Cristiano Ronaldo made history on Tuesday night with his two goals against Hungary.
11 goals may not sound like much, but when they have only been scored in the European Championship finals, then all of a sudden it becomes quite impressive .
The Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo wrote European Championship history on Tuesday night, when he scored his European Championship goal number ten and 11 in his career. Thus, he beat Michel Platini’s record, which Ronaldo shared with the Frenchman before the match.
Cristiano Ronaldo was able to score his tenth goal on penalty kick after 87 minutes of Tuesday’s European Championship match against Hungary. A handful of minutes after his first goal, he broke the record further as he brought Portugal to 3-0.
Already with a place in the starting lineup for Tuesday’s match, he broke another record. He became the first ever to play in five European Championship finals.
Ronaldo’s next goal is to break the record for most goals in international matches. With Tuesday’s two goals, he has 106 goals. That is three fewer than the record held by Iranian Ali Daei.
