Ronaldo Is The Greatest Goalscorer Throughout The Entire Existence Of The European Championship Finals
Cristiano Ronaldo became the greatest goalscorer throughout the entire existence of the European Championship finals in the wake of scoring a brace in Portugal’s 3-0 win against Hungary on Tuesday June 15.
The incredible goalscorer had been on level with Michel Platini on nine goals ahead of Euro 2020, yet surpassed the France top player after scoring a penalty in the 87th minute in the game against Hungary.
Minutes after that goal, he added another one in stoppage time as he packed away his 106th international goal.
Every one of the three of Portugal’s goals arrived in an eight-minute rush late on, with Raphaël Guerreiro’s redirected shot breaking the gridlock in the 84th minute.
The Portuguese hotshot, now becomes the first man to play in five European Championship finals, having made his first appearance back in 2004.
Hungary played in front of 55,662 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.
