Cristiano Ronaldo makes his first hattrick for Portugal in the span of 15 minutes, despite not being in the best form and the constant “Messi! Messi! Messi!” chants of the N. Ireland supporters. He has now scored 43 goals for Portugal and is only 4 goals away of Pauleta’s top scoring record. He dedicated his goals (and Portugal’s win) to his late father.
