Robbie Kean hung his boots from an international race with 68 goals for his national team. He had the record of the most qualifying goals for the European championship with 23 goals. Keane joked about his record through his social media accounts before Portugal's game against Lithuania. He joked with Ronaldo not to break his record in the Euro qualifiers. He wrote, "Leave this one. I think you have enough records, Cristiano!"
Before Portugal's game against Lithuania, Ronaldo had two short goals to tie with Keane's record. And then the Ronaldo happened.
Ronaldo answered Keane's joke with a poker. Ronaldo shined for Portugal when he scored four goals in a 5-1 victory against Lithuania.
