The striker achieved the performance during his team’s opening match against Hungary on Tuesday in the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament (3-0). The 36-year-old player scored two goals in the match.
He also became the first player ever to score at five European Championships, having struck at the 2020, 2016, 2012, 2008 and 2004 editions of the tournament.
