Cristiano Ronaldo made history after leading Portugal to a 3-0 win over Hungary in their first match of the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament.

Not only did he break the hearts of Hungarians all over the world, but he also broke three records, including becoming the all-time highest goalscorer in the history of the European Championship.

His two goals in the final minutes of the match secured the win for Portugal, but also rallied him to surpass Michael Platini's record of being the all-time highest goalscorer of the European competition.

Platini stays at 9 goals while Ronaldo reaches 11 and will surely add to the tally in the upcoming fixture against Germany.

As if that wasn't enough, CR7 also became the first European to score in nine major tournaments. He's barely the second player in history to achieve this feat. Ghana's Asamoah Gyan was the first to gain the milestone.

Cristiano is now the oldest player to score two or more goals in a European Championship match, snatching the record from Andriy Shevchenko.

Shevchenko, current head coach of the Ukraine Men's National Team, set that record at 35 years and 256 days old with a brace in 2012 against Sweden. Ronaldo broke his record at 36 years and 130 days of age.

While Portugal defeated Hungary 3-0 with 3 goals in 8 minutes, the match was actually quite close. Hungary saw a goal ruled offside, and up until the 84th minute, it seemed it would be a draw.

Nevertheless, Cristiano Ronaldo managed to change the course of history with a brutal effort in the closing minutes of the match.

Will he repeat this performance against Germany?
