Qatar: Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo holds the record for scoring 5 World Cup goals.
Portugal and Ghana are playing in FIFA World Cup football series. Cristiano Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot in the 65th minute of the match to register his team’s first goal of the World Cup. Ronaldo broke Lionel Messi’s record by scoring a goal today.
Messi became the fifth player to score in four different World Cups (2006, 2014, 2018, 2022). Earlier Pele, Uwe Seiler, Miroslav Klose and Cristiano Ronaldo had also achieved the same feat. However, Cristiano Ronaldo scored in today’s match to surpass Messi’s record as the top scorer in five World Cups – 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018, 2022
Ronaldo also holds the record as the highest goalscorer in FIFA World Cup history. Messi has played 20 matches in the FIFA World Cup so far and scored 7 goals. At the same time, Ronaldo, who had scored 7 goals so far in the World Cup series, scored the eighth goal today.
For the Portuguese team, the famous player Eusebio scored 9 goals in the World Cup series, which is the highest record. Ronaldo needs two more goals to break this. It is expected that he will break it in this Qatar World Cup series itself.
Meanwhile, Ghana scored an equalizer in the 73rd minute of the game to make it 1 – 1.
