Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo leaves a press conference following their controversial victory over Ghana at the World Cup.
After opening the scoring with an emphatic penalty in the second half, Ronaldo made history by becoming the first male player to score in five different World Cups.
Andre Ayew leveled things for Ghana before Joao Felix and Rafael Leao finished off Bruno Fernandes’s deft pass. Usman Bukhari scored a late goal for Ghana and the game ended 3–2.
The Ghanaians are furious as the penalty converted by Ronaldo was questionable and cost the Black Stars the game.
Ronaldo, who was named man of the match, spoke for only 2 minutes and 12 seconds at the press conference and left just as questions were about to be asked about the penalty decision.
“It’s a moment that makes me very proud. That chapter (United) is closed. I’m here to win. The rest doesn’t matter,” he said.
Black Stars coach Otto Edo criticized the decision, calling it a gift to the Portuguese legend.
