Having scored more than 100 international goals and won a major trophy for his country in the form of Euro 2016, Ronaldo has undoubtedly cemented his place among the world's best footballers of all time.
The 36-year-old, despite all he has achieved, will be desperate for his country to retain the title five years on from their triumph in France, and could also potentially be eyeing a number of individual records, just as he has throughout his fantastic career.
One record looks certain to be broken by the former Real Madrid talisman, who needs only a single appearance at the competition – which he is destined to get – to become the only player in history to have played in five Euro tournaments.
Lothar Matthaus and Peter Schmeichel are among the 17 players who have appeared in four editions of the competition, along with Ronaldo, but A Selecao's captain will soon be out in front on his own should he stay fit between now and his country's first game.
Another milestone the Juve man might back himself to achieve is the most finals goals, with Ronaldo needing to only score once at Euro 2020 to become the leading goalscorer in the history of the tournament. He is currently tied on nine strikes with France legend Michel Platini.
Should he feature in all three of Portugal's group stage games, Ronaldo will also be the man with the most appearances at the Euros, qualifying games included, as he is currently two shy of Gianluigi Buffon's record of 58.
If he were to strike four goals in a single match, Ronaldo would become the only player to have done so in the tournament's history, while he would also be the oldest player to score in a final should he do so if Portugal go the distance. The current holder of that record is Bernd Holzenbein, who was 30 years and 103 days old when he scored in the 1976 final for West Germany.
On 11 July, the day of the final this year, Ronaldo will be 36 years and 156 days, but will Fernando Santos' star-studded A Selecao get that far? Make your predictions in the comments section below!
