Ronaldo hat-trick fires Portugal to brink of Euro 2020 qualification

Ronaldo hat-trick fires Portugal to brink of Euro 2020 qualification

If they beat the Lithuanians and, at the same time, in Belgrade, Serbia fail to beat Luxembourg, Portugal will seal second place in Group B and qualify for a competition in which they are the titleholders.

Ronaldo, who yet again proved his worth at worldwide level, was at the forefront of Portugal's 6-0 thrashing of Lithuania in a 2020 European Championship qualifier on Thursday night.

Ronaldo stopped the onrushing security to take a picture with the starstruck fan.

Shortly after Ronaldo completed Portugal's rout, a fan seized his chance and took to the pitch in a desperate attempt to be close to the Juventus forward.

With the strikes, Ronaldo has now scored 30+ goals for 13 years and reached a landmark of 98 goals on worldwide stages.

Meanwhile Ronaldo's team-mate Bruno Fernandes added that Ronaldo netting a hat-trick was nothing out of the ordinary.

The 34-year-old picked up the ball outside the area and unleashed a lovely long ranged effort that bent past Ernestas Setkus in the Lithuania net.

Portugal's Gonçalo Paciencia celebrates after scoring a goal to Lithuania during the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier soccer match at Algarve Stadium in Faro, Portugal, 14 November 2019.

The hat-trick was the ideal way to respond after a hard week for the Portugal captain who was subbed off in Juventus' last two games.

Ronaldo's ninth Portugal hat-trick - with seven of those coming since his 30th birthday - takes him to within 11 goals of Iran legend Ali Daei's world-record 109.

"Good team win! We are one step closer!"

Ukraine are guaranteed top spot in Group B and the "Selecção" are now locked in a battle with Serbia for second place.
