The Portugal captain, who was on the scoresheet in his side’s 4-2 over Serbia on the weekend, added four goals to his tally on Tuesday.

He has now scored 93 international goals overall, with 25 of them coming during qualifiers for Uefa European Championships – more than any other player in history.

With his Man of the Match performance on Tuesday, Ronaldo overtook Robbie Kean, who held the record with 23 goals in Euro qualifiers for Ireland.

The four goals also took Ronaldo’s tally with Portugal to eight in 2019, with two more international breaks coming in October and November.

Lithuania, meanwhile, became the 40th different nation Ronaldo has scored against.

The victory saw Portugal cement second place in Group B of the Euro 2022 qualifiers, with eight points from four games.

Not everyone can love you.this is proof of how a best footballer CR7 is than our Messi10.let's put aside our feelings and compare the facts CR7 is better than Lionel Messi in terms of his achievements .just that a lot of people love Messi. We must simply say that we love Messi but Ronaldo is the best.i think our judgement will be spot on concerning the 2 footballers. As South Africans let us learn to appreciate our own hero Percy Tau then we will have the best out of him.we faile to appreciate our stars who are better only because we are more focus on foreign stars.let us turn a blind eye on what they do and try to uplift our own players given our support they can even do better.
