Cristiano Ronaldo is basking in glory after achieving yet another milestone in his illustrious career following Al-Nassr's resounding victory over Al Tai at the Al-Awwal Park on Saturday.

The Portuguese maestro showcased his scoring prowess by notching a sensational hat-trick in the second half, adding to the earlier strikes from his compatriot Otavio and Saudi Arabian international Abdulrahman Ghareeb as the Knights of Najd dominated proceedings against their lower-ranked opponents.

Despite a relatively frustrating first half, during which one of his attempts struck the post while he was offside, the 39-year-old superstar shifted into high gear after the halftime break.

Cristiano opened the floodgates with a clinical half-volley from a precise cross delivered by Sadio Mane in the 65th minute, per beIN Sports.

He swiftly doubled his tally just two minutes later, capitalising on a rebound to slot home his second goal of the night.

The veteran forward sealed his hat-trick in the dying moments of the game, nodding home from close range to seal a comprehensive victory and alleviate recent struggles experienced by his team in front of their home crowd.

Following his remarkable performance, the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus icon expressed his jubilation on social media, sharing his excitement with fans worldwide.

"This is how we do it. Amazing victory and another hat-trick!" he wrote on his X account (formerly called Twitter).

Ronaldo receives 'GOAT' praise

In an earlier publication, Sports Brief reported that Cristiano Ronaldo received widespread 'GOAT' praise for his outstanding display in Al-Nassr's dominant 5-1 win against Al Taee in the Saudi Pro League.

At 39, Ronaldo leads the league's scoring charts with 26 goals, holding a four-goal lead over his closest rival, Aleksandar Mitrovic of Al-Hilal.

Fans globally admired Ronaldo's remarkable consistency and ability to consistently score goals.
