Man Utd star Ronaldo fires in hat-trick in Portugal win over Luxembourg

Cristiano Ronaldo was on fire as Portugal secured a thumping 5-0 win over Luxembourg on Tuesday.

The Manchester United forward opened the scoring from the penalty spot after eight minutes before scoring from the spot again five minutes later.

Fellow United star Bruno Fernandes made it 3-0 with a superb low shot.

Joao Palhinha got himself on the scoresheet, but it was Ronaldo who stole the headlines after he sealed his hat-trick with three minutes remaining.

The 36-year-old has extended his tally as the international goals record holder with 115.

Ronaldo surpassed Ali Daei's record of 109 goals last month.
