in.
