(Video) Cristiano Ronaldo completes hat-trick with incredible free-kick

Cristiano Ronaldo is having quite the afternoon for Manchester United this evening – the 37-year-old scored twice in the first half against Norwich and has now completed his hat-trick.

The superstar striker opened the scoring early in the game before doubling United’s lead but a fightback from struggling Norwich ensured a nervy end to the game.

Rangnick’s decision to not play with a ball-winning midfielder seemed to have backfired but Ronaldo stepped up, as he usually does, to emphatically restore United’s lead with roughly 15 minutes to go, as seen below.

The three-goal show was his third overall for United, his second this season and the 50th in his club career – quite the feat. United will hope that goal is enough to secure all three points, especially with Tottenham Hotspur losing earlier on Saturday.
