Cristiano Ronaldo had his opening match against Ghana on Thursday. He made history as the first male player to score in 5 consecutive world cups.

The star player and the Portugal captain scored at the 65th minute of the game by penalty. It was his 118th goal for his country.

Portugal won the game 3-2.  Joao Felix and Rafael Leao helped the team to take the lead and win the match.

Ronaldo is 37 years old and has a brilliant talent of scoring goals. He has had 18 appearances in the world cup leading the Portugal team.

Recently on Tuesday the star player was removed from Manchester united. The decision was mutual and the player has closed the chapter.

The Portugal star made his debut in 2003. But he scored after 10 months in Euro 2004 against Greece.

His first world cup goal was a penalty with the win of 2-0 against Iran. Then he scored next after four years in the South Africa world cup.

The star player is behind one goal to reach the same goal by Portugal star Eusebio. Eusebio helped Portugal to reach 3 in the 1966 world cup.
