Cristiano Ronaldo delighted with hat-trick, says draw a fair result

GETTYCristiano Ronaldo could be on the move with a move away from Real Madrid mooted

Ronaldo earned Portugal a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain in the two teams' 2018 World Cup opener by sending that free kick over the Spanish wall and into the top corner. Each player has won the Fifa Player of the Year Award five times.

Barcelona great Andres Iniesta, who scored the victor in the 2010 World Cup final, is likely to be playing in his final global tournament after leaving the Camp Nou for Japanese side Vissel Kobe.

Ronaldo had twice put Portugal in front, and yet he was required to score a superb 88th-minute free-kick to grab a point after Spain had fought back brilliantly.

Is Cristiano Ronaldo the best in the world?

Ronaldo is due to play for Portugal later in the day (2am on Saturday, Singapore time) in a World Cup match against Spain.

"The mister [interim coach Fernando Hierro] is with me and the whole team, so I am calm", he said. However, Ronaldo said he thought the draw was a "fair result". "We can go through this group phase, we know it is going to be tough, hard but we have to focus on each match, and go match by match", he added.

"We respect the European champions [Portugal], we know that they have one of the best players in Ronaldo and a coach with experience, but we trust fully in our lads". "These last two weeks have been quite intense, but we have a clear idea of what we want to achieve tomorrow", he explained.

Ronaldo had previously denied the charges through his agents. Lopetegui was to take over at the Bernabeu after the World Cup, only to get sent home before the tournament even started.

In one night the Real Madrid superstar doubled his World Cup finals goal tally, and made history by scoring at an eighth consecutive major tournament going back to Euro 2004, when he was still a teenager.
