Cristiano Ronaldo became the first male football player to score at five World Cups in a span of 20 years, after opening the score sheet in Portugal’s 3-2 World Cup win against Ghana on Thursday evening, November 24.

 

The 37-year-old set the record when he smashed home a penalty in the 65th minute at the 974 Stadium in Doha to give Portugal the lead in the Group H clash with the Black Stars.

He won the spot-kick himself when he was brought down by a challenge from Mohammed Salisu.
