Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal in Portugal vs. Ghana was disallowed for prior foul

The Portugal team approaches the Ghana area and generates scoring chances to open the scoring in the match for the first date of group H of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo had the clearest of the match and even managed to score, however, the goal was disallowed due to a previous foul by the striker.

At 30 minutes, the ‘Commander’ received the ball in the box, fought with defender Alexander Djiku, won the position and went one-on-one with the goalkeeper. The popular ‘CR7’ defined with quality and scored the 1-0 which sparked an uproar among the Portuguese fans, but the party ended in a few seconds.

The referee annulled the previous action, considering it an infringement by Cristiano Ronaldo against the Ghanaian defender. The judge’s decision left the former Real Madrid soccer player upset, as he was already about to celebrate with the fans.

It is important to mention that the ‘Commander’ is playing his fifth World Cup event. In this type of competition, the player has seven goals and now, at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, he hopes to increase his scoring streak.

Portugal vs. Ghana: previous

As for sports, the Ghanaian team is emerging as a tough rival for Portugal, especially due to the physical strength and speed that the African squad proposes. The ‘Black Stars’ have some nationalized players, such as Iñaki Williams and Tariq Lamptey; and established, such as Mohammed Salisu, Thomas Partey and Jordan Ayew.

In the same way, it is worth mentioning that Cristiano Ronaldo will have the opportunity to put his name in the history of the World Cups: he will join the select list of footballers who played five editions and could set the scoring record in each of those tournaments, something that no one has achieved.
