It was already an eventful World Cup for Cristiano Ronaldo before the Portugal star even set foot on the field, but now it’s a historic one when Portugal beats Ghana 3-2. Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo becomes first male player to score in 5 World Cups. The Associated Press has story:
Ronaldo’s Portugal beats Ghana 3-2 in historic game
The Portugal captain scored in the 65th minute from the penalty spot — the 118th goal for his country — at Doha’s Stadium 974. Ronaldo, 37, is the most prolific goalscorer in men’s international football and has made a record 18 appearances for Portugal at a World Cup.
It comes after Ronaldo left Manchester United by “mutual agreement” earlier this week following an explosive TV interview in which he criticised the club and coach Erik ten Hag.
He has now scored in every World Cup since his first in 2006 and has a record 118 international goals.
