Renato Sanches surpasses Ronaldo as youngest to play in Euro final

Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches has broken Cristiano Ronaldo's record as the youngest-ever player to feature in a European Championship final after being named in the starting lineup against France on Sunday.

At 18 years and 327 days, the Bayern Munich man is nearly a year younger than Ronaldo was when Portugal faced Greece in the Euro 2004 decider.

Earlier in the tournament, the former Benfica star also became the youngest player to play for the Portuguese national team at a major tournament -- another record that was once held by Ronaldo.

Sanches has marked his historic tournament run with a number of fine performances, which included the equalising goal in the quarterfinal against Poland.

Here are the complete lineups:

Portugal XI: Rui Patricio; Cedric, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro; Carvalho, Silva, Sanches, J. Mario; Nani, Ronaldo

France XI: Lloris; Evra, Umtiti, Koscielny, Sagna; Matuidi, Pogba, Payet, Sissoko; Griezmann, Giroud
