Cristiano Ronaldo overtakes Luis Figo to become Portugal's most-capped player

became Portugal’s leading appearance maker when he was 
named in the starting XI to face Austria at Euro 2016.
The Real Madrid forward, 31, edged ahead of Luis Figo as he collected his 128th cap in the goalless draw.
It certainly was not one to remember for the former Manchester United winger – he missed a number of opportunities, including a second-half penalty, while he had a goal ruled out for offside.
A goal at this tournament would make him the first player to score at four European Championship finals – a feat that could also be achieved by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But Ronaldo’s record-breaking milestone is just another record to his name, and he boasts 58 goals for his country – also a record, ahead of Pauleta.
