Cristiano Ronaldo record holder, Portugal tears up against Ghana

World Cup 2022
Stadium 974 (Doha)
Portugal beat Ghana 3-2
Goals for Portugal: Ronaldo (65th), João Felix (78th), Rafael Leão (80th)
Goals for Ghana: A. Ayew (73rd), Bukari (89th)

Portugal did not miss their entry into this 2022 World Cup. Opposed to Ghana, the Portuguese won (3-2) after a mixed performance. Fernando Santos’ men, after Ronaldo’s goal was denied half an hour into the game, had to wait until the second period to see CR7 obtain and conclude a contentious penalty himself (1-0, 65th). Former Marseille André Ayew (1-1, 73rd) thought to revive Ghana.

But just a few minutes later, João Felix (2-1, 78th) and Rafael Leão (3-1, 80th) gave their selection a double advantage. The headed goal from Bukari (3-2, 89th) will not change anything, Portugal come out of it in pain, in particular thanks to a Ronaldo in tears during the Portuguese anthem, and who becomes the first player of the history to mark during five editions of the Mondial.

In the Group H standings, Portugal takes the lead alone ahead of Uruguay and South Korea who had tied (0-0) earlier this Thursday.
