Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace for Portugal vs Hungary

Cristiano Ronaldo made yet more history on Tuesday evening in Portugal's Euro 2020 opener against Hungary.

The 36-year-old was in Portugal's starting lineup for the match in Budapest.

Portugal were the dominant team throughout but struggled to find a way past Péter Gulácsi.

Hungary's resolve was finally broken in the 83rd minute when Raphaël Guerreiro's effort deflected off a defender and into the net.

Portugal were given a golden opportunity to double their lead minutes later when Rafa was bundled over inside the box.

Ronaldo stepped up and he would make no mistake from 12 yards as he powered his spot-kick past Gulacsi.

That was Ronaldo's 10th goal in European Championships. With that strike, he become the first player to score 10 goals or more in the competition.

He also became the first player to score in five European Championships.

He managed to bag a second in stoppage time. The Juventus striker showed great composure inside the box to go past the goalkeeper and then convert into an empty net.

This man is just incredible. What a player.

Ronaldo has now scored 106 goals for Portugal and is just four goals away from surpassing Ali Daei as the highest-scoring player in international football history.
