Cristiano Ronaldo was again in a mesmerizing form on Saturday scoring a magnificent hat-trick as Manchester United edged Tottenham 3-2 at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo scored the three goals for United for a victory which keeps them afloat in the battle for a top four finish in the Premier League.
His first-half thunderbolt and close-range finish, either side of Harry Kane’s penalty, gave United the lead at the break. After Harry Maguire’s own goal saw Spurs equalise for the second time, Ronaldo ensured United had all three points as he completed a stunning hat-trick with a late towering header.
Ronaldo’s impressive treble saw him become the FIFA-recognised top goalscorer in football history as he took his career goals tally to a staggering 807 and counting.
This feat did not go unnoticed to football fans across the world as praises flew in for the Portuguese superstar from all angles.
