Cristiano Ronaldo creates history with 4th goal at World Cup 2018

Cristiano Ronaldo creates history with 4th goal at World Cup 2018

But as this World Cup has shown thus far, the unexpected has come to be expected. Things happen more naturally, sometimes passes that could be more hard, he facilitates. We're very happy with him and his performance. I hope this World Cup will be Cristiano's. Renard said he was still smarting from the disappointment but said that the players alone were not to blame. "The first game was a good sign for us".

After an injury-time own goal against Iran, Morocco will have to pick themselves up and rally in time for the game, and Herve Renard's side can still draw some positives from the defeat. They've always played to their full intensity on the pitch and we have to respond to that.

"We want to score from the opening minute, even though that won´t be easy".

The Morocco defender Nabil Dirar added: "Tomorrow will be a final for us, an important battle".

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the second leading worldwide goalscorer of all time after finding the back of the net against Morocco. "I´m here to enjoy the World Cup", Blatter told reporters before stepping inside a luxurious Moscow hotel.

Daei scored 109 goals for Iran in a 13-year global career between 1993 and 2006.

Should he be afforded a chance to make amends from kick-off or off the bench, all eyes will be on the resilience of the unfortunate St. Pauli player.

The two teams met at the 1986 World Cup with Morocco recording a surprise 3-1 victory, which eliminated Portugal from the tournament.

Cristiano Ronaldo is again partnered in attack by Goncalo Guedes, despite the Valencia forward's unimpressive form in a 3-3 draw with Spain. His third goal in that game was also the first time he'd scored from direct free-kick in a major worldwide tournament, at the 45th attempt. In the fourth minute of the Wednesday's World Cup match, Ronaldo picked up his fourth goal of the tournament on an incredibly aggressive header after an impressive cross.
