Cristiano's latest international exploits leave him two goals away from 100
Portugal breezed to a 6-0 victory over Lithuania on Thursday evening, with Cristiano Ronaldo's latest hat-trick leaving him just two goals shy of a century at international level.
Having been in the headlines for his reaction to being substituted in Juventus' recent match against AC Milan, Ronaldo responded in the perfect manner by putting Lithuania to the sword in clinical fashion.
It was his ninth international hat-trick since making his debut for Portugal which gives him 98 goals in 163 games. With 60 coming in qualifying matches, 17 in friendlies, 9 at European Championships, 7 at World Cups, 2 in the Confederations Cup, and 3 in the Nations League.
Now has his sights set on Ali Daei's international goalscoring record of 109 goals in 149 appearances.
