Cristiano Ronaldo has broken yet another record after scoring a penalty for Portugal in their Euro 2020 clash against France.

The 36-year-old stepped up to the mark in Budapest after Hugo Lloris' fist clashed with Danilo during a contest from a free kick.

With the referee awarding a penalty, the Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus icon smashed the ball into the bottom-left corner for the lead.

And it means that Ronaldo, who is now on 107 goals for his country, has broken another record in his illustrious career.

The forward is now the all-time top European scorer in major tournaments, making it 13 at the European Championships and seven at World Cup tournaments.

It also means that he is closing in on the record for the most international goals by one player across all matches.

Making it 108 goals in 178 appearances for Portugal, he is just one behind Iranian hero Ali Daei.

Ronaldo now has four for the tournament, slotting twice in the last five minutes against Hungary in the opening game.

While he opened the scoring in what ended up being a 4-2 defeat to Germany at the Allianz Arena.

Ronaldo's strike against France, though, was not enough to take Portugal into a half-time lead.

Kylian Mbappe's clash with Nelson Semedo saw the referee point to the spot for the World Cup champions, with Karim Benzema smashing into the net.

CR7's latest record comes just a week after the 3-0 win over Hungary made him the most successful player at the Euros ever.
