Manchester United and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has broken another international record after netting a hat-trick vs Luxembourg

Portugal hammer Luxembourg

Portugal would face off with Luxembourg in a World Cup qualifying match on Tuesday evening.

A Seleção headed into the game sat 2nd in their group behind Serbia. However, Serbia have played one more tie than Portugal, meaning that they can still top their group should they win their remaining qualifiers.

And Fernando Santo and co. took one more step towards achieving this on Tuesday with an absolute hammering of Luxembourg.

The game was over before it began as Cristiano Ronaldo netted a brace of penalties inside 13 minutes before CR7’s Manchester United teammate, Bruno Fernandes, made it 3-0 after just 17 minutes.

Joao Palhinha made it 4-0 after 69 minutes, with Ronaldo then adding Portugal’s 5th and his 3rd of the evening with three minutes of normal time remaining.

Now, vs Luxembourg, Ronaldo has broken yet another record, becoming the all-time leader in men’s international hat-tricks with a staggering 10 across his storied career:
