Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first player to score in five different World Cups by netting against Ghana at Stadium 974 in Qatar.
Ronaldo netted a penalty 65 minutes into the Group H match to add the Qatar 2022 edition to the previous World Cups he scored in - Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018.
Southampton defender Mohamed Salisu was controversially judged to have fouled Ronaldo in the penalty area midway through the second half in Doha, and the Portugal skipper picked himself up and dispatched the spot-kick into the middle of the net.
The goal was Ronaldo's eighth in the World Cup across the five different tournaments, with long-term rival Lionel Messi scoring his seventh in Argentina's defeat to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
