Baku. 8 October. REPORT.AZ/ Cristiano Ronaldo said he was "happy to be back" producing for Portugal after firing in four goals in a 6-0 win against Andorra on Friday.
Report informs, 31-year-old captain scored this result in a match of the qualifying round of World Cup 2018.
"We knew that the first goal would be really important against a team which puts 11 players behind the ball," Ronaldo said.
"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."
The game marked the first time Ronaldo had ever scored four times in a game with Portugal, though he has accomplished that feat seven times before with his clubs.
The four goals also brought Ronaldo's international tally to 65, and he will look for more on Monday at the Faroe Islands -- the surprise of Group B so far with four points.
"Now we have to think about the Faroe Islands," Portugal coach Fernando Santos said. "We need to win it."
