The only male player in World Cup history with five goals is Cristiano Ronaldo as he netted his 5th in Qatar in Portugal’s opening match of the 2022 World Cup against Ghana.

In the match against Uruguay, the former Real Madrid player only slightly distracted Uruguayan goalkeeper Sergio Rochet, preventing him from seeing Bruno Fernandes’ shot. The striker hurried to claim the goal as his own, but snitches are everywhere in modern football, even on the Rhila, the official Adidas ball. There was no impact with the ball after it left Bruno’s boot, according to a chip on the ball that tracks when contact is made.

The striker’s happiness did not last long after the chip took his goal away, and his expressions of dismay as he listened to the scorer’s name be officially announced revealed how he truly felt. He raised his head a few times to make sure it wasn’t him pursuing the target.

According to Edu Aguirre on El Chiringuito, Portugal has curiously decided to seek that Cristiano is awarded the goal, even though this request has not yet been submitted to FIFA, a report tells MARCA.
