It was just another day at the business for Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his 10th international hat trick against Luxembourg to lead the 2016 European Champions to a 5-0 victory in a World Cup qualifier that saw his United teammate, Bruno Fernandes also find the net.

CR7 can’t seem to quit scoring, with 115 goals in 182 outings. Last month, the former Real Madrid striker made history by breaking Ali Daei’s record for most international goals when he scored against Ireland.

With the most appearances in international football already under his belt, Portugal’s captain added another feather to his cap as he beat the record for most hattricks in internationals.

With the hattrick, Ronaldo has now 58 career-hattricks in the current generation, ahead of his contemporaries. 

Ronaldo now has 58 career hattricks, which puts him above his contemporaries in the current generation.

The former Juventus striker had a memorable year, winning the Serie A Golden Boot, the 2020 Euro Golden Boot, and all-time best scoring honours in European Championships and international football.

He’s currently tied with Lionel Messi, this year’s Ballon D’Or favourite, for the most goals (38) in 2021. This season, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has a total of ten goals in just nine matches for club and country.

The Portuguese international is currently just 6 goals away from breaking the record for most goals scored in a football career with 800.

Portugal is currently ranked second in the World Cup qualifiers, with 16 points from six matches, behind Group A leaders Serbia, although having played one fewer match.
