Photos: Ronaldo makes history as Portugal beat Ghana 3-2

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first men’s player to score in five World Cups when Portugal opened their campaign against Ghana, the lowest-ranked team in the tournament.

Despite his recent struggles and controversies at the club level, Ronaldo spectacularly led the line for his national team in Thursday’s game, which ended in a 3-2 victory for Portugal.

After a goalless first half, Ronaldo converted from the penalty spot in the 65th minute to give Portugal a 1-0 lead against Ghana.
