๐Ÿ† Euro roundup: Ronaldo's 55th career hat-trick moves him to within two goals of a Portugal century

Last night's Euro 2020 qualifiers served up goals and drama galore with agony and ecstasy at both ends of the spectrum.

Here's our quick wrap of the standout performances and talking points.

🧔🏻 Giroud spares France blushes

It was a sluggish performance from the World Champions against Moldova, with the visitors to Stade De France working their socks off to deny Mbappé and company the space and time they needed. Sloppy defending from Barcelona man Clement Lenglet gifted Moldova the opportunity to take a shock lead, which they duly took, but his centre back partner Raphaël Varane levelled matters on 35 minutes.

Chelsea man Olivier Giroud struck the winner from the penalty spot with just over ten minutes to play, and Le Bleus is in the hat for Euro 2020.

🥾 Hat-trick of assists for Ben Chilwell

Leicester's left-back just keeps getting better. He starred for his club when they thumped Southampton 9-0 a couple of weeks ago, and he's extending that creative form to the international stage. Chilwell created England's first three goals in a 7-0 rout of Montenegro. 

Liverpool man Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain continued his fine comeback from injury with another goal, while there was a hat-trick for Spurs talisman Harry Kane. 

☄️ It's now 55 career hat-tricks for Cristiano

Speaking of routs, European Champions Portugal dispatched Lithuania 6-0 and it was their captain Cristiano Ronaldo who stole the show yet again. The Juventus man now has 98 goals for Portugal in 163 appearances, and last night's was his ninth hat-trick in national colours and the 55th of his glittering career.

😭 Czechs break Kosovan hearts 

Two goals inside ten minutes from the Czech Republic gave them a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Kosovo, a result that secured their passage to next year's showpiece. It's an encouraging sign for the Czechs, who beat England in early October.
