RONALDO EQUALS PLATINI’S EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP GOAL RECORD
Cristiano Ronaldo is one goal away from becoming the all-time top scorer in the European Championship.
The Real Madrid forward scored the opener in Portugal’s semi-final against Wales which moves him on nine goals overall since making his tournament debut at Euro 2004.
And he’s now level with France’s Michel Platini, who scored all nine of his goals at Euro 1984.
Ronaldo is also the first player to find the net in four different European Championships and has played 20 games at the tournament – the most of any player in history.
The 31-year-old is also the first player to appear in three European Championship semi-finals.
