On the way to the game, Ghana put up a tough fight against Cristiano Ronaldo and co as they fought back after being 1 goal down within minutes. Joao Felix, however, came to the rescue of Portugal, thanks to a nice pass from Bruno Fernandes that gave Portugal the lead again. Later, Rafael Leao scored the third goal for Portugal, but Ghana gave the Ronaldo-led side some jittery moments until the final whistle when Osman Bukari scored late around the 89th minute.

Ronaldo, 37, wanted to showcase his talents to potential new clubs after his contract with Manchester United was terminated this week. After wasting two good chances in the first half, he tumbled under a challenge from Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu to earn a penalty.

Driving away after the ball hit the back of the net, a smiling Ronaldo performed his usual jump and spin in the air. He has now scored in every World Cup since his first in 2006 and has a record 118 international goals. (with PTI inputs)
