Ronaldo breaks Euro qualifying goal record

Cristiano Ronaldo is “enjoying this moment” after scoring four times to lead Portugal to a 5-1 thrashing of Lithuania in Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday.

Ronaldo starred for the reigning European champions in the Group B clash in Vilnius, adding another record to his collection after becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in European Championship qualifiers.

It moved the Juventus superstar ahead of Robbie Keane, who netted 23 goals in European qualifying during his international career for the Republic of Ireland.

It took his international tally to 93 goals, further strengthening his position as Europe’s all-time leading international scorer, with footballing great Ferenc Puskas nine behind.

It was also Ronaldo’s eighth international hat-trick for the reigning European champions and Nations League winners.
