Cristiano Ronaldo got on the scoresheet as Portugal edged out Ghana 3-2 in a Group H match at Stadium 974 on Thursday.

After a goalless first half, Ronaldo opened the scoring with a penalty to become the first man to score at five World Cups. 

Andre Ayew equalised for the Black Stars, but Joao Felix and Rafael Leao scored their first World Cup goals to put Portugal 3-1 up. 

Osman Bukari made it a tense finish with a close-range header and Diogo Costa almost handed Inaki Williams a stoppage-time equaliser only for the forward to slip at the vital moment.
