Ronaldo breaks Euros goal record and becomes first player to feature at five finals tournaments

    162

    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.
