Ronaldo misses record but Dybala’s two wins it for Juve

Two goals from Paulo Dybala in the space of two minutes won the game for Juventus against Lokomotiv Moscow, but CR7 misses out on...

Cristiano Ronaldo was still a 19-year old boy when he played his first major tournament for Portugal, appearing at the 2004 UEFA Euro on home soil.

He got off to a great start scoring on his debut against Greece, but his best performance in the competition came in the semi-finals against the Netherlands when he noted a goal and assist, guiding his country to their first-ever final in a major international tournament.

They failed to win the title though, losing 1-0 to Greece in one of the biggest upsets in recent football’s history.
