Euro 2024: Real Madrid’s Arda Guler breaks Ronaldo’s record in Turkey win

Turkey midfielder, Arda Guler, has broken Cristiano Ronaldo’s long-standing record to become the youngest player to score on their Euro debut.

The Real Madrid teenager scored from range to make it 2-1 in the second half.

The strike is easily a contender for Goal of the Tournament, as it left Georgian goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili clawing at thin air as the ball sailed into the top corner.

At 19 years and 114 days, Guler is now the youngest player to score on his debut at the tournament.

The record has been held by Cristiano Ronaldo until now, who netted at 19 years and 128 days at Euro 2004 in a defeat to Greece.
