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.

They say " jealous makes me nasty" we can't compare CR7 and Messi, well we all know that Messi failed to score a goal in world cup, but his competitor which is CR7 did at least score 4 goals and on the other hand Messi still struggle to win a trophy for his country at least CR7 is doing something better and last season he won a trophy for his country and Messi's side were knocked out. So to those who are jealous of CR7 please keep quiet ?.
