Manuel Neuer has set a major record today, becoming the goalkeeper with the most tournament appearances from a UEFA nation. When the whistle sounded at the start of Germany vs Hungary on Wednesday afternoon he surpassed Hugo Lloris’ total.

Neuer has now featured 17 times in the Euros – joint with Gianluigi Buffon – and 19 times in the World Cup, bringing his appearances to 36.

It marks yet another achievement for the German stalwart, who became his country’s most-capped player in a major tournament against Scotland, overtaking Philipp Lahm.
