He prepared for this edition with two goals as Portugal defeated Ireland 3-0 in their final warm-up matches.

“It is really incredible that at his age he is so dangerous and fruitful in every game. He really showed his qualities,” Hasek said. «I take my hat off to him, he is one of the best of all time.»

Ronaldo was the top scorer at Euro 2020 with five goals, the same as Czech forward Patrik Schick, who also played on Tuesday. Ronaldo previously scored against the Czech Republic in the 2008 and 2012 editions of the tournament.
