The Portuguese ace scored a hat trick for Portugal against Feroe Islands surpassing an international legend to reach the milestone

If he needed more goals to cement his legacy, Cristiano Ronaldo made sure his outing against Feroe Islands counted big time.

The Portuguese footballer scored his fifth hat-trick with A Seleccao Das Quinas today, and managed to set a solitary record in UEFA World Cup Qualifying matches. According to stats specialist Mister Chip, Real Madrid's ace has surpassed Andryi Shevchenko as the player with the most goals scored in this type of games, after breaking the tie between them at 26 goals.

"Well, it's now 28."
