Euro 2024: Record Breaker Cristiano Ronaldo scripts history with these records

While he has been unable to win the World Cup, Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has made the European Championship his own as part of an incredible international career.

Cristiano Ronaldo, a name synonymous with footballing greatness, is ready to write another chapter in his illustrious career as he leads Portugal into their opening match against Czechia at Euro 2024. While it may be his last dance, this tournament presents Ronaldo with a chance to further solidify his legendary status by adding to his already impressive collection of European Championship records and potentially breaking some new ones.

Records Cristiano Ronaldo holds in Euros

Most European championship (editions)

Ronaldo is the undisputed great, having participated in a record-breaking six European Championship tournaments. His journey began on home soil in 2004 and continues in Germany this year.

Most Tournaments with at least one goal

Consistency is Ronaldo’s middle name. He’s the only player to score in each of the last five Euros he’s participated in, showcasing his unwavering goal-scoring prowess. A goal at Euros 2024 will soar him up on the list.

Most Matches Played

With 26 appearances under his belt, Ronaldo is the Euro veteran with the most matches played. His debut against Greece marked the beginning of his Euro dominance.

Most Captain Appearance

Leading by example, Ronaldo has captained Portugal an impressive 16 times in the Euros, making him the captain with the most appearances in the competition’s history.

Most Goals

The ultimate record-breaker, Ronaldo sits atop the leaderboard with a staggering 14 goals scored across various European Championships. After him is Michel Platini with 9 goals for France.

Most Assists in Euros

While renowned for his scoring, Ronaldo has the chance to become the top playmaker in Euro history. He is just currently behind Karel Poborský (7 assists). Ronaldo has six assist and just one well-placed pass can etch his name in the record books.

Oldest Euros Goal-scorer

Time may be ticking, but Ronaldo can rewrite history. Ivica Vastic’s record of being the oldest scorer at 38 (set in 2008) is within reach. A single goal will see Ronaldo become the Euro’s oldest goal scorer at the age of 39.

Most Chances Created:

Another potential record awaits. With 41 chances created, Ronaldo trails Luis Figo (42) by a narrow margin. If Ronaldo is heavily involved in Portugal’s attack, he could surpass Figo and become the player with the most chances created in Euro history.
