Cristiano Ronaldo responds to Lionel Messi scoring five goals with help from Diogo Jota

Cristiano Ronaldo responded to Lionel Messi's antics on Sunday night

in the only way he knows how - by scoring goals for fun.

Diogo Jota played a big part as well, setting up the Manchester United frontman

with the Liverpool star having a huge role in two of the goals.

Overall, it was a strong showing from Portugal in a competition they have grown to love.

It was the Selecao that won the inaugural Nations League in 2019

and they will be hopeful of repeating that feat after making a powerful start to this season's competition.

Much might rely on whether Ronaldo will be around for the final

though, but he has shown no signs of slowing down.

Ronaldo's brace takes his total tally for his country to an incredible 117 throughout his career

though Messi will be hoping to catch him soon.

And with the way he is scoring for Argentina at the moment, that might not be impossible.
