Cristiano Ronaldo appears unstoppable again after breaking yet another record as the first player ever in history to score in 5 consecutive World cups.

Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo scores a penalty against Ghana.

The Portuguese forward made his fifth world cup appearance in the ongoing FIFA 2022 world cup in Qatar. It was an iconic appearance for the forward who captained his country's team in their opening match against the Black Stars of Ghana.

The match saw Ghana become the first African country to score in the ongoing contagious tournament being held in Qatar. Ronaldo found the back of the net from the spot after he was brought down on the penalty box.

This came in the second half of the match after his first goal was ruled out as result of pushing away Alexander Djiku.

The foul by Mohammed Salisu that saw Portugal rewarded a penalty which Ronaldo stepped up to smash in his 118th international goal from the spot appeared to be the determining goal before the drama of more goals that followed.

Ghana responded strongly. Kudus stung the palms of Diogo Costa before getting away down the left and delivering a low cross that deflected off Danilo Pereira and fell perfectly for Andre Ayew to turn the ball in from close range.

This time it was Portugal's turn to find an answer, and they duly struck twice in three minutes to win it.

Bruno Fernandes was the architect of both, slipping passes through the Ghana backline for assured finishes from first Joao Felix and then Rafael Leao, the latter's first international goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo was subbed off in the second half of the game to pave way for Rafael Leao who scored his first International goal in Portugal's colors just minutes after he was introduced in the game.

Portugal took control of the match from the first whistle, and nearly turned their early dominance of possession into a tangible reward.

Ronaldo is now the record holder of 5 goals in 5 world cup appearances just in the first group H match which saw Portugal top in the first round of group stages.
