Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes First Man to Score in 5 Different FIFA World Cups

The 37-year-old set the record when he smashed home a penalty in the 65th minute at the 974 Stadium in Doha to give Portugal the lead in the Group H clash with the Black Stars.

He overtakes Pele and Germans Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose, who all scored in four World Cups.

Ronaldo is Portugal’s youngest and oldest goalscorer in the FIFA World Cup.

He scored his first World Cup against Iran in 2006 Germany, aged 21 years and 131 days, and his strike against Ghana in Qatar 2022 came aged 37 years and 292 days.

The only two men to net more than 100 times for their countries are Ronaldo and Daei, who scored 109 goals in 149 games for Iran from 1993-2006 and played for German clubs Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin.
