Football icon Cristiano Ronaldo is growing stronger not only at the club level but also at the international level. Indeed, Cristiano Ronaldo had a huge impact when he donned the Portuguese shirt and led his team from the front during the UEFA Euro 2020 debut match against Hungary on Tuesday at Budapest’s Ferenc Puskás stadium.
Cristiano Ronaldo made history on Tuesday in the Euro 2020 Group F match against Hungary. The Portugal captain scored twice to become Europe’s all-time top scorer with 11 goals. Ronaldo played a crucial role in Portugal’s 3-0 win over Hungary and started his title defense on a positive note.
Ahead of the match, Ronaldo was tied with Michel Platini’s tally of 9 goals in the European championship. After fighting for almost 80 minutes in the game, Ronaldo managed to score a penalty in the 87th minute to accomplish the great feat. A few minutes later, Ronaldo scored a beautiful goal in injury time to increase his count advantage and seal the match for Portugal at the big stage.
Besides this ‘CR7’ also boasts some other achievements in this competition. He also holds the record for participation in the most UEFA European Cups (5) and, at the same time, he is also the first player to score in five consecutive European finals and when it comes to scoring goals at the highest level, Cristiano Ronaldo is now the all-time top scorer for Portugal with 106 goals to his name.
Portugal will soon face Germany and France in Group F, which is referred to as the death group with three football heavyweights in the same spot.
