Ronaldo rewrites Euro record book

-

Cristiano Ronaldo set the record for most career goals at the European Championsh­ip on Tuesday.

The Portugal great scored from the penalty spot in the 87th minute and then added another in injury time to give the defending champions a 3-0 victory over Hungary.

The Juventus forward was playing in his fifth European Championsh­ip, dating back to Euro 2004. He entered this year’s edition even with Michel Platini at nine goals, but that only lasted 87 minutes.

The 36-year-old Ronaldo also became the only player to score at five consecutiv­e European Championsh­ips.

Portugal defender Raphael Guerreiro scored the opening goal in the 84th minute.

In Munich, Mats Hummels scored an own goal and France beat Germany 1-0.

The experience­d defender was attempting to stop Lucas Hernandez’s cross from reaching France forward Kylian Mbappe when he diverted the ball into his own net in the 20th minute.

Note: The passing stats below were tallied during competitiv­e seven-on-seven, 11-on-11 periods only.

CAM NEWTON: 9/17, INT

MAC JONES: 17/25, 2 INTs

JARRETT STIDHAM: 5/8
