Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
Cristiano Ronaldo went crazy with the Portugal national team which successfully crushed Luxembourg 6-0 in the 2024 European Cup Qualification.
Ronaldo appeared impressive by scoring two goals to help Portugal win a landslide victory at the Radu Marian Petrescu Stadium, Romania, Monday (27/3) early morning WIB.
Portugal opened the scoring through Ronaldo’s beautiful goal in the 9th minute. The Al Nassr star used a back heel to complete Nuno Mendes’ header in front of goal.
Ronaldo again proved himself not exhausted through another beautiful goal in the 31st minute. Receiving Bruno Fernandes’ through ball, Ronaldo calmly struck the ball into the left corner of the goal to beat Anthony Moris.
Ronaldo looked increasingly eager to score a hat-trick to extend his goalscoring record in international matches, but his ambition could not be realized because he was withdrawn in the 65th minute.
Besides Ronaldo, Portugal’s four other goals were scored by Joao Felix, Bernardo Silva, Otavio and Rafael Leao.
Selecao das Quinas could have widened the lead if Rafael Leao was able to carry out his duties as the penalty taker in the 85th minute.
