Ronaldo breaks Puskas European record

World Cup 2018: Moments That Surprised Football Fans

Cristiano Ronaldo broke the record for most worldwide goals scored by a European player on Wednesday, as he found the net in the fourth minute of Portugal's World Cup match against Morocco. Benatia, playing for Juventus, pushed a Real Madrid player to draw a penalty.

The Barcelona man has exited the last two World Cups in disgrace after being sent off for a goal-line handball against Ghana, and he infamously sank his teeth into Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in 2014.

The game is live on both Viu TV (channel 99) and Now TV World Cup channels (618 and 619).

That should make it an easier day for Suarez, who has 51 global goals and is Uruguay's all-time top scorer.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Spain helped Portugal draw the match against a formidable team, in a Group B encounter.

"For me, the most important thing is to emphasise what the team did against one of the favourites to win this World Cup".

"De Gea is feeling fine".

The original bust, sculpted by local artist Emanuel Santos, had been the subject of much mockery, something the artist said made him sad and was not easy to take.

Teams that were expected to breeze past all opposition in the group stages have already struggled to get over the very first hurdle, and a few overlooked sides have surprised spectators all over the world with some impressive, unexpected results. Morocco can't expect to control play like it did against Iran in their opener, so the North Africans' best chance of victory lies in capitalizing on limited scoring chances, something they haven't done in the World Cup so far.
