Four-goal Ronaldo 'best in the world'Sports | REUTERS 12 Sep 2019
Cristiano Ronaldo took his international tally to 93 goals when he scored four times to give holders Portugal a 5-1 win over hosts Lithuania in their Euro 2020 qualifier.
Playing in his 161st international, the 34-year-old notched his eighth hat-trick for his country and the 54th of his career.
Unheralded midfielder William Carvalho completed the rout in stoppage time as Portugal stayed second in Group B with eight points, five behind leaders Ukraine with one game in hand.
Ronaldo converted an early penalty and then added three second-half goals. He also scored in the recent 4-2 win over Serbia.
"Ronaldo is the best player in the world, this is clear and unmistakable proof," Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.
