Portugal Beats Ghana in Qatar 2022

Ghana became the first African country to score a goal in the first leg encounters at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022

Despite scoring two goals against the Portuguese side in their first leg encounter, the West African giants succumbed to the Portuguese led by Cristiano Ronaldo, who opened the flood of goals after the 65th minute through a spot – kick

The Portuguese side dominated play in the first department of the game, amassing about 72% of ball possessions whilst Ghana only managed about 21% of ball possession

Ronaldo’s 30th minute goal was disallowed because he shoved off Ghana’s defender, Alexander Djiku to score, but the referee from the United States of America (USA), would have none of that

The Black Stars of Ghana made no attempt at goal in the first half of proceedings

In the second half, Ronaldo made history by joining the likes of World Pele and Miroslav Klose, to score in five different editions of the world cup, despite suffering a termination of contract from his club, Manchester United

Portugal was fortunate to be awarded a very controversial penalty in the 65th minute of proceedings and Ronaldo hit the back of the net with ease, thus scoring his first goal in the Qatar 2022 tourney, having played his 118th appearance for his country

His opposite number, Andrew Dede Ayew, responded minutes later with a free header to draw level, but that was not enough to unsettle the Portuguese

The European side responded swiftly with two more goals with goals from Portugal’s frontman Felix and Leao

It seemed that would have settled it all until substitute, Bukari from Ghana scored an unexpected header to give the Ghanaian side a needed second goal

At the end of the ninety – ninth minute, the match ended 3 – 2 in favour of Portugal
