Cristiano Ronaldo took selfies with three pitch invaders after his 55th career Hat-trick in Portugal’s 6-0 win against Lithuania, MySportDab reports.
Ronaldo, whose hat-trick was the 55th of his career and ninth for Portugal, has 98 goals and could become only the second player to score a century for his country after Iran’s Ali Daei.
Pizzi, Goncalo Paciencia and Bernardo Silva shared the other goals in the one-sided Group B match.
The European champions, however, were left waiting to secure a place at the finals after Serbia beat Luxembourg 3-2.
There was more than one pitch invader who ran onto the turf to meet Ronaldo and he responded graciously, sharing a picture with one and lifting up a child.
Ronaldo showed no sign of the knee problem which led to him being substituted in his last two games for Juventus – prompting an angry reaction on the second occasion – and could easily have reached a century of goals on Thursday.
