Here's what you missed at the World Cup: Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick magic

Daily Hive Staff Jun 15, 2018 3:20 pm 2,027

Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is 4-for-4, with another 3, so to speak, after his team’s game against Spain at this year’s World Cup.

Ronaldo is now just the fourth player to score in four different World Cups, after putting one in the net on a penalty kick in the 88th minute of the match.

But there was an even sweeter side to this particular occasion, as it was Ronaldo’ sixth international hat-trick (the 51st of his career in total).

Did we mention that at 33-year-old, he’s also the oldest player to ever score a hat-trick at the international tournament?

Needless to say, he was thrilled with his accomplishment – and so were soccer fans.

To the surprise of no one, Ronaldo was also named the player of the game, which ended in a 3-3 tie.

Other results from the day:

  • Uruguay defeats Egypt 1-0
  • Iran defeats Morocco 1-0
