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.
