Ronaldo set his new record as he scored his 10th in the European Championship finals, APA reports.

Portuguese national football team captain Cristiano Ronaldo has become the all-time top scorer in the history of the European Championship, following the penalty during his team's opening match against Hungary Euro 2020.

The penalty, which Ronaldo scored mere minutes before the end of the game, became his 10th goal in the European Championship finals, with said goals being made by the football ace during the five tournaments starting in 2004.

The previous record, nine goals, was set by Michel Platini, a French former football player who is regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time.
