Portugal 3-0 Luxembourg: Cristiano Ronaldo moves one goal away from 700

Cristiano Ronaldo chips Anthony Moris
Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 94 goals for Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo moved one strike away from his 700th career goal as Portugal edged closer to Euro 2020 with a 3-0 win against Luxembourg.

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva opened the scoring before Ronaldo chipped over Anthony Moris.

Valencia's Goncalo Guedes completed the scoring just before full-time.

Portugal remain second in Group B, five points behind Ukraine, but four points clear of Serbia in third.

Ronaldo will have the chance to become just the sixth person to score 700 goals when Portugal travel to Ukraine on Monday.

Fernando Santos' side can qualify with a win in Kiev, if Serbia fail to win in Lithuania.
