After scoring the first goal in Portugal’s World Cup match against Ghana on Thursday, Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score at five different World Cups.
He surpassed Pele and the Germans Miroslav Klose and Uwe Seeler, who also scored in four FIFA World Cups. Ronaldo also increased the number of goals he has scored for his country, which is a global record, to 118. Ronaldo scored his eighth World Cup goal in his career with the normally ice-cold penalty kick, capping up a turbulent week that saw the star forward shockingly leave Manchester United following weeks of hostilities with the team.
