Euro 2024: Cristiano Ronaldo set for record-setting sixth tournament

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo will set yet another record when he plays for Portugal at the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament in Germany.

The 39-year-old Al-Nassr forward is set to compete in a record sixth European Championship after being named in Roberto Martinez’s 26-man squad announced on Tuesday.
