Twitter Erupts as Ronaldo Makes History, Becoming First to Score 10 International Hat-Tricks

Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is congratulated by Pele after being awarded the FIFA Ballon d’Or 2013 in Zurich January 13, 2014

Portuguese maestro Cristiano Ronaldo is known for breaking records for fun. He is not only the leading goal scorer in international football, but also holds the world record for most goals in the UEFA Champions League. On Tuesday, CR7 made history once again.

Cristiano Ronaldo sent ripples of ecstasy on social media as he became the first footballer ever to score 10 international hat-tricks during Portugal’s dominant 5-0 win over Luxembourg in their Group A World Cup qualifying clash at the Algarve Stadium.

While some called him the most "clutch athlete’’ in sports history, others declared his feat as “unreal” before calling him the “greatest of all time”.

Meanwhile, British broadcaster Piers Morgan dubbed his heroics against Luxembourg “insane”, while a few began to compare his display with those of his great rival Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo supporters also emphasised the fact that if the Argentina skipper had put up such a stunning show, he would have got more praise than the 36-year-old Manchester United ace.

Other admirers relied on statistics to prove that Ronaldo is better than Messi as he has more international goals than the PSG star and Diego Maradona combined.

Messi and Maradona’s goals add up to 114, while Ronaldo alone has 115 goals for his country.

It was Ronaldo’s 182nd appearance for Portugal and with their lopsided triumph over Luxembourg, they are now second in Group A with 16 points, just a point behind Serbia who have 17 points.


Oh forget Ronaldo…he should be grateful for those two penalties he got. Maybe the referee favoured Portugal or some sort. Oh! and they played against Luxembourg. I think we should be calling him “Penaldo”. If not penalties, then no show!

Buh penalties are also part of the Game ooh :grin:

He for comot 4 there. :joy: He should give us some real goal so we know he’s still the dangerous one.

Bro which one is your pain now. If Messi like his team should also cause penalty so that he score. Is penalty not part of the game? Or nothing happened then they gave him penalty. :smirk::smirk:
