The Real Madrid ace put on an impressive display as he scored two of Portugal's six goals to help the Seleccao pick up a comfortable result.

The victory sees Portugal book a place in the Euro 2012 finals after the first-leg ended in a goalless draw, and Ronaldo believes that his side were always superior to their opponents.

"I had a good match, in which I scored goals, the team also played well, we are very happy and thank God we are at Euro 2012," he told Goal.com after the game.

"All considered, Portugal are fair winners, we are better than them, we showed it today, just like we had shown it in the first-leg. "I think the result was fair, we played better and we are a better team."
