    Cristiano Ronaldo was in terrific form as Portugal demolished Lithuania 5-1. The 34-year-old scored four goals to take his international tally to 93 goals

    The Juventus forward has now scored eight hat-tricks for his country over the 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.

    The Juventus star is currently on international duty with Portugal, who he helped on Tuesday, September 10, cruise to a 5-1 victory against Lithuania in their Euro 2020 qualifier.

    Playing in his 161st international match, Ronaldo struck four times to inspire Portugal through what had threatened to turn into a frustrating evening.

    The 34-year-old opened the scoring from the spot inside seven minutes of play, before striking three times in a space of 15 minutes in the second half.

    Midfielder William Carvalho completed the rout in stoppage time, with Vytautas Andriuškevičius’ 28th minute goal turning out to be a mere consolation for the hosts.

    Despite Portugal’s outstanding performance, it was Ronaldo’s sensational goalscoring form that stole the headlines. The former Real Madrid’s four goals saw him become the first European player to score 90+ international goals.

    The remarkable feat has taken him a total of 160 games to achieve, with the Lithuania tie being his 161st. The goals at LFF Stadium also mean the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has now scored against 40 different countries – a milestone no other footballer has matched.
