MADRID: The Euro 2020 campaign this time is a platform for Cristiano Ronaldo to become the all -time leading scorer on the international stage.
To realize that goal, the Portuguese captain must score six goals in this campaign.
Currently, the record for most international goals is held by Iranian football legend, Ali Daei who recorded 109 goals in 149 appearances with the national team.
