Even if UEFA finally decides not to give Portugal the second goal considering that their shot was out of goal and that Ernestas Setkus, the Lithuanian goalkeeper, diverted the ball into his own goal, Cristiano Ronaldo again delivered a outstanding performance this Tuesday night for the fourth match of the Seleçao in qualifying for Euro 2020. His team won (5-1) in Lithuania, three days after winning in Serbia (4-2 ).

After opening the scoring penalty early in the game (7th), the Portuguese captain tried a lot in the first period without much success. In the second half, his daring was rewarded with, therefore, this mistake of hands of the Lithuanian goalkeeper (62nd), then two other achievements (65th, 76th) each time on services of Bernardo Silva.
