Man on fire: CR7 grabs record 10th international hat-trick

Paris, October 13

Another hat-trick for Cristiano Ronaldo, another win — and qualification for the World Cup — for Denmark.

And yet more crowd trouble in a game between England and Hungary.

There was a sense of familiarity to the World Cup qualifiers in Europe on Tuesday, not least in Faro where Ronaldo extended his men’s record tally of international goals to 115 by scoring the 58th hat-trick of his career for club and country in Portugal’s 5-0 win over Luxembourg.

Denmark became the second European nation to qualify, after Germany on Monday, by securing an eighth straight win in group play by beating Austria 1-0.

Rage, racism and more

England were held to a 1-1 draw by Hungary at home.

Events on the field were overshadowed by clashes between police officers and Hungary supporters at the start of the match, sparked — according to police — by a visiting fan making “racially aggravated” comments toward a steward. In Tirana, the match between Albania and Poland was temporarily halted when Polish players walked off the field after Albanian fans threw water bottles at them. — AP
