2022 World Cup: Ronaldo Makes History In Portugal Vs Ghana Five-Goal Thriller

Cristiano Ronaldo made history as he became the first player to score in five World Cup appearances in Portugal’s 3-2 win over Ghana on Thursday.

Ronaldo, who recently left Man United on mutual agreement, netted the opening goal of the encounter via a penalty in the 65th minute.

However, the Black Stars leveled score in the 73rd minute through Andre Ayew, who netted from a close range.

But Portugal responded with two goals in two minutes to seal the points – Joao Felix converting a delightfully clipped finish and substitute Rafael Leao coolly stroking in just seconds after coming on.

Osman Bukhari headed in a late consolation for Ghana and there could have been real drama in the ninth minute of stoppage time.

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

Victory means Portugal top Group H after Uruguay and South Korea played out a goalless draw earlier on Thursday.

    The penalty destroyed the game. It disrupted Ghana’s game plan, the referee and the VAR team gifted the Portuguese the penalty. I am so disappointed

    Thank you Ghana for proving that you deserve one of the slot in Africa. If not for the penalty this would have been 2-2 draw. If it was the super eagles who foolishly Sach Rohr, they would have collected 4-0 or 5-0.

      No if it was the SE it would have been 6 unreplied GOALS

    Fifa must put the referee and the VAR team to some strict review. You simply can not do this, the game has come too far for robberies like this. Let the game be fair

  • Collins Id 1 year ago

    You see how the ghanian coach distroyed that game plan with his awkward changes.
    How can he remove his two best players bcos he equalised a goal, he wasnt even determine to win the game, he seems okay with a draw. I hope he improves in up coming matches, let us paint the sky black with our stars,
    Go for the title great mother land africa is behind your back

  • Moses Inyang 1 year ago

    It’s payback time for ‘fraudulent penalty’.Remember South Africa?

      Jealousy will kill you one.

    • Fetch 1 year ago

      Put rivalry and to some extent hate aside. Does treatment like this to an African team make you really happy. The game must be fair

  • Moses Inyang 1 year ago

    I don’t know why the matches are not played daily or every other day so that Ghana can be booted out in three days

  • It is obvious Ghana has got their coaching set up right. A very tight defensive approach (with a 5-man backline and lone striker) and tactical discipline.

    Portugal struggled to deal with that brick wall for over 45 minutes. Once they managed to breach it, Ghana naturally loosened up a bit to come out to play, coalescing into a 3-man defense and opening up pockets of space to exploit for Portugal.

    1. Qudus is a real talent and will be on the first 11 of even a Brazilian national team.

    2. Ayew, though not the most talented on his team, is a hard nut and leader by example. Had a real presence, which left the team after his withdrawal.

    3. Portugal, while chasing more goals to close out the game, exposed themselves at the back with a goalkeeper not half as good as their number 1, Rui Patricio.

    4. Patricio is as hard as nail and hardly gets beaten.

    5. Otto’s plan it appears is a draw against Portugal and Uruguay and a win against South Korea to pick up a decent 5 points and qualify.

    6. With Otto, Houghton, and the other assemblage of the coaching crew plus over 70% new playing personnel and foreign born players, Ghana is a lot more changed team from the Afcon and even WCQs.

    7. Just comparing the sheer focus, pluck, and diehard defending of Djiku and Amartey to the butty, easy-go approach of Ekong and Akpoguma, Lollzzz. Ekong being captain and therefore getting a guaranteed starting shirt I think it’s a problem on its own.

  • Moses Inyang 1 year ago

    South Korea and Uruguay victories over lame Ghana loading

  • Good for Ghana. Better team than tge afcon and wc qualifier.

    But they lost. They should play with big mentality to win Uruguay and Korea. This is always the problem with afrivan countries. Low mentality at crucial stages.

    I see most African countries coming home. Though I hope it is not.

    With a good mentality Nigeria should have drawn or even beat Portugal. Chukwueze lost a golden chance. Dennis madness in taking penalty. Low mentality and indiscipline.

    I am always disappointed when Nigerians on this forum struggle to argue with fake Ghanaians on this forum. You don’t argue with a smaller country to you. Countries who rely on you and who gets support from you. No. We do that with only south Africa or eben Egypt in Africa.
