Although they were knocked out early in the Round of 16 against Belgium (1-0), the Portuguese team still relied on CR7 to get out of the group of death.

Cristiano Ronaldo might have shared the record with Zlatan Ibrahimovic if the Swede wasn’t injured before the competition, so the Portuguese is the sole holder of the record.
