Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo in action (Reuters)
Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo broke the record for the number of appearances at European Championship finals when he started his 17th game against Hungary in their Group F clash on Wednesday.
Ronaldo, who set Portugal's all-time appearance record in internationals with his 128th cap in their last Euro 2016 match against Austria, moved ahead of former France defender Lilian Thuram and ex-Netherlands goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar on 16.
Ronaldo could also become the first player to score at four European Championship finals. He is already the record scorer, with a total of 26 goals, at Euro finals and in qualifying.
