Cristiano Ronaldo seems determined to leave his mark in this 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Portuguese star saved his team from defeat by scoring a brilliant free-kick goal late in regulation, securing a point for a Portugal team which relied to much on the attacker.
Here are the best reactions, memes and commentary about Ronaldo’s great hat-trick.

Ronaldo clearly knows what he’s doing. If he manages to complete a good World Cup tournament there’s no way he doesn’t win another Ballon D’Or come January time. Furthermore, it would put some pressure on Real Madrid’s side because the club would be forced to give him the salary he wants.
¡Un récord más para @Cristiano! Quién igualó a @Pele y a los alemanes Uwe Seeler y Miroslav Klose como 4⃣ jugador que anota en cuatro ediciones del #MundialTelemundo. ¿Llegará a una quinta Copa en Qatar 2022? pic.twitter.com/AgTUaO3acH— Telemundo Deportes (@TelemundoSports) June 15, 2018
If Ronaldo somehow manages to score in the 2022 Qatar World Cup he would be the only player to score in 5 editions of the tournament.
The guys at Telemundo Deportes know how to do this.
