Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record in his game for Portugal against Luxembourg. He scored a hat-trick in a game against the opposition in the FIFA World Cup qualifying game on Tuesday.
He has also scored 8 goals against Luxembourg, which is the highest number of goals he has scored against any country.
The Manchester United forward man was on nine hat-tricks going into the game, which were against Northern Ireland, followed by Sweden, Armenia, Andorra, Faroe Islands, Spain, Switzerland, Lithuania.
But the man who broke Iranian Ali’s Daei’s in men’s international football last month pulled further away when he completed his hat trick three minutes from time.
