The edition is being held in Qatar 2022, and so far, we have seen some incredible matches, with plenty more still to come. One player who has been particularly impressive so far is Portugal’s, Cristiano Ronaldo.
There’s no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best football players in history. He has achieved amazing things with his club team, Real Madrid, and his country team, Portugal. With all this success comes a lot of pressure to perform – but Ronaldo always seems to rise to the occasion.
On the fifth match day of the FIFA World Cup 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo made history by scoring an absolutely stunning goal in 60 seconds against Ghana. This latest goal means that CR7 has surpassed Pelé and Miroslav Klose as the all-time top scorer in competitive games for both club and country.
This goal was one for the history books – and it will undoubtedly go down as one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s most memorable moments on the pitch. “This was a beautiful moment,” Ronaldo said. “The world record, the only player to score in five World Cups, makes me very proud.”
The victory marked the start of their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign, and at 34 years old, Ronaldo is showing no signs of slowing down. Portugal won 3-2 thanks to some other great goals by Ronaldo later in the game, but his first strike will always be remembered as something truly special. If he can continue this stunning form into the finals of the FIFA World Cup, Portugal could well be crowned champions.
