Cristiano Ronaldo’s fantastic year

by Chris Wright, in Sport · 21-12-2016 14:52:00 · 2 Comments

Cristiano Ronaldo reached yet another landmark by scoring the 40th hat-trick of his illustrious Real Madrid career as the Spanish side claimed the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan on Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s fantastic year

Ronaldo, who picked up his fourth Ballon d’Or earlier this month, scored from the penalty spot and twice more in extra-time as La Liga’s leaders finally saw off the determined challenge of Japanese underdogs Kashima Antlers 4-2 in Yokohama.
Ronaldo has now scored 52 goals in 54 games in the calendar year including six hat-tricks.
CR7’s goal in the 2-0 semi-final win over Club América (Mexico) was the 500th of the Portuguese striker’s sensational career.
Lifting the Club World Cup for the second time in three years, added to Ronaldo’s list of honours as he had previously helped Real to another Champions League win and then led Portugal to glory in the European Championship.
The Madeira-born superstar has extended the size of his museum in Funchal as more honours roll his way.
Next year promises even more for Portugal’s favourite son with Real Madrid’s incredible unbeaten run now standing at thirty-seven matches in all competitions, leaving them four points clear at the top of the La Liga table.
