Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Santos, the members of the team and all the Portugal fans sweated cold at the end of the game against Ghana in Qatar 2022. Shortly after the end and with the score at 3-2, goalkeeper Diogo Costa committed a mistake that could cost the victory to the champion of the Eurocopa de Naciones in 2016.

Luckily, for the ‘1’ and his teammates, everything was scared. In any case, the Portuguese goalkeeper looked discouraged at the conclusion of the actions in the 974 stadium. Then, the figure of the leader appeared (not only because he wears the captain’s ribbon) to motivate his teammate, since they started the World Cup with victory.

Diogo Costa went to the changing room area with a confused expression. Then, Cristiano appeared on the scene. The striker, who scored one of the three goals, approached the Porto goalkeeper and spoke a few words so that one of the starters could also join the celebration for the first step in the World Cup.

“Smile, we won. It didn’t end in a goal, then? You gotta smile, we fucking won”Ronaldo told Costa. The reference of the 7 of the Portuguese has to do with the action in which Diogo lost the ball inside the area and was left for Iñaki Williams to define for the possible 3-3. However, the forward of the African representative slipped and wasted a great chance.

Immediately afterwards, the highest reference of the national team added: “One victory and we pass. You can smile, damn. Let’s go”. At the same time, ‘CR7’ has been energetic with his gestures to address the goalkeeper, who received the consolation of his colleague José Sá, who accompanies him at all times and gives him a hug.

Cristiano Ronaldo, record man

In the 65th minute of the game, Cristiano fell over the Ghana area and the referee awarded a penalty for Portugal. How could it be otherwise, Ronaldo asked for the ball to be in charge of carrying out the execution. After the whistle, the forward, currently a free agent, beat goalie Lawrence Ati-Zigi to open the account.

In addition to making it 1-0, the striker made history because he became the first footballer to score in five editions of the World Cup: Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014, Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022.

When is Portugal playing in Qatar 2022?

The cast led by Fernando Santos will face Uruguay on Monday, November 28, in the second day of group H of the World Cup. The match will begin at 11 in the morning (Peruvian time) at the Icónico de Lusail stadium.
