There is no stopping Cristiano Ronaldo. The star man who led his national side to their first international trophy in 2016, may have just turned on the goalscoring switch again at 38 after a miserable first half of the season with his now-former club.
Cristiano Ronaldo become the first ever player to score in five consecutive World Cup campaign starting from 2006. The 38 years old gun is still blazing as he scores from a penalty in Portugal’s match against Ghana.
The striker, even though looked miles away from the form in which his fans and doubters are used to with seeing him in, but still managed to score for the national side in a high-scoring game against Ghana.
It was nil-nil up until the sixty-fifth minute of the match, and then Cristiano Ronaldo suddenly decided to bag yet another record from this World Cup too.
Cristiano Ronaldo Bags Another Record As Portugal Back On Winning Ways Against Ghana:
While his team was searching for a breakthrough, Cristiano used his body to get in front Salisu, the Ghanaian defender to get a foul inside the six-yard box. Since then his fans prepared to celebrate as anyone without a single shred of doubt could tell who will take the penalty for Portugal and if he will score or not.
However, despite a great performance from Ronaldo and co from up front and middle of the park, Portugal’s defense looked shaky as they conceded within minutes as Ghanaian captain Jordan Ayew equalized the match for themselves.
Thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ super vision and Joao Felix’s and Rafael Leao’s (subbed on) technique that Portugal bagged two more goals in the match which will help them to win the game even after another Ghanaian player take back another goal from Portugal in the dying minutes of the match.
