Cristiano Ronaldo scores yet another sensational hat-trick for Portugal

Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is not interested in winding down his career just yet. After making a huge impact since his move back to Manchester United, he is now back to making waves with the Portugal national football team. He lit up the Estadio Algarve on Tuesday, as he scored a hat-trick in his team’s 5-0 victory in their FIFA World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.

Ronaldo hit the ground running with Portugal even after playing limited minutes with Manchester United on the club level. He gave Portugal the early lead after only eight minutes with a signature penalty kick. He managed to double that lead just after five minutes, giving Portugal the momentum early on.

By the 18th minute, Bruno Fernandes made his contribution to give Portugal a 3-0 lead going into the half-time break. Luxembourg did not find any answers and in the second half, and Joao Palhinha scored for Portugal again. Ronaldo then finished the match with a flourish by scoring another goal in the 87th minute to complete his hat-trick,
