Football history created by Cristiano Ronaldo... a new achievement in the 2022 World Cup
Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo entered history after he became the first player to score in five World Cup finals, by opening the scoring for his country against his Ghanaian counterpart Thursday in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, in the match that ended with a difficult victory for Portugal over Ghana, 3-2, in a strong and enjoyable match.
Cristiano Ronaldo succeeded in scoring Portugal's first and eighth goal in Ronaldo's eighth goal in the history of his participation in the World Cup tournaments from a penalty kick that he grabbed himself and successfully hit the Ghanaian net, and certainly this goal will contribute to easing the pressure on the 37-year-old who found himself vulnerable to criticism after his attack on His English team, Manchester United, and its Dutch coach, Eric ten Hag, led to the termination of his contract with the club by mutual consent, a few hours before the opening match for Portugal.
Ronaldo opened his World Cup tally with a goal in 2006, then represented him in 2010 and 2014, before scoring four in 2018, including a hat-trick against Spain in the match that ended in a 3-3 draw.
Thus, Cristiano Ronaldo, the 37-year-old, surpassed the Brazilian legend Pele, who scored in four copies (1958, 1962, 1966 and 1970), and the Germans Ove Zeller, who scored in the same versions in which Pele and Miroslav Klose scored (2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014).
Ronaldo also consolidated his record as the best international scorer with 118 goals in 192 games, and became one goal away from the legend Eusebio's equation as the best Portuguese scorer in the World Cup finals, but the latter scored all his nine goals in one edition in 1966.
