CR7 breaks European record as he scores Portugal’s opener vs Morocco

Cristiano Ronaldo continued to take the World Cup by storm by scoring Portugal’s opening goal in their Group B clash with Morocco.

 The Real Madrid superstar picked up where he left off on Wednesday afternoon as he broke the deadlock with his head against Morocco in only the 4th minute. Ronaldo is now ahead of Russia’s Denis Cheryshev at the top of the World Cup scoring chart with 4 goals and will undoubtedly have his sights set on the Golden Boot.

 His opener at the Luzhniki Stadium meant he overtook Hungary legend Ferenc Puskas as the top scoring European in the history of international football. Ali Daei remains, by some distance, the top scoring international player of all-time. The iconic striker racked up 109 goals for Iran before his retirement in 2006.
