This Ronaldo hat-trick for Real Madrid v Manchester United will make you stand up

In 2003 Real Madrid played Manchester United in the quarter finals of the Champions League. Real Madrid won the first leg 2-0 before an unbelievable second at Old Trafford.

Manchester United won 4-3 but couldn’t stop the phenom Ronaldo who scored a hat-trick for Real.

His first goal was a bullet finish on the angle into the bottom corner past Barthez.  The second, a tap in from a beautiful move with Zidane and Roberto Carlos.  The third was a immense.  Ronaldo got the ball about 30 yards out, Wes Brown stood off and the Brazilian striker curled it into the top corner.

He was then taken off to a standing ovation at Old Trafford.
