It seems every time Ronaldo scores a goal it breaks a record of some kind, and so it was again, as Portugal took on Ghana in Group H.
After a fairly dour first half, Cristiano scored a penalty goal for Portugal in the 65th minute, before the match really came alive.
Andre Ayew equalised for Ghana just eight minutes later, but African joy was short lived, as Joao Felix went bang-bang to make it 3-1 to Portugal.
Just when it seemed the Europeans had the match won, Osman Bukari scored for Ghana, ensuring a nervy final 11 minutes or so for Portugal.
They hung on, though, and now sit comfortably at the top of the group.
It means Ronaldo becomes the first man to score at five different World Cups, a remarkable feat of longevity.
He matches the feats of Brazil’s Marta and Canada’s Christine Sinclair who have also scored at five different World Cups.
In the earlier Group H match, South Korea and Uruguay played out a 0-0 draw.
