EURO 2020: Cristiano Ronaldo and his Historical Records
Cristiano Ronaldo becomes the highest goal scorer at the European Championship as Portugal beat stubborn Hungary 3 – 0.
History is certainly counting in his favour here, as the only player in the history of the tournament to score in five consecutive European Championship tournaments.
The Juventus star netted a penalty and scored another against Hungary on Tuesday night to ensure more records are added to his extensive collection.
Cristiano Ronaldo now stands alone as the all-time record goalscorer at European Championships, after also becoming the first player to feature at five finals tournaments in Portugal’s 3-0 win over Hungary in Budapest on Tuesday.
The Juventus forward has represented his country at every Euros since Portugal hosted the tournament in 2004, and he remains the talisman of the reigning champions 17 years later.
Ronaldo added several records to his impressive individual collection of honours on Tuesday, becoming the top scorer in Euros history when he netted his 10th goal in the competition with a late penalty, which was followed by his 11th in stoppage time.
Cristiano Ronaldo has also become the oldest player to score 2+ goals in a European Championship match, taking the record from Andriy Shevchenko, who was 35 years 256d when he scored a brace against Sweden for Ukraine in 2012.
