Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice and missed a penalty as Portugal defeated Latvia in a World Cup Group B qualifier.

The 31-year-old opened the scoring from the spot but missed another penalty after the break when his effort came off both post and keeper Andris Vanins.

Arturs Zjuzins equalised with a low strike before William Carvalho headed the Portuguese back in front.

Ronaldo's volley made it 3-1 and Bruno Alves headed in a late fourth.

Portugal now have nine points but remain in second behind leaders Switzerland, who moved to 12 points with a 2-0 win over Faroe Islands.
