Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in Portugal’s 3-2 World Cup victory over Ghana on Thursday, November 24, making him the first male football player to score at five World Cups in a 20-year period.
The 37-year-old broke the previous mark when he converted a penalty in the 65th minute of Portugal’s Group H match against the Black Stars at the 974 Stadium in Doha.
When Mohammed Salisu challenged him, he was knocked to the ground and earned the penalty kick himself.
