Ronaldo becomes first man to score at five World Cups

Sports Desk :

On Thursday, when Cristiano Ronaldo scored the opening goal for Portugal in their match against Ghana at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, he became the first player to score at five men’s World Cups.

After free agent Ronaldo was hauled down in the box by Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu, Ronaldo, at age 37, converted the ensuing penalty.

After a foul by Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu in the box, Ronaldo, 37 years old, converted the ensuing penalty kick.

With his fifth goal, Ronaldo has passed the four-goal mark set by Pele (Brazil), Uwe Seeler (West Germany), and Miroslav Klose (Germany).

Ronaldo also extended his own world record tally of international goals to 118.

With Manchester United’s release of Ronaldo from his contract on Tuesday, he is currently without a club.

It all comes from an interview in which Ronaldo expressed his disdain for the club and manager Erik ten Hag, prompting the decision.

Ronaldo’s departure was described as “mutually decided” by both sides.

“The club thanks him for his enormous contribution during two seasons at Old Trafford,” said a statement released by the organization.
