Fifa 2018 : Cristiano Ronaldo slams hat trick goals against Spain
The first blockbuster encounter in the FIFA World Cup 2018 between Iberian cousins - Spain and Portugal - lived up to the billing as the two shared six goals between them to produce a classic group stage thriller in Sochi. However, a stunning free kick from Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo completed his 51st career hattrick. Spain continued their patient build-up play to try and find a way back into the contest but could not manage to find an inlet through the organised Portugal defense. Spain's equalizer came at the 24-minute mark, however, in a very un-Spanish way.
