Euro 2020 day 13: Ronaldo equals record as Germany set up England tie

:Headline: Euro 2020 day 13: Ronaldo equals record as Germany set up England tie:
The group stage finished with drama and goals aplenty in both Group E and F.
Sports Mole

On a record-breaking night of European Championship football England discovered they would face Germany in the round of 16 while France, Portugal and Spain all showed their title credentials with Sweden continuing to prove a surprise package at the tournament.

With the four games across Group E and F producing 18 goals, it beat the previous best tally of goals in a single day at the finals which had been 14 back on June 21 of the 2000 edition.

Eight of them occurred in the 'Group of Death' with Hungary almost producing a huge shock before they were pegged back to a 2-2 draw by Germany with Leon Goretzka's strike six minutes from time enough to ensure Joachim Low has at least one more match in charge.

Goals from Adam Szalai and Andras Schafer had Hungary ahead and on course to reach the knock-out phase before their hearts were broken and with France and Portugal playing in Bucharest, the anguish of the crowd was audible when news filtered through of Germany's second goal.

Those at the Puskas Arena still got to witness history with Cristiano Ronaldo's two penalties equalling the record of most international goals by Iran great Ali Daei with the two men now level on 109.

A brace from Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, scoring for his country for the first time since 2015, saw France clinch top spot and it means the world champions take on Switzerland next while third-placed Portugal and Germany in second face hugely anticipated clashes with Belgium and England in the next round.

Stat of the day
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) - 109 goals
  • Ali Daei (Iran) - 109 goals
Quote of the day
“This was the 'group of death' and we managed to achieve the second spot and now we travel to England. It's great news to play in London at Wembley against England”
- Joachim Low
