Cristiano Ronaldo has held a record since Tuesday's match between Portugal and Hungary.

The Portuguese is the first player ever to play at five different European Championships.

The 36-year-old Ronaldo shared the record of four European Championship participations with sixteen other players.

Edwin van der Sar, who was under the bar at the European Championships in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008, is the only Dutchman on that list.

Ronaldo made his European Championship debut at the 2004 European Championship and then immediately scored in the opening game against the later overall winner Greece.

Later that tournament, he was also accurate in the semi-final that Portugal won 2-1 against the Dutch national team.

Ronaldo then also played at the European Championships in 2008, 2012 and 2016. In the latter tournament, he took the European title with Portugal, although the star player was injured early in the final.

With 21 matches, Ronaldo was already the player with the most European Championship matches to his name.

He also already held the record for the number of playing minutes (1,793).

There is a good chance that the Juventus attacker will set another special record this European Championship. He only needs one goal to become the European Championship all-time top scorer on his own. He now shares that record of nine goals with Frenchman Michel Platini.
