Phenomenal CR7 Sets Records Tumbling

The records just keep tumbling for Cristiano Ronaldo as he set a new international landmark just minutes into his World Cup campaign on Friday.

After just two minutes the forward won a penalty off club team-mate Nacho and made no mistake in executing the spot-kick himself, sending David de Gea the wrong way.

Ronaldo has now scored in eight consecutive major international tournaments – including World Cups, European Championships and Copas America – a feat no European or South American player has ever achieved before.

He also becomes the fourth man to score in four World Cup finals, having previously netted in 2006, 2010 and 2014.

Only Brazil’s Pele and Germany duo Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose can boast a comparable record on the world’s biggest football stage.

And for good measure, he recorded the 51st hat-trick of his career with two further goals, the latter a stunning free-kick – his first successful effort in 45 attempts in a major international tournament – that gave David de Gea no chance. He also became, at 33 years and 130 days old, the oldest player to hit a triple at the World Cup.
