Cristiano Ronaldo goal, Portugal vs Morocco World Cup 2018: Real Madrid forward breaks record with header
Cristiano Ronaldo continued his World Cup 2018 scoring streak with an early header against Morocco, to become Europe’s all-time top scorer with 85 international goals as Portugal sealed an important win.
After scoring a hat-trick in Portugal’s remarkable 3-3 draw against Spain in the second Group B match last Friday, Ronaldo matched Ferenc Puskás’s record as Europe’s all-time leading international marksman.
Puskás scored 84 international goals for Hungary between 1945-1956.
But it took Ronaldo less than five minutes of the Morocco match to finally surpass his tally. He powered home a header as his side raced into an early lead, confirming his place in the record books.
