GGGOOOOOAAAALLLL!!! Portugal 3-1 Ghana | Leao17:37, Marc Mayo79 mins: THAT SURELY IS THAT! Fernandes races clear and rolls in Leao to his left, who places a neat effort past Zigi.
Likewise, Silva and Fernandes are roaming in a bid to force an opening against this well-manned Ghana defence. 16:15, Marc Mayo15 mins: Very good play from Kudus, hustling the ball off Otavio before Ayew wins a free kick. A chance for Ghana to build out their measly 27 per cent of possession now. The ball eventually finds Williams on the stretch, but the striker cannot bring it down to run at goal. CHANCE PORTUGAL! 16:13, Marc Mayo13 mins: Portugal just creeping up the pitch and working moves in closer and closer areas to the box. A nice one-touch move ends in Djiku clearing a good low cross. The corner is taken quickly and a looping ball to the back post looks Ronaldo bound...

16:41, Marc Mayo40 mins: That was only a momentary interlude in Portugal’s domination of the game but a lack of cutting edge means we remain goalless as half-time beckons. If this World Cup has taught us anything, it is to take your chances... 16:37, Marc Mayo38 mins: A first corner for Ghana is swung in by Kudus but Neves is there to clear. Another ball in by the Ajax man has to be turned behind the goal by Fernandes.

16:44, Marc Mayo44 mins: That Kudus lad has a touch and a half. Some delightful dribbling brings Ghana out of trouble and wins a foul. But, they give it away quickly and Cancelo’s dangerous cross evades everybody. CHANCE PORTUGAL! 16:42, Marc Mayo42 mins: It would be the perfect time to score for Portugal and Ronaldo looks for a glimpse of goal down the left. Shot blocked. Portugal come again and a big cross to the back post goes over the striker, who stops as Guerreiro fires a shot that simply bounces off Ronaldo! Felix then commits a foul in the scramble to end the chance.
Portugal 3-2 Ghana LIVE! World Cup 2022 result, match stream and latest updates todayPortugal vs Ghana LIVE! Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo shrugged off his bitter split with Manchester United to claim yet another record as he became the first player to score in five World Cups with a penalty to help steer his side to a nervy 3-2 win over Ghana on Thursday. Ronaldo, a free agent after his second stint at Old Trafford ended abruptly on Tuesday, thumped home a dubiously-awarded penalty in the 65th minute after a coming together with Mohammed Salisu.
(AP)16:24, Marc Mayo23 mins: The Ghana fans are having a great time behind Zigi’s goal, whistles and trumpets playing as they dance in the stands. Not enough dancing at this World Cup, I must say. Here’s one of the two big Ronaldo chances from earlier:16:22, Marc Mayo21 mins: Good battling from Salisu to hold off his man and win a Ghana throw, which came right in front of his dugout and earned a rapturous response. The Black Stars are digging in admirably, even enjoying more time on the ball now with Kudus almost slipping Williams in behind. 16:19, Marc Mayo19 mins: Felix has the free role to run with the ball from deep while partnering Ronaldo up top.
Goalscorer Ayew is also off, handing the captain’s armband to Partey before coming off for brother Jordan Ayew. Leao replaces Neves for Portugal. 17:33, Marc Mayo75 mins: That goal has shocked Portugal. A fine bit of play from Ghana and they are only 15 minutes away from a real confidence-boosting point. But can anyone find a winner? GGGOOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!!! Portugal 1-1 Ghana | Ayew17:30, Marc Mayo72 mins: ALL SQUARE! Guess who? Kudus with the fine run down the left, a simple cut-back and Ayew buries it! Ghana score Africa’s first goal at the 2022 World Cup.

A bit of an escape for Ghana... 16:28, Marc Mayo28 mins: Ghana have certainly grown into the game but Portugal remain on top. Partey and Kudus have done a very decent job in taking the pressure off in possession. Silva gets down the left and smartly cuts it back to Felix, who gets under his shot and skies it. 16:26, Marc Mayo26 mins: Ronaldo starting to drop deep and drag defenders away, allowing his teammates to run in behind. Also known as Man City’s ‘Haaland tactic’ of deception. Let’s see if they can make it work.
Ghana will come again... Foul. 16:36, Marc Mayo36 mins: Felix is unhappy about being sent to the deck as Portugal draw up another move, Otavio firing a low effort straight at the goalkeeper. 16:34, Marc Mayo33 mins: More lacklustre crossing from Portugal and Zigi collects a pretty aimless Otavio ball in. The Selecao’s pressure is gently ramping up again. GGOOOAA-NO! 16:31, Marc Mayo31 mins: Ronaldo bumps off his marker and places his shot home... but the referee’s whistle had gone for a foul! Djiku did just about get elbowed out of the way there and it’s not enough of a soft decision to be overturned by VAR.
