So the stats simply prove that all top scorers score against weaker teams? How does this prove that he wouldn’t continue to score lots of goals when he still scores more than his peers even when playing for Portugal?That's not how it works and you already know it, only Switzerland and Hungary played against "those same nations" in the WC qualifiers, it strikes you as weird that Seferovic or Szalai can't outscore Ronaldo?.
Why did Lewandowski beat Ronaldo? Well he put 9 on Romania and Armenia in 3 games for example. In the 14' QF Bosnia got Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia and Liechtenstein and surprisingly Dzeko and Ibisevic combined for 18 goals, 10 more than Ronaldo in that qualifier... are you shocked by that fact?.
Oh, Lukaku scored 8 of his 11 QF goals against Cyprus, Estonia and Gibraltar, and just 3 against Bosnia and Greece... who would've thought that!.
10 teams account for 40% of his international goals, those teams are Armenia, Latvia, Andorra, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Luxembourg, N Ireland, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Cyprus.
And that's okay, and it's only logical when you haven't played for Brazil, Spain, Germany, France or Italy in the last 15 years.
