Cristiano Ronaldo Does The Incredible Again

The world best footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo showed he's one of the greatest of all time as he started the 2018 World Cup tournament by breaking records.

The Portugal forward scored a brilliant hat-trick today in their opening game against Spain, which ended in a 3- 3 draw between the nations. The goals made him the first player ever to score in eight major international tournaments. 

Ronaldo has bagged at least one goal in every big event where he has featured, since after appearing for Portugal at a major tournament in Euro 2004.
WorldCup 2018: Cristiano Ronaldo scores brilliant hat-trick against Spain, becomes the first player to score at eight major international tournaments?
Ronaldo's goal was the fastest in a World Cup game since 1966, when Jose Augusto scored after 1:35 against Hungary and also sealed an incredible record of consistency over Ronaldo's career. 
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's the oldest hat-trick scorer in World Cup history, aged 33 years and 130 days – the previous oldest was Rob Rensenbrink in June 1978 for the Netherlands against Iran (30y 335d).

It's also on record that Ronaldo is the fourth player to score in four different World Cup tournaments - 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 - after PeleUwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose.
