Ronaldo's hat trick for Portugal against Spain has Twitter in awe

National team ties Spain 3-3 in spectacular first World Cup match

It could also be a last World Cup for five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo as he looks to finally make his mark on football's greatest stage.

Ronaldo quickly got to his feet and made his way over to the spot with the ball in his hands before setting it down and preparing to find the back of the net.

Ronaldo stepped up and confidently stroked the ball into the bottom right corner of the net, completely fooling goalkeeper David De Gea.

While Spain bossed possession, Portugal always looked a threat on the break, although young PSG attacker Gonçalo Guedes failed to make the most of a couple of promising attacks.

Football fans were treated to one of the best World Cup games in recent memory as Spain and Portugal contested a 3-3 draw in their opening Group B game in Russian Federation.

Trump and Angela Merkel’s Stare-Down
Russian Federation was kicked out in 2014 because of its occupation of Crimea . "Canada does have a very big advantage over us". Trump also incorrectly claimed that the photo "was put out by my people", as it was released by Merkel's office.

"We saw two teams that were very good in all faculties, the defence, midfield and attack", he said.

"When you play against a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, that kind of thing can happen", Spain coach Fernando Hierro said.

After only three goals in total at the last three World Cups, he doubled his tournament tally in one night here, and has now scored at eight consecutive major tournaments going back to Euro 2004, when he was still a teenager.

De Gea's mistake would prove costly as Spain and Portugal ended up sharing the spoils in a 3-3 draw, and while the 27-year-old was happy with the support within the Roja camp, he was critical of the situation outside it. We never turned away from the fight, " said Ronaldo.

Costa equalised in the 24th as he latched onto a long ball forward by Sergio Busquets, bundled off a challenge from Pepe, slipped through two defenders and slotted his shot past keeper Rui Patricio.

Italy prepares Spanish migrant convoy, faces French criticism
But the political mood in Italy has changed, with resentment growing among voters toward both migrants and the European Union . The IMRCC coordinated all these actions from the start and took responsibility for the rescue of all these people.

Goal-line technology came into play a few moments later when a Francisco "Isco" Alarcon's shot struck the crossbar and dropped straight down on top of the goal line.

The Argentina star had posed with a goat before the tournament, and Ronaldo's actions have been interpreted as a dig.

Securing a point against the 2010 champions is a positive first step for Portugal, who face Morocco before wrapping up their Group B campaign against early leaders Iran.

After Diego Costa tied the match at 1-1, Ronaldo would once again give Portugal the advantage just before halftime, striking a shot from just outside the box.

The only Madrid player to start for Portugal was, of course, the captain, Cristiano Ronaldo.
