Ronaldo surpasses Pele, the Germans Miroslav Klose and Uwe Seeler, who each scored four goals in World Cup competition.

Ronaldo also increased the number of goals he has scored for his country to 118, a record.

He was knocked to the ground by Mohammed Salisu’s careless challenge, earning himself a penalty kick.

After criticising the team and manager Erik ten Hag in a TV interview, Manchester United announced this week that Ronaldo will be leaving with immediate effect. However, Ronaldo has shown no signs of stress throughout his whole stay at Old Trafford.

Despite Osman Bukari cutting the score in half in the closing seconds, Portugal won their first World Cup opening game victory since 2006. Joao Felix came up with a spectacular finish to give them the lead, and Rafael Leao added a third.

On Monday, when Ghana plays South Korea, Portugal and Uruguay, who are tied atop the group with three points each, will square off.
