CONGRATULATIONS to Cristiano Ronaldo, recipient of The BrandLaureate Legendary Award October 2016, for becoming the first player in men’s international football to score 10 hat-tricks for his country.

Creating history with every kick, the Manchester United and Portugal legend scored his 113th, 114th, and 115th international goals during a 5-0 rout of Luxembourg.

Regarded by fans as the best football player in the world, and one of the most gifted footballers of all time, the 36-year-old opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the eighth minute and then converted another spot-kick just five minutes later to double Portugal’s lead.

Bruno Fernandes and Joao Palhinha added further strikes, before Ronaldo headed home a Ruben Neves cross in the final few minutes of normal time, to complete his 58th career hat-trick.

Bruno also found the net during Portugal’s 5-0 romp.

Ronaldo fired his ninth international hat-trick back in 2019, against Lithuania, which took him to level with Sweden’s Sven Rydell (1923-1932) for most hat-tricks in international football.

Against Luxembourg he edged beyond Rydell and became the first player to reach double figures.

In September, Cristiano became the overall leading scorer in men’s international football, by netting his 110th and 111th strikes, during a dramatic 2-1 victory over the Republic of Ireland.

In August 2021, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner returned to Manchester United Football Club, 12 years after departing for Real Madrid.

For his football prowess, Ronaldo was honored with The BrandLaureate Legendary Award in 2016.

So far, he has won over 30 major trophies during his career, including five UEFA Champions League titles, four FIFA Club World Cups, seven league titles in England, Spain and Italy, and the European Championship for his native Portugal.

Congratulations on your success!
