Cristiano Ronaldo scored his ninth international hat-trick, moving to 98 goals for his country, as Portugal thumped Lithuania 6-0 in a Euro 2020 qualifier.
The Portugal captain, whose treble was the 55th of his career, could become only the second player to score a century for his country after Iran’s Ali Daei. Ronaldo showed no sign of the knee problem that led to him being substituted in his previous two games for Juventus – prompting an angry reaction on the second occasion. Pizzi, Gonçalo Paciência and Bernardo Silva shared the other goals in the one-sided Group B match.
