  • Cristiano Ronaldo produced a five-star performance for Al-Nassr
  • The veteran forward notched a hat-trick in the SPL against Al-Tai
  • He now has a staggering 64 trebles in his glistening football career

Cristiano Ronaldo earned widespread acclaim for his stellar performance in Al-Nassr's commanding 5-1 victory over Al-Tai in the Saudi Pro League.

Despite facing criticism for his recent outing with the Portugal national team, Ronaldo displayed his trademark resilience by delivering a remarkable second-half hat-trick.

His trio of goals, combined with earlier strikes from Otavio and Abdulrahman Ghareeb, not only secured a resounding win but also solidified Al-Nassr's position in second place.

Cristiano's hat-trick against Al Taee, a team fighting relegation, further cements his reputation as one of the most prolific scorers in football history, boasting an astonishing tally of 64 career hat-tricks, per Sportskeeda.

Remarkably, the Portuguese superstar scored 30 hat-tricks before the age of 30 and netted four times more than that figure since crossing the age 30-year milestone, highlighting his unparalleled scoring prowess.

With 26 goals in the Saudi top flight, the 39-year-old currently leads the league's scoring charts, holding a four-goal advantage over his nearest competitor, Aleksandar Mitrovic of Al-Hilal, as noted by Transfermarkt.

Ronaldo receives high praise after hat-trick

Football enthusiasts worldwide have showered praise on Ronaldo for his exceptional performance, marvelling at his enduring ability to find the back of the net with remarkable consistency.

@CFC_Majeed called Ronaldo the greatest footballer of all time after his hat-trick heroics:

"That's why he is the GOAT."

@Inspir3Football argued that no footballer in the history of the sport comes close to CR7:

"Nobody compares."

@Abdbas28 added:

"Preparing for the Euros, I know my goat."

Another user, @Post4Lamba, saluted Ronaldo's longevity:

"Age is just a number... Old is Gold."

@adanych151 also wrote:

"Cristiano Ronaldo goat, Yes."

Ronaldo jubilates after hat-trick milestone

Still on Cristiano Ronaldo, Sports Brief also reported that CR7 is on cloud nine after another goal-scoring milestone in his remarkable career.

Despite recently being told he's no longer Portugal's 'best player,' Ronaldo expressed his joy on social media, sharing his excitement with fans around the world.

He would hope to continue on a similar tangent when Al-Nassr play as guests at Pitso Mosimane's struggling Abha Club on Tuesday, April 2.
