Cristiano Ronaldo crosses Josef Bican to become FIFA’s all-time best goal scorer with a spectacular hat-trick in Manchester United’s vital match against Tottenham bringing his total to a record 807 goals.
The striker, who was spared for the derby loss to Manchester City last week, was at his best to secure United a very much three points.

It was only his second hat-trick for the Red Devils and his first since a hat-trick against Newcastle United during January 2008. Ronaldo, who had only produced once in his previous ten games, scored after just 12 minutes with a spectacular missile into the top corner, the ball flying past a bewildered Hugo Lloris. Fred made the goal possible by fooling Rodrigo Bentancur and finding Ronaldo in lots of space.

Spurs evened up through a penalty from Harry Kane, but Ronaldo equalized just three minutes later, grabbing onto a Jadon Sancho pass and slotting home from close range. United appeared to be in control, but Harry Maguire put the goal into his net, drawing Spurs back into the game. But, with only ten minutes left, Ronaldo showcased why he is acknowledged as one of the best players of all time.

The 37-year-old legend climbed higher than everyone else of a United corner to smash in a superb header and secure United the three points. Again for the sixth time this season, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the game-winning goal for Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson would be happy with the genius he groomed as he watches from the stands.
