Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Portugal wrapped up its Euro 2016 preparations with a thumping 7-0 win over Estonia in their friendly clash at the Dr. Magalhaes Pessoa stadium.

The Real Madrid forward headed Portugal into a 36-minute lead before Ricardo Quaresma added second goal three minutes later with a stunning shot. Ronaldo then added his second goal just before half-time, the Guardian reported.

Although Ronaldo was substituted at half-time, Portugal kept on attacking their rivals as they added four more goals to their scoreline before the final whistle.

Goals from Danilo Pereira, Antonio Eder, Quaresma and Karol Mets’ own-goal helped Portugal get a major confidence boost ahead of the European Championship.

Portugal are placed in Group F and will face Iceland in their opening match.
