Cristiano Ronaldo scored four goals for Portugal as they thrashed Andorra 6-0 in a 2018 World Cup qualifier, while Belgium and France also won.

Ronaldo scored twice – with a shot and header – in the opening four minutes to put the Euro 2016 champions in control.

Joao Cancelo added a third before Ronaldo completed the 42nd hat-trick of his career.

Ronaldo found the net again and Andre Silva also scored against an Andorran side that had two players sent off.

Portugal are now third in Group B having lost to leaders Switzerland, who beat Hungary 3-2 on Friday, in their opening game.

Ronaldo was injured in the final of Euro 2016 – and was playing his first international since that match, which Portugal won 1-0.

“We knew that the first goal would be really important against a team which puts 11 players behind the ball,” said Ronaldo.

“I know I am important, as are all the other players. I have always given everything for the national team, I feel useful and I’m happy to be back after that injury in the European championship. There are eight games to go and we want to win all eight to go to the World Cup.”
