Cristiano Ronaldo means goals, and Cristiano Ronaldo means goals records. An incredible record has been added to the Portuguese superstar’s record. The Portugal captain became the first player to score five World Cup goals when he scored from the penalty spot against Ghana at the World Cup in Qatar today.
