Cristiano Ronaldo became the top scorer in men’s European Championship history as Portugal beat Hungary 3-0 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.
Few minutes later, the Juventus star came off the mark again when he took the ball around goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi for Portugal’s third and his 11th Euro goal.
Hungary did put on a resilient show against a star-studded Portuguese lineup. They went deeper and deeper into their half as the game progressed yet they conceded three times late on.
The deadlock was broken in the 84th minute 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.
Portugal got their fortunate opener soon afterwards before Ronaldo’s penalty after Willi Orban had fouled Rafa Silva.
Hungary stay in Budapest and will play France on Saturday before Portugal face Germany in Munich.
