Ronaldo's Portugal is set to take on Spain at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation on Thursday.

The Real Madrid club-record goalscorer scored in Germany 2006 against Iran, in 2010 against North Korea and in 2014 against Ghana.

The hat trick was Ronaldo's 84th goal for Portugal, tying him with Ferenc Puskas for most global goals by an European player.

Ghana's Asamoah Gyan has hit back after it was wrongly reported Cristiano Ronaldo had become the first man to score at eight successive major tournaments.

For now the 33-year-old's focus is on his fourth and probably last chance to win a World Cup at the peak of his powers.

"We deserved more but football is like that, it can happen to you, only those of us who put on our gloves and go out in the field know how hard [it is]".

"We feel very proud of the players after the adversity of the match itself".




"The best player on the pitch was obviously Ronaldo, he allowed us to draw and he was very important during the game", one fan remarked.

"We are not the favourites, but yes, we are candidates".

But Spain regrouped at the interval and drew level 10 minutes into the second half with a textbook set-piece counter, Sergio Busquets heading a free-kick back across goal for Costa to turn it in.

But it did not appear to affect his performance as he scored all three goals including a late equaliser that meant the game ended 3-3. We have to give credit to what the team has done.

Not only was it was billed to be the tie of the day, it was also touted as the match-up of the group stages.

Facing his Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramos accepts the Spaniards have a tough task against European champions Portugal but he said he was delighted to be captain under such challenging circumstances.
