The referee ordered Ronaldo to regain his second successful penalty kick due to the invasion, but he easily extended Portugal’s lead to two points in the second attempt.
Manchester United teammate Bruno Fernandez scored a third goal before the 18th minute, as Portugal threatened to improve cricket scoring, but Luxembourg insisted on keeping the score at three points until Joo Parcinha in the second half Headed from a corner kick midway through.
With 4 minutes left in the game, the original creator retracted this move for himself-celebrating in his usual style after completing a hat trick with a close header.
This victory put Portugal behind Serbia, the leader of Group A, in a game. The two sides took the lead among the other teams in the group and faced each other in the final qualifying match.
