It was the Portugal captain’s fourth hat-trick or his country and the first time he has scored four in an international, taking his tally to 65 goals in 134 appearances.
The win got Portugal off the mark in Group B after a shock 2-0 defeat away to Switzerland in their opening game last month when Ronaldo was missing through injury. However, they are still three points behind Switzerland, who won 3-2 in Hungary, and also trail the Faroe Islands, who have four points after winning 2-0 in Latvia.
