It was a friendly in name only, as Portugal showed no mercy from the very start and scored just 8 minutes into the match, courtesy of Wolves Pedro Neto and Paulinho netting another before the break to make it 2-0 at halftime.
It was in the second half, however, when the floodgates really burst open. Renato Sanches netted before the hour mark and Paulinho added another minutes later.
Ronaldo was introduced at the break and looked intent on closing the gap between himself and Iranian legend Ali Daei in the race to become international football’s all time leading top scorer.
After Emili Garcia put the ball in his own net on 76 minutes, it was time for Ronaldo to join the party. The Juventus superstar got his name on the scoresheet five minutes from time to put himself within seven goals of the now retired Daei. Joao Felix notched in Portugal’s seventh of the night on 88 minutes to complete the rout.
