- De Bruyne.'Hat-trick 'of assists and great goal for an intractable Belgium
The top scorer in the history of the Portuguese national team, Cristiano Ronaldo , already doubles the second, Pauleta , in this particular classification. After his poker against Lithuania, the striker reaches 93 points in 160 games . And it is not his only record.
Cristiano is not only the top Portuguese scorer, but he is the top European scorer at the level of national teams in history. But there is more. Cristiano is also the top active gunner in national football. And here the thing does not end. With the game on Tuesday, the former Real Madrid already has ten games in which he has scored four or more goals (eight with Madrid and two with Portugal). Some data that show, without any doubt, that we are facing the most decisive auctioneer of recent times. Likewise, his inexhaustible ambition is combined with the sweet moment of the Iberian team, champion of the European Championship and the League of Nations.
If Portugal qualifies for the European Championship next summer - a fact that is yet to be seen - it will be due almost to its star. Because this Tuesday, when Lithuania matched the score and sent the Portuguese team to third place in Group B, he reappeared. The usual. First penalty, then with a distant shot that the goalkeeper failed to block, later with a shot at goal and, finally, with another touch crossed in the area. The infinite repertoire of a legendary player.
Kosovo's first defeat in two years
In the rest of the day, Kosovo was defeated almost two years later. Undefeated since October 9, 2017 (15 consecutive games), Bernard Challandes combined fell thrashed (5-3) against England , despite his fierce reaction in the second half. Sterling, Kane, Vojvoda in own door and a double of Jadon Sancho certified the victory. The British count all their matches for victories in the qualifying phase, leaders of Group A. Third, at a point in the Czech Republic, is the amazing Balkan team. His journey since FIFA allowed him to play official matches only three years ago impresses: four wins and two draws in the League of Nations; two wins, two draws and one defeat in the Eurocopa access phase.
Despite the setback, their options to go to the Euro remain realistic. With three duels still to be played, he has eight points, one less than the Czech Republic - which he will face on November 14 - and six more than Montenegro - his rival a month earlier, on October 14. Therefore, the Challandes team, expelled for his extravagant protests to the fourth referee, remains immersed in the fight for qualifying for the first time in his short history for an international tournament.
