After scoring the opening goal in Portugal’s World Cup matchup with Ghana, Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score at five World Cups on Thursday.
The 37-year-old set the record when he converted a penalty kick in the 65th minute at Doha’s 974 Stadium to give Portugal the lead over the Black Stars in their Group H matchup.
He surpasses Pele and the Germans Miroslav Klose and Uwe Seeler, who have all scored at four World Cups.
Additionally, Ronaldo increased his own international goal record to 118.
When he was knocked down by a clumsy challenge from Mohammed Salisu, he won the spot kick himself.
Manchester Joined declared for the current week that Ronaldo will leave with quick impact after he condemned the club and chief Erik ten Witch in a television interview, however he has gave no indications of strain from the dramatic finish to his time at Old Trafford.
