Cristiano Ronaldo is not just regarded as one of the greatest footballers ever, but one of the best athletes of all time as his unrivalled goalscoring record only distances itself further from the rest of the world year on year. His supreme natural talent partnered with his undying work rate has preserved him at the top level for almost two decades. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner now boasts over 700 goals in his legendary career and 18 of those have come at international tournaments.
After his brace against Hungary in Portugal’s group opener and a further goal against Germany, Ronaldo propelled himself to becoming the top scorer in European Championship history with 12 and still counting. This takes him clear of Michel Platini who previously held the record with nine, which he scored in one tournament at Euro 1984.
We take a look at how Ronaldo's record compares to other greats on continents around the world.
