Euro 2020: Ronaldo Makes Euros History As Portugal Beat Hungary

Cristiano Ronaldo set a new goals record in European Championship history as Portugal scored three goals in the last ten minutes to ease past Hungary in their Group F opener.

Ronaldo scored a late penalty and a fine effort in added time to move to eleven goals in Euros history.

He’d been tied on nine goals with France legend Michel Platini.

He’s also just four goals away from breaking the international goals record with the brace against Hungary taking him to 106 goals for Portugal.

A determined rear guard action from the Hungarians who were playing in front of a capacity home crowd at the Puskas Stadium was upended when Raphael Guerreiro’s strike inside the box took a wicked deflection into the far corner of the net in the 84th-minute.

A previously impenetrable defence then wilted as the hosts conceded a spot-kick moments later after Rafa Silva was fouled in the box.

The 36-year-old Ronaldo stepped up to score a historic effort, before making even more history as he exchanged a one two with Silva before rounding the goalkeeper to tap into an empty net.
