Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 10th and 11th goals in five European Championships and overtook Michel Platini as the competition’s all-time record scorer in a late 3-0 win for Portugal in Hungary. With it, Cristiano Ronaldo became the top scorer in men’s European Championship history.
The 36-year-old is also just three goals away from matching Iranian Ali Daei’s all-time international scoring record of 109.
Hungary had looked on course for an unlikely draw against the defending champions until they conceded three times late on.
The deadlock was broken in the 84th minute when Raphael Guerreiro’s shot with the outside of the foot took a massive deflection off defender Willi Orban to break Hungary’s brave resistance.
Hungary were mostly restricted to long-range shots straight at goalkeeper Rui Patricio. However, home substitute Szabolcs Schon thought he had scored when he squeezed a shot in at the near post, but the goal was correctly ruled out for offside.
The result looked comprehensive, but Portugal had to work hard to defeat their opponents in front of the biggest attendance of the tournament so far.
