Set a record and score 4 goals Ronaldo I enjoyed this moment

Cristiano Ronaldo took one giant step closer to the men's all-time global goal record by scoring four more for Portugal in a 5-1 rout of Lithuania in Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday.

The result keeps Portugal in an automatic qualifying place, five points behind Group B leaders Ukraine.

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

But within seven minutes Ronaldo had his first of the night from the penalty spot before adding three further goals to take his overall worldwide tally to 93. At 1-1 in Lithuania, Ronaldo got fortunate to put Fernando Santos' men ahead.

"I'm having a good time, but the team was doing very well too", Ronaldo told reporters.

Casey ends five-year wait for title
Paul Casey warned anyone who would listen entering the final round of the European Open that he was the player to beat on Sunday. It was the second victory of the year for the 42-year-old Casey after lifting the trophy at the Valspar Championship on the U.S.

"I'm not only happy because of the goals I've scored, but also because of the level the national team has been at in recent years".

Lithuania, bottom with one point, missed an early chance when Vykintas Slivka fired over from close range and they quickly paid the price when Markus Palionis handled a Joao Felix cross and Ronaldo converted the penalty in the fifth minute. The ball ended up hitting him on the head and went into the goal.

Just as Portugal were beginning to show signs of frustration, Ronaldo produced a low shot which bobbled twice in front of Setkus in the 62nd minute.

Ronaldo's fourth was by far the most entertaining of the game.
