Portugal 4-0 Belgium: Ronaldo on target

LISBON, March 24 (Reuters) - Winger Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Portugal crushed Belgium 4-0 in their Euro 2008 qualifier in Group A on Saturday.

Two goals in the space of two minutes paved the way for

Portugal's victory, with Nuno Gomes breaking the deadlock in the

52nd minute and Ronaldo getting his first of the night almost

immediately afterwards.

Ricardo Quaresma added the third in the 68th minute before

Ronaldo completed a rout which kept the Euro 2004 hosts in a

promising position in their group.

Poland are top on 13 points, having played a game more,

after trouncing Azerbaijan 5-0. Finland are second on 11 points,

with Portugal third on 10 and goal difference ahead of Serbia,

who lost 2-1 to Kazakhstan on Saturday.
