Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as Portugal recorded an emphatic World Cup qualifying win over Luxembourg on the Estadio Algarve.
The victory leaves Portugal second in Group A, some extent behind Serbia who they host of their closing sport.
Ronaldo knocked in two penalties and rounded off the scoring with a header as he recorded his 58th hat-trick for membership and nation.
Bruno Fernandes and Joao Palhinha added the opposite targets.
Fernandes beautifully drove a low shot into the bottom-right nook because the hosts went 3-0 up inside 18 minutes.
Nevertheless, all of the headlines will rightly belong together with his Manchester United team-mate who now has 115 worldwide targets.
The 36-year-old broke Iran striker Ali Daei’s file of 109 targets final month.
Portugal journey to the Republic of Eire of their penultimate Group A match earlier than going through Serbia.
