Cristiano Ronaldo became the greatest goalscorer in the history of the European Championship finals after netting a brace in Portugal's 3-0 win against Hungary on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old had been level with Michel Platini on nine goals ahead of Euro 2020 but overtook the France great after scoring a penalty in the 87th minute. He then added another goal in stoppage time as he bagged his 106th international goal.All three of Portugal's goals came in an eight-minute blitz late on, with Raphaël Guerreiro's deflected shot breaking the deadlock in the 84th minute.The Portuguese superstar, who had been quiet for much of the game, also became the first man to play in five European Championship finals, having made his debut back in 2004."The important thing was to win. It was a difficult game, against an opponent who defended very well, but we scored three goals and I am very grateful to the team for helping me to score two goals," Ronaldo said after the game.

Full stadium The sight of football supporters packed to the rafters in a stadium has been a scarcity since the pandemic began but the game in Budapest, Hungary, was played in front of a huge crowd with UEFA projecting more than 60,000 fans at the Puskas Arena. Those in attendance had to meet specific requirements before entering the stadium, with Hungarian residents needing evidence of immunity and international fans requiring a negative Covid-19 test or proof of full vaccination. The Hungarian capital is the only venue in this year's tournament to be allowed a full stadium after local authorities relaxed social distancing measures in favor of the entry requirements. According to the World Health Organization, Hungary recorded 782 confirmed cases of Covid-19 last week, with 50 deaths.
