Most of these appearances have been for Real Madrid. Iker Casillas is followed by Cristiano Ronaldo who made 166 appearances in the UEFA.
Growth of UEFA.

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is the administrative body for association football in Europe and parts of Asia. It is one of the six confederations of FIFA, the global governing body for football. Since its founding in June 1954, the number of national associations in UEFA grew from 25 to 55.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the player with most final game goals in the UEFA Champions League.

As of 2019, Ronaldo has scored four goals in final games in matches in the UEFA Champions League. Despite his success as a football player, or maybe exactly because of it, Ronaldo’s fandom in the United Kingdom (UK) is questionable. According to a survey carried out in 2018, approximately 17 percent of people in UK identify as Ronaldo fans and 39 percent as haters. In contrast, 40 percent of the respondents identify as Lionel Messi fans and just 11 percent as haters.
