Cristiano Ronaldo stated his club future “does not matter” after a “beautiful moment” which saw him etched his name into the history books as the first man to score in five World Cups during Portugal’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Ghana on Thursday.

The 37-year-old’s thumping penalty put Fernando Santos’s side ahead in the Group H encounter at Stadium 974. Ronaldo’s goal comes on the back of a week when he has dominated the headlines, conducting an interview that sent shockwaves across the world of football due to his immense criticism of Manchester United, with it then announced on Tuesday that a mutual termination of his contract was agreed. “It was a beautiful moment, my fifth World Cup. We won. We started with a good foot, it’s a very important win,” he told a press conference. (TNN)
