Cristiano Ronaldo continues to break records, becomes player with most assists in UEFA Euro

Ronaldo earlier became the first player to compete in six European Championship competitions on Tuesday, leading Portugal to a 2-1 victory against the Czech Republic

Cristiano Ronaldo created yet another record on Saturday, becoming the top assist giver in Euros history (since 1968), as he set up Bruno Fernandes to score in Portugal’s 3-0 win over Turkey in UEFA Euro 2024. The Selecao, who were already up 2-0 at halftime thanks to a Bernardo Silva strike and an own goal by Samet Akaydin, extended their advantage to 3-0 when Ronaldo decided to pass to Bruno in the 56th minute despite having a fair chance to create yet another history.

This was his first assist in this edition of the competition, bringing his total to the joint-highest in its history, alongside Karel Poborský. With 14 goals, the 39-year-old is already the leading scorer in the Euros. Ronaldo earlier became the first player to compete in six European Championship competitions on Tuesday, leading Portugal to a 2-1 victory against the Czech Republic in their first encounter.
