Ronaldo Nets Hat Trick As Portugal And Spain Share Spoils In Six-Goal Thriller
Hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational free-kick two minutes from time earned Portugal a 3-3 draw with Spain in a pulsating World Cup Group B encounter on Friday.
Ronaldo had given Portugal a dream start winning and scoring a fourth-minute penalty. Diego Costa levelled only for Ronaldo to put the 2016 European champions back in front just before half-time.
Costa once again got Spain back level with Nacho scoring his first ever goal giving Spain the lead, only for Ronaldo’s magical 88th-minute set piece to earn Portugal a share of the spoils in Sochi.
“When you play against a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, that kind of thing can happen. Our team kept the ball well, but with Cristiano, one moment of inspiration can be enough.” – Fernando Hierro, Spain coach
