World Cup: Portugal Avoids Late Scare to Win Against Ghana

World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo proves to be the man for the big occasion, keeping his cool and scoring the penalty- Portugal’s World Cup quest begins with a win


Ronaldo has now scored at a record 5 World Cups. Ghana’s Salisu brings the ex-United striker down in the box and the referee points to the spot. Before the match, Ronaldo had the spotlight on him following the ‘mutual termination‘ of his contract with Manchester United. True to his nature, Cristiano Ronaldo ensured this remained the case.

In the 74th minute, Ghana equalized through Andre Ayew. A pull-back by Mohammed Kudus across the goal creates the chance. Ayew is then replaced by his brother Jordan a few minutes later.

Fernando Santos replaces Neves with Rafael Leao as Portugal restore their lead through Joao Felix. Close range, and tidy finish. 🥶

Instant results that the manager Fernando Santos was proud of. Substitute Rafael Leao scores the third goal just minutes after the second. This gives Portugal a foothold over proceedings as the game heads to added time.

In the 89th minute, Ghana get a second goal, leading to nervy final minutes of the fixture. Inaki Williams creeps up on Portugal goalkeeper Costa and almost snatches a point from Portugal.

An exciting end to a rather slow start as Portugal begin their 2022 Qatar World Cup quest with a win against Ghana in their Group H opening fixture.
