Second-half strikes from Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo earned Portugal a routine 2-0 win against the European minnows.


Roberto Martinez’s side have now won their last nine matches, with their most-recent competitive defeat coming against Morocco in the World Cup quarter-final almost one year ago.

Despite that, Ronaldo has urged his team-mates not to get carried away.


Ronaldo posted a series of photos from the match on Instagram with the caption: “Nine wins in a row! We stay focused!”

Last month Portugal secured qualification for the European Championship finals in Germany next summer.


Ronaldo and his team-mates have not downed tools though.

They have now won all nine of their qualifiers having scored 34 goals and conceded just two.

Manager Martinez, who replaced Fernando Santos in January, is yet to taste defeat in his new role.
