Cristiano Ronaldo looks unstoppable in the beginning of the season. Despite starting training later than his colleagues because of the Confederations Cup, the Portuguese striker is shining every time he has the chance. On Thursday he played with his national team and scored a hat-trick against Faroe Islands.
It wasn’t only a hat-trick against a weak team, but the Real Madrid striker lead again his national team. Besides, he scored one of the best goals in his career in the 3rd minute, with a great volley without looking the goal.
“I was looking for this kind of goal long time ago. I haven’t had the chance to watch it yet and I hope to enjoy it. Now we have to go to Hungary and win there. I have still two games ban with Real Madrid, but I only have to think about Portugal now”, Cristiano Ronaldo said after the game.
With these three goals, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 14 in the World Cup qualifying, beating the record in the European qualifications. He can now beat Honduras striker Pavón, who scored 15 in 2002, or the Australian player Thompson, with 16 goals. Besides, Cristiano Ronaldo has found the net 78 times with Portugal, overcoming Pelé, who scored 77 with Brazil.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now to travel to Budapest to face Hungary in a key game in their way to the World Cup. Portugal have three points less than Switzerland, the top of the group.
The Real Madrid striker looks very fit in this start of the season. In his only official appearance with Los Blancos, he scored a great goal against FC Barcelona in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup. Then, he was sent off for diving and he pushed the referee, getting a five-game ban. In the Santiago Bernabéu Trophy against Fiorentina, he also found the net with a superb goal.
