Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, penalty scorer against Ghana on Thursday, became the first player to score in five different World Cups, outperforming legend Pele and Germany’s Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose. Ronaldo scored his first goal of the 2022 World Cup against the Black Stars when Portugal entered Group H, converting a penalty he himself obtained (65th).
CR7 scored eight goals in total (including three penalties): one in 2006 (Iran), one in 2010 (North Korea), one in 2014 (Ghana), four in 2018 (three against Spain and one against Morocco ) and therefore one in 2022. So far, he has never found the opening in a knockout game.
