Cristiano Ronaldo has become Europe’s all-time leading scorer with 85 goals after he found the back of the net once again in the Portuguese’s 2018 FIFA World Cup clash against Morocco.
The prolific Real Madrid man scored early on in the game, to propel his side to the top of Group B, at least until Spain plays Iran later today.
The 33-year old is the 2018 World Cup’s top scorer so far with four goals in two games. He managed a hat-trick in Portugal’s opening game against Spain, which ended 3-3.
Portugal’s win also jeopardized Morocco’s chances of progression in the tournament, as they have no point from the two games they have played. The Atlas Lions lost their first game against Iran by a solitary goal.
They are the second African side to have lost both games played so far, after Egypt lost to host Russia on Tuesday after going down to Uruguay in their first game.
For Morocco, a win for Spain against Iran later today will effectively bundle them out of the competition. Egypt will also be eliminated if Uruguay win against Saudi Arabia.
