Cristiano Ronaldo is supposed to be nursing an injury yet he still managed to score a hat-trick for Portugal in a 6-0 win over Lithuania.

According to Maurizio Sarri, Cristiano Ronaldo is injured.

Even in his injury strewn state, Ronaldo managed to bag a hat-trick for Portugal in their Euro 2020 Group B qualifier.

After a difficult couple of weeks in Turn for Ronaldo, he left his Juventus troubles behind and captained his native Portugal to victory.

He got his first with a seventh-minute penalty, his second 15 minutes later with a scorcher from outside the box.

Before he got his third  Fernandes, Paciencia and Bernardo Silva all got in the action.

Ronaldo then wrapped up the evening proceedings with his third and Portugals sixth.

His subsequent claim on the match ball was in the 65th minute.

The victory, however, does not guarantee Portugal’s qualification.

They must take care of Luxembourg on Sunday in order to be certain of defending their crown.

While it was another great spectacle of Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliance, it will leave Juventus and Sarri with some explaining to do.
