Cristiano da Silva Scores Hat-Trick of Free-Kicks for Kashiwa Reysol in Cup Win

Tom Webb@@tomwebby92UK Staff WriterDecember 27, 2015

It would appear Cristiano Ronaldo isn't even the best Cristiano anymore when it comes to free-kicks, judging by this extraordinary hat-trick from Kashiwa Reysol's Cristiano da Silva.

The Brazilian midfielder struck three times from set-pieces as Kashiwa beat Vegalta Sendai on penalties after a 3-3 draw in Japan's Emperor's Cup on Saturday.

The goalkeeping might not have been great, but a hat-trick of free-kicks is some achievement nonetheless.
