World Cup 2018, Spain vs Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo makes History in pulsating 3-3 Draw match against Spain

Cristiano Ronaldo took only four minutes to open the doorway to making history of the World Cup in a jaw-dropping classic match against Spain on Friday, as his penalty kick soared the ball right into the net – thanks to Nacho!

The face-off between Portugal and Spain was one of the most anticipated matches of the World Cup; because Ronaldo was there, because Isco was also there, because of encounter of key players of Real Madrid against each other and also because of the pre-World Cup turbulence in the management of Spanish team and not to forget the Spanish tax case verdict against Ronaldo which came few hours before the match. All these things were enough to raise the temperature of the stadium, and the match proved that it was undoubtedly one of the most sensational matches of the World Cup that gave World Cup the right set-off kick.

The match might have been drawn with 3-3 goals each, but Ronaldo single-handedly proved himself as the star of the match as he not only gave the boost to Portugal team in Group B but also carved his name at many places in the history of football.

His goal against Spain made him just the fourth man to score goals in four consecutive World Cups – following Pele, Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose.

And the history didn’t end there; his spot-kick also made him the first man in history to score goals in eight consecutive major tournaments.

The match also saw some weird records to pile up as Ronaldo scored his 51st hat-trick, which was also strangely 51st hat-trick of the World Cup. This hat-trick also made him the player with the most hat-tricks among the active players.

At the age of 33, Ronaldo has displayed the zeal and swiftness of his early days and has proved that he still has all – all to keep on reviving the history of football.
