Ronaldo scores 699th career goal as Portugal beat Luxembourg (3-0)

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 699th career goal as Portugal eased to a 3-0 victory over Luxembourg in their Euro 2020 qualifier.

Cristiano Ronaldo evolved from CR7 into CR700 on Friday night, bagging his country's second goal in their comfortable win, appropriate doing it in his former home, at Sporting's Estadio Jose Alvalade.

The goal also meant that the Juventus forward is now on 94 worldwide goals and would become only the second player in history to reach 100 goals for his country, if he was to make a century for Portugal.

Cristiano came on for the second half though, and his arrival changed things.

With the three points firmly in the bag, Goncalo Guedes added gloss to the scoreline with a third goal in injury-time, according to MailOnline report.

Robert Forster Dead at 78
Forster completed three additional projects in 2019: El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories and Werewolf .

Les Bleus remain second, level on 18 points with Turkey, after Everton's Cenk Tosun scored the only goal of a feisty encounter with Albania in the 90th minute.

The defence was sleeping, Ronaldo stole the ball and chipped the keeper.

Elsewhere in Group B, Ukraine continued their fine start to qualification with a 2-0 win over Lithuania to maintain their five-point lead over Portugal. Retired striker Pauleta is second on the list, scoring 47 goals for Portugal.

Ronaldo will have the chance to become just the sixth person to score 700 goals when Portugal travel to Ukraine on Monday.

Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are regarded as the best footballers in the past ten years and the Portuguese will want to get 700 career goals before his greatest rival.
