Cristiano Ronaldo Scored His sixth hat-trick For Team
FIFA WorldCup 2018 Portuguese man Cristiano Ronaldo scored his sixth hat-trick for his team and 51st career treble as Portugal held an all-out attacking Spain 3-3 in the Group B clash at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi Russia on Saturday.
Match result of PortugalVsSpain is withdraw with 3-3 score. With 84 goals, Ronaldo equalled Puskas in the all-time goal-scorers list.
Five minutes to the regulation time and Spain are very much in control with most of the proceedings happening in Portugal half.
It is a stretch to make Portugal one of the favourites to win the trophy, even with Ronaldo, but they are nevertheless in Russia as the reigning European champions after surprising France on home soil two years ago.
Ronaldo is 33 now, still in fantastic physical condition and the reigning Ballon d'Or winner. He can probably play on for as long as he wants, but it is hard to imagine him returning for a fifth World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
If he is to cap his career with a World Cup winner's medal, then now is his time, and what better way to start than by inspiring Portugal to victory over their neighbours and put themselves in pole position in Group B.
"Of course Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world at the moment and he will be the top player at this World Cup. There are no words to describe him," said admiring team-mate Joao Mario at Portugal's base near Moscow this week.
