We report on the topological Hall effect (THE) in centrosymmetric EuO thin films. This THE signal persists down to the lowest temperature in the metallic region below 50 K for the films thinner than 200 nm. The signal rapidly disappears by tilting the applied magnetic field from surface normal, suggestive of noncoplanar spin configuration such as two-dimensional skyrmions. This observation possibly substantiates the theoretical proposal of magnetic skyrmions in 2D Heisenberg ferromagnets in marked contrast to better established B20-type chiral helimagnets.
