The Portuguese national team opened their efforts to defend the European Cup title with a victory. Portugal got a 3-0 win over Hungary in their inaugural Group F match. Raphael Guerreiro scored one goal with the addition of a pair from Cristiano Ronaldo.
A pair of goals scored by CR7 made him the best player in the match, as well as setting a record as the first player to score ten goals in the European Cup. Cristiano surpassed the record previously held by Michel Platini with the French national team.
The success was followed by a press conference that the Juventus player lived after the match. At that time, CR’s actions received high attention. The player with the number 7 jersey removed two bottles of Coca Cola on the table, which were part of the tournament sponsorship.
According to a report from Marca, Cristiano Ronaldo’s actions had a significant impact on Coca Cola’s shares. After the press conference took place, Coca Cola’s stock price fell from US$56.10 to US$55.22.
The decline also has an impact on the value of the company. This value decreased from 242 billion US Dollars to 238 billion US Dollars.
At the time of writing, Coca Cola stock has a price of 55.41 US Dollars per share.
