Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Another European Record

Ronaldo reaches 93 international goals scores against 40th nation Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo Scores 4 Goals in Portugal's Rout of Lithuania

Portugal beat Lithuania 5-1 in an away game in Euro 2020 qualifies on Tuesday when Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo scored 4 goals.

But within seven minutes Ronaldo had his first of the night from the penalty spot before adding three further goals to take his overall global tally to 93.

Playing in his 161st global, the 34-year-old notched his eighth hat-trick for his country and the 54th of his remarkable career to help Portugal through what had threatened to turn into a frustrating evening.

"I'm going through a good phase, but the team has been playing well too, " Ronaldo said. It moved to second place with eight points, five fewer than leader Ukraine. "I'm enjoying this moment not only because of my goals, but also because of the team's performances in recent years".

Cristiano Ronaldo has for over fifteen years cemented his position as one of the best players in the history of football, having dominated the soccer space alongside his arch rival Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo set up good chances for Felix and Bernardo Silva, which were wasted, after the break before taking matters into his own hands. "We are getting closer to our goal".

He responded: "As I said you look at these players the most remarkable thing about them is that they do it not just for two or three seasons, but through their whole career, season after season".

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star scored his 21st European qualifier goal for Portugal against Serbia last weekend.

Substitute David Turpel pulled one back and Serbia were on the ropes until Sergej Milinkovic-Savic produced a delightful reverse pass for Mitrovic to fire in the third.
