Watch Cristiano Ronaldo score a first-half HAT-TRICK for Al-Nassr as he enters Golden Boot race

THE SPECIAL RON CRISTIANO RONALDO hit a first-half hat-trick for Al-Nassr and charged into the race for the golden boot.

The 38-year-old needed a few games to adapt to Saudi Arabia but is now hitting goals with regularity.

Cristiano Ronaldo did not score in his first three Al-Nassr games but now cannot stop hitting the net

Saturday’s hat-trick means he has now netted eight times in his last four games.

All of Ronaldo’s goals came in the first-half as he made light work of opponents Damac.

His first came from the spot after 18 minutes when he converted a penalty.

The former Real Madrid forward would double his and Al-Nassr’s advantage by drilling in a left-footed effort from the edge of the box five minutes later.

He completed the hat-trick at the end of the first-half as Al-Nassr sprung on the counter attack.

Winger Abdulrahman Ghareeb got the move going as he raced into the opposition half with some impressive footwork.

He released Ayman Yahya, who in two touches slowed the ball down in the penalty area before putting it on a plate for Ronaldo.

From 12 yards out, the star dispatched the ball beyond the reach of the keeper.

Earlier this month Ronaldo hit four goals in a magnificent one-man performance at Al-Wehda.

His goal glut means he is now in joint-fourth in the Saudi Pro League scoring charts.

Anderson Talisca leads with 13 goals from 15 appearances, while Ronaldo already has eight in only five games.

Al-Nassr have a two-point lead over Al-Ittihad at the top of the table after 18 games.
