'Out of this world' - fans react as ex-Man United ace Cristiano Ronaldo scores four in one game

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 500th career league goal as part of a four-goal haul on Thursday evening as Al-Nassr cruised to a 4-0 win over Al-Wehda.

Ronaldo looks to have found his feet in Saudi Arabia, having scored a 93rd-minute equaliser from the penalty spot against Al Fateh last weekend. The 38-year-old carried his momentum into Thursday's trip to the King Abdul Aziz Stadium, slotting home two goals inside the opening 40 minutes.

The forward was played through on goal midway through the first half, arrowing a left-footed finish into the far corner before producing a similar strike with his right foot 20 minutes later. The opener was the former Manchester United man's 500th career league goal.

And just eight minutes after the break, Ronaldo stepped up to slot a penalty home with ease, securing a trademark hat-trick before a swift counter-attack saw him race through for goal number four.

After the milestone was reached and the hat-trick secured, fans took to Twitter to congratulate the forward.
