Cristiano Ronaldo added another record to his list after becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in European Championship qualifiers

The 34-year-old scored a whopping four goals as Portugal routed Lithuania 5-1 in Euro 2020 qualifying to take his tally all the way up to 25 goals.

It moved the Juventus superstar ahead of Robbie Keane, who netted 23 goals in European qualifying during his international career for the Republic of Ireland.

Keane had even jokingly begged the Portugalย starย to leave this record with him, writing on Instagram: “I think you have enough records @cristiano.”

But within seven minutes Ronaldo had his first of the night from the penalty spot before adding three further goals to take his overall international tally to 93.

Ronaldo further strengthened his position as Europe’s all-time leading international scorer, with footballing great Ferenc Puskas nine behind.

It was also Ronaldo’sย eighth international hat-trick for the reigning European champions andย Nations League winners.
