The Portuguese star added another record to his list of honors.

Portugal

superstar Cristiano Ronaldo became the top scorer in the competition's history with two goals he scored last night against Hungary in Budapest.

The Juventus striker has been in all competitions since the 2004 European Championships, which Portugal hosted, and now, after 17 years, he has managed to break the competition's scoring record. He broke several records during his football career, and last night, with his first goal, he reached a record of 10 goals and became the top scorer of the competition. He went on to score another goal and improve his record.

However, Ronaldo broke other records with two goals he scored last night in Budapest. At 36 years and 130 days, he became Portugal's oldest goalscorer in a major competition, breaking the record set by Pepe at the  2018 World Cup (35 years and 124 days).

Ronaldo also became the first player in history to play in five Euros. The Juventus star also became the oldest player to score two goals in a Euro game, breaking Andriy Schevchenko's record of 35 years and 256 days.

Also, with the other goal that Raphael Guerreiro scored at 84 minutes, Portugal became the first team to score three goals in the last 10 minutes of a Euro match.

Ronaldo has scored 106 goals in 176 national games and is only three goals away from the top international scorer of the all-time record, held by Iran's Ali Daei.
