“When he gets going, he is unstoppable. You can never write him off” – Twitter reacts as Cristiano Ronaldo scored a first half brace against Luxembourg

Portugal dominated their European Championship qualification match against Luxembourg on Sunday, and Cristiano Ronaldo capped off the rout with a beautiful, composed goal.

After becoming the most-capped player in men’s football history in the Seleccao’s last match against Liechtenstein, the Portuguese legend finished off a feed from Bruno Fernandes to make it 4-0 to Roberto Martinez’s squad before halftime.

Ronaldo scored his second of the game shortly after the first goal, which came after a header by Nuno Mendes found Ronaldo unmarked in the six-yard box. In 199 games, the 38-year-old currently has 124 goals for Portugal.
