9 – Cristiano Ronaldo's strike against Wales took him level with Platini as the joint-top scorer in UEFA European Championship history, the Portugal captain also becoming the first player to score in four separate EUROs against Hungary.

18 years and 328 days – Portugal's Renato Sanches became the youngest player to appear in a EURO final, beating Ronaldo after he featured in the UEFA EURO 2004 decider aged 19 years and 150 days.

21 – Ronaldo again, setting a new benchmark for EURO finals appearances during the group stage and adding another four outings to that number during the knockout phase to leave his record at 21.

27 – saves pulled off by Hannes Halldórsson, the Iceland No1 leading the way among goalkeepers by denying the opposition more than five times per match on average.

32.8 – The paciest player at UEFA EURO 2016 was Kingsley Coman, the France forward being measured at 32.8km/h to outstrip Belgium livewire Yannick Carrasco (32.3km/h).

40 years and 86 days – Gábor Király gave hope to fortysomethings in jogging bottoms everywhere: establishing a new record for the oldest player to contest a EURO finals game, Hungary's 'Pyjama Man' eventually bowing out in the round of 16 loss to Belgium.

41 – Portugal's final triumph against France was their first victory against Les Bleus in 41 years, since Nené and Marinho pounced in a 2-0 win at the Parc des Princes.

56 – France's final defeat was their first loss in a major tournament fixture on home soil in 56 years, their previous reverse a 2-0 defeat by Czechoslovakia in the third-place play-off in 1960.

66.67 – Only two-thirds of the penalties awarded during regulation time in France were converted, Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Aleksandar Dragović and Mesut Özil all failing to register – the lowest success rate since 1972, when one of two were scored.

100 – Robert Lewandowski netted just 100 seconds into Poland's quarter-final with Portugal, notching the second-quickest goal in EURO history after Dmitri Kirichenko's effort for Russia against Greece in 2004 (67 seconds).

108 – A total of 108 goals were rattled in at UEFA EURO 2016 over 51 games, at a rate of 2.12 per match and one every 44 minutes – down from 2.45 at UEFA EURO 2012.

600 – Nani's opener against Iceland may not have been enough to give Portugal victory in their Group F curtain-raiser, but it represented the 600th goal registered at a EURO finals.
