  • Cristiano Ronaldo stretches his muscles during a Portugal training session on Monday

A Selecao das Quinas beat Hungary 3-0 in Lisbon on Saturday night with Ronaldo scoring twice after an Andre Gomes opener, to take his goal tally to nine.

Ronaldo looks assured to catch up to Klose for the No. 2 spot on UEFA's all-time goal-scorer list as Portugal have a friendly vs. Sweden next week, plus a World Cup qualifier vs. Latvia in June. "What matters is that we won and we're in the fight to go to the World Cup".

With these two goals, Cristiano adds 70 goals in 136 games with Portugal's shirt and he becomes in the fourth European player to score more goal with a national team, after beating the Irish player Robbie Keane, on Saturday. Real Madrid's star achieved the record of being now the active player with more goals in a national team. Pepe also played the full 90 minutes in the full back.

"The team is good". "He's done very well since he started with the national team". "He's done a phenomenal job, not only with his goals".

"I think we were slow in our ball circulation during a period of the first half".

"After the first goal, the game was unlocked and we found our way through much better".

Indeed, since the beginning of 2016, the 32-year-old has been simply unstoppable in the worldwide arena.

Their chances of reaching Russian Federation 2018 now look to be slipping away, while Portugal can prepare for Tuesday's friendly with Sweden knowing that their own place in the finals is still firmly in their own hands.

Meanwhile, the Aeroporto Da Madeira in Portugal which is set to be renamed after Cristiano Ronaldo will be officially unveiled on March 29. "It will be good for the people of Madeira", the star concluded.
