Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes The First Player To Score Against 40 Different Countries

Ronaldo reaches 93 international goals scores against 40th nation

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo took his global goals tally to 93 when he scored four times to give the European champions a 5-1 win away to Lithuania in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Tuesday.

Juventus superstar Ronaldo also took his worldwide record to 93 goals after scoring his eighth hat-trick for Fernando Santos' Portugal.

The four goals also took Ronaldo's tally with Portugal to eight in 2019, with two more global breaks upon us in October and November.

Ronaldo feels Portugal - in second spot and holding a game in hand - are closing in on a place at next year's showpiece tournament.

After back-to-back draws to start their campaign, Portugal recorded much-needed wins over Serbia and Lithuania. The top two sides in each group qualify for Euro 2020, though Portugal has the safety net of being a Nations League group victor (it won the whole competition) and has at the very least secured a playoff berth if required.

He scored an early penalty, before Vytautas Andriuskevicius equalised.

The Juventus forward has scored eight hat-tricks for his country over the years, which includes tonight's magnificent display against a helpless Lithuania. The reigning European champions brace for next month's qualifiers at home against Luxembourg and at Ukraine.
