Cristiano Ronaldo's Hat-Trick Sends Portugal Into The Nations League Final

Cristiano Ronaldo's Hat-Trick Sends Portugal Into The Nations League Final

Cristiano Ronaldo put on a superb captain's performance after firing Portugal into the Nations League final with a hat-trick against Switzerland.

The 34-year-old Portugal captain handed his side the advantage in the first half when he scored the opener from a fantastic free-kick.

Ricardo Rodríguez struck back in the second half for Switzerland after VAR was called into action and awarded a penalty to Vladimir Petković's side.

However, the Juventus ace was not going to allow the 2016 Euro champions to be knocked out in the semi-finals of the inaugural Nations League competition.

Ronaldo stepped up again late into the second half and bagged his brace with a tidy finish past Yann Sommer.

But hey, he wasn't done there.
