Nine years at Real Madrid: 9 most iconic CR7 moments
#8. Trio of Club World Cups
With Ronaldo leading from the front, Real Madrid didn't just conquer Spain or Europe. They extended their domestic and European domination to the whole world by winning the premier international worldwide club event organised by FIFA. The Club World Cup pits the winners of the continental championships from different continents (Madrid from Europe as UEFA Champions League winners) against each other.
Madrid won the European conquest four times with Ronaldo. They got an opportunity to prove themselves to the world on three occasions (fourth in 2018-19) and they proved triumphant all three times. By winning in the 2014, 2016 and 2017 editions, Real Madrid equalled the record for most wins in the history of the competition with FC Barcelona. CR7 holds the record here for scoring the most at the event - 7 goals. In 2016, he even scored a hat-trick in the final to win the tournament for Madrid.
