Portugal player ratings vs Bosnia and Herzegovina: Cristiano Ronaldo can't stop scoring! Captain bags a brace in dominant win to stay perfect in Euro 2024 qualifying

Cristiano Ronaldo was among the goals once more, while the group around him also chipped in, as Portugal thrashed Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Selecao led 4-0 after half an hour, and scored five by half time, running away 5-0 winners, and maintaining a perfect record in Euro 2024 qualifying.

Manager Roberto Martinez deployed a full strength lineup despite already sealing qualification to next year's tournament.

And his side wasted no time putting Bosnia and Herzegovina to the sword. Ronaldo opened the scoring inside 10 minutes, converting from the penalty spot after a handball in the Bosnia and Herzegovina box. The forward added a second 15 minutes later, latching onto Joao Felix's threaded pass and lifting the ball over the keeper.

Bruno Fernandes put the game beyond doubt soon after, ghosting beyond the Bosnia backline and lashing an effort into the roof of the net. And the floodgates soon opened for the Selecao. Joao Cancelo scored the fourth after 32 minutes, curling one into the top corner from the edge of the box. And Felix got a deserved one of his own, taking advantage of a defensive collapse to poke home the fifth.

Martinez rotated in the second half, and a much-changed side created admittedly little. But by that time, the damage was done.
