Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of Portugal, broke Lionel Messi’s World Cup goals record on Thursday evening.
The 37-year-old accomplished this after scoring a penalty in Portugal’s 3-2 World Cup victory over Ghana.
In the 65th minute, the former Manchester United attacker converted a penalty to give Portugal the lead.
His teammates, Joao Felix and Rafael Leao, also scored against Ghana during the encounter at Stadium 974 (Ras Abu Aboud).
Ronaldo now has eight World Cup goals, while Messi has seven.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner will hope to continue his impressive display for Portugal when they face Uruguay on Monday in their next World Cup game.
