Cristiano Ronaldo breaks another record

Cristiano Ronaldo made European Championship history on two fronts as Portugal staged a late show to begin their campaign with a 3-0 win over Hungary.

The 36-year-old became the top scorer in men's European Championship history as Portugal beat Hungary in front of more than 60,000 fans in Budapest. Ronaldo converted an 87th-minute penalty for his 10th goal in the competition, overtaking France's Michel Platini on nine goals.

His 11th came only a few minutes later when he took the ball around goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi for Portugal's third. Portugal had taken the lead 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.

Though arguably even greater than that is the fact Ronaldo is now just four behind Ali Daei's world record of 109 international goals, the Iranian scoring those in a 13-year period from 1993.
