World Cup 2022: Portugal – Ghana 3: 2 – Ronaldo, Felix and Leao score

Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is the second oldest player to score at the World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score in five Fifa World Cups as Portugal started their season with a thrilling win over Ghana.

Ronaldo played for the first time since his controversial TV interview last week and subsequent sacking by Manchester United following the comments.

And the 37-year-old scored the first goal from the penalty spot after being brought down in the box by Ghana’s Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu.

Captain Ronaldo had a couple of chances early on but a low shot was smothered by Lawrence Ati-Zigi and he also headed wide of the far post.

The striker was disallowed a goal for a shove at Alexander Djiku, while Ghana at the other end didn’t have a single shot in the early stages.

The Africans improved in the second period when Mohammed Kudus drilled just wide of the far post to secure Andre Ayew’s equalizer from close range.

But Portugal responded with two goals in two minutes to secure the points – Joao Felix converted a superbly sliced ​​finish and substitute Rafael Leao scored coolly just seconds after coming on.

Osman Bukhari headed in Ghana’s late consolation goal and drama could have erupted in the ninth minute of added time.

Goalkeeper Diogo Costa put the ball down, seemingly unaware that Inaki Williams was behind him, but after trying to intercept the ball, the Ghana striker slipped at the crucial moment and a shattered shot was cleared off the line.

The win means Portugal top Group H after Uruguay and South Korea held a goalless draw earlier on Thursday.
