Real Madrid suffered an almighty fright before a Cristiano Ronaldo Hat-Trick hauled them back from 2-1 down and gave them a 4-2 win over rank outsiders Kashima Antlers in the FIFA Club World Cup Final.

Two goals from Gaku Shibasaki stunned the European Champions as the Japanese hosts took a 2-1 lead early in the second half at Yokohama, before a Ronaldo penalty brought real level on the hour.

Ronaldo scored twice more in the first period of extra-time.

Eleven-times Champions Real, who won the tournament for the second time in three years, appeared set for an easy victory when Karim Benzema gave them a ninth-minute lead, but Shibasaki changed the story by levelling one minute before halftime.

Real beat Mexico’s Club America in the Semi-Finals and Kashima defeated Colombia’s Atletico Nacional.
