Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes Europe's All-Time Leading Scorer

Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes Europe's All-Time Leading Scorer

Off the top of his head, Cristiano Ronaldo scored yet another goal, set a European record and eliminated Morocco from the World Cup.

The Portugal superstar headed home in just the fourth minute of the Group B encounter in Moscow to surpass former Hungary and Spain striker Ferenc Puskas and move his tally to 85 on his 152nd appearance for his country.

Portugal inexplicably lost control of the game despite managing to beat Morocco 1-0 in the World Cup Group B match today and were lucky not to get themselves in more trouble, coach Fernando Santos said.

Before the match Portugal coach Fernando Santos said his team must not exclusively rely on their captain but, once again, it was Ronaldo who proved to be the match victor, though his performance was not as spectacular as his display in the 3-3 against Spain.

Portuguese defender, Pepe has been speaking ahead of the game and he is full of praise for his Cristiano Ronaldo.

Africa's performance at this year's world cup has not been impressive.

Ronaldo has now scored Portugal's last five goals in the World Cup, dating back to the 2014 tournament in Brazil, and now is the second leading worldwide goalscorer of all time. - Morocco have lost seven of their last nine World Cup matches (W1 D1), failing to score in over half of those games (5).

Melania Trump 'hates' to see children separated from families at U.S. border
Sessions openly admitted when announcing the policy that children would be ripped away from their parents. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called on Trump to end family separation during an appearance Friday on CNN .

Ronaldo, 33, followed his hat trick in last Friday's 3-3 draw with Spain by scoring his 85th career goal for Portugal in the Russian capital to overtake Puskas, who played for Hungary from 1945 to 1956 and for whom Federation Internationale de Football Association has named its Goal of the Year Award.

"We're nearly there (knockout stages) and then we'll see".

He added: "If we put three [players] on Ronaldo, I don't know how we would mark the others".

Mehdi Benatia forced a smart low save from Rui Patricio at a corner for Morocco, before Hakim Ziyach skipped his way into the Portugal area, his goal-bound effort blocked by an outstretched leg.

Morocco need to bounce back from their agonising defeat against Iran but Portugal, and Ronaldo in particular, pose Herve Renard's men a monumental challenge at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

"We have to run a lot and we have to work hard because this will not be an easy game".
