Ronaldo sets five new records in 3-0 win over Hungary

Ronaldo sets yet another new record

Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the best player in footballing history.

Now 36-years-old, the Portuguese forward continues to send records tumbling, and finished top scorer in the Serie A in 2020-21, scoring 29 goals across the season.

And today he smashed through yet another record, becoming the top goalscorer in Euro championships history.

The penalty that he fired past Hungary’s Peter Gulasci was his 10th goal in the competition, and was enough to take him clear of Michel Platini, who netted nine times in his European Championship appearances.

More records tumble

In typical Ronaldo fashion however, he was not content just to break the record, netting a second goal just moments later to round off the victory.

This made him the oldest player to ever net a brace in a European Championship match, taking the mantle from the Ukraine’s Andriy Shevchenko, who scored in Euro 2012 at 35 years old.

It also made him the first player to net 11 goals at European Championships.

The strikes also took him to 106 international goals, just 3 behind Ali Daei, who sits on 109 international goals for Iran.

It is hard not to envisage Ronaldo breaking that record at this tournament, especially since Portugal are now close to making it out of the group stages.

If that wasn’t enough, he also became the first player to appear in five European Championship tournaments.

Still showing no signs of slowing down, Cristiano Ronaldo could well continue for several more years, and carry on setting records.
