Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo has promised to “always be looking for more and more and more” after scoring a hat-trick in Portugal’s World Cup qualifier 5-0 win over Luxembourg on Tuesday.
Ronaldo scored his 58th career hat-trick, his 10th for Portugal as Fernando Santos’s men thrashed Luxembourg at Estádio Algarve.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored two penalties within five minutes in the first half before completing the treble in the second half after Bruno Fernandes and Joao Palhinha had also scored for Portugal.
The victory means Portugal are now one point behind Group A leaders Serbia, though they have a game in hand.
Another victory, another step towards our goal, another historic night in defence of our colours!
“Everything becomes easier when we play at home and in front of an audience that cares for us from the first to the last minute…
“I had promised that I would always be looking for more and more and more!
“It’s in my DNA and in our DNA, we’re never content, we never lower our arms and we always go,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram after the game.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo now has 115 international goals for Portugal.
