8 Records Cristiano Ronaldo Has Already Equalled/Broken At The 2018 FIFA World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo has been in blistering form at the 2018 FIFA World Cup so far. In fact, the Real Madrid superstar has already equalled or broken these eight impressive records.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see eight records Ronaldo has equalled or broken at Russia 2018.

The Portugal captain scored a hat-trick in his side's 3-3 draw with Spain in the first game round, and also found the back of the net in A Selecao's 1-0 win over Morocco in their second fixture.

In so doing, he has matched a new set of records, as Squawka pointed out.

With his first goal against Spain, Ronaldo became only the fourth player in World Cup history to score in four different editions of the tournament, joining Germany legends Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose, as well as Brazil's Pele.

In addition, he also equalled Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan's record of scoring in nine successive major international tournaments. With his second strike against La Furia Roja, the 33-year-old became only the second Portuguese to score a World Cup goal from outside the box, joining Deco, who managed to do so against Iran in 2006.

His third strike against Spain saw him set up multiple records, as he became the oldest player to score a hat-trick at the World Cup and the first to score a triple against the 2010 winners.

Overall, he also became the third Portugal player to score a hat-trick at a World Cup, joining the legendary Eusebio, who did so in 1966, and Pauleta, who netted a hat-trick in the 2002 tournament.

Finally, with his goal against Morocco, he broke Ferenc Puskas' record as the all-time European record scorer, and became only the second Portuguese player to score World Cup goals with his right and left foot as well as his head, matching the record held by Jose Torres, who did so in 1966.

@Voltaire & Mentashe : I agree with you guys...scoring with left foot and right foot can't be a record,let alone scoring outside the box.Next thing they'll say he is the first Portuguese player to wear the no 7 jersey for his country and at club level.
