Cristiano Ronaldo made history by becoming the first player to score at five World Cups to lead Portugal to a 3-2 win over Ghana on day five of the World Cup in Qatar.

The 37-year-old scored a huge penalty in the 61st minute to give Fernando Santos’ side the lead in the Group H encounter at the 974 Stadium in Doha for Manchester United.

Portugal’s lead was short-lived as Ghana captain Andre Ayew equalized in the 73rd minute, marking the first goal by an African team at this year’s championship.

Jubilant Black Stars fans erupted in cheers after watching their team fail to fire in the opening 45 minutes.

The celebrations were short-lived though as Portugal warmed up for a 3-1 lead after 80 minutes with two goals from Joao Felix and Rafael Leao in the ensuing seven minutes.

However, all Portuguese hopes of a comfortable victory were dashed by Ghana’s Osman Bukari’s 3-2 win in the 89th minute.

A tense nine minutes of extra time followed, but Portugal managed to take the three points and move to the top of the group.

Next up is Portugal against Uruguay on Monday. Ghana play South Korea on the same day.

Brazil against Serbia

Brazil opened their World Cup campaign in style as Richarlison fired the tournament favorites to a 2-0 win over Serbia at the Lusail Stadium.

The 25-year-old striker scored a little less than an hour into the Group G match, and not long after with a spectacular second goal in the 73rd minute.

Serbia, who put up fierce resistance in the first two-thirds of the game, had to hunt for shadows as the Brazilian players spun the ball and regularly attacked the opponent’s penalty area, underscoring their credibility as the competition’s top scorers.

But there were concerns about star striker Neymar.

The 30-year-old helped the Selecao win the 2013 Confederations Cup and their first Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, but limped off against Serbia in the 80th minute after taking a knock and straining his right ankle.

Neymar already had problems with that leg and the player Paris St. Germaina sat on the bench with his face covered while receiving treatment until the end of the game.

Brazil’s victory kept them at the top of Group G, followed by Switzerland.

On Monday, the South American giants, who are aiming for their sixth World Cup victory, meet Switzerland. On the same day, Serbia plays against Cameroon.

Uruguay vs. South Korea

Uruguay and South Korea kicked off their World Cup campaigns at the Education City Stadium in Doha with a fast-paced match that ended in a goalless draw.

Despite the lack of goals, the atmosphere in the stadium was tense, with South Korean fans banging their drums throughout the game.

Uruguay – known as La Celeste – came closest to scoring when Diego Godin hit the post with a first-half header. Federico Valverde hits the post again in the 89th minute with a long shot.

South Korea also had a few chances and will be frustrated that Hwang Ui-jo couldn’t do more after being caught in the 37th minute.

Switzerland vs Cameroon

Playing at the Al Janoub Stadium, Switzerland overcame a spirited Cameroon side in their Group G match to maintain their unbeaten record in their first World Cup matches.

Striker Breel Embolo scored the winner for Switzerland in the first half.

The 25-year-old was born in Cameroon’s capital, Yaoundé, but moved to Switzerland with his family and became a Swiss citizen shortly after his 18th birthday.

After the goal, Embolo raised his hands in apology as his teammates celebrated around him. He pointed to the Swiss fans behind his goal, then to the Cameroon fans in the opposite corner of the stadium.

Cameroon was better in the first half, while Switzerland pulled away in the second half.

After the 1-0 win, Switzerland will play against Brazil and Cameroon against Serbia on Monday.

Off the pitch:

sensation on social networks

Abubakr Abbass, a 23-year-old Kenyan, has become a fan favorite – and accidental social media sensation – in Qatar.

Seated on a tennis umpire’s chair and draped in a large foam finger, he uses his trusty megaphone to lead the hundreds of fans visiting the historic market, called Souq Waqif, to a nearby subway station.

His helpful tips “Metro? This way. Subway? Like this,” has now become a postman’s catchphrase.

“I saw him on TikTok. I found it very funny. He makes me laugh; It’s such a simple task,” said a young fan wearing a Chelsea football shirt.

Fake video about Ukrainian fans

Al Jazeera has announced that a video attributed to the news network and circulating on social media is fake.

The video claims that three “drunk” Ukrainian soccer fans were arrested who were also spreading “Nazi symbols” in Doha.

“The video in question is completely fake and Al Jazeera has never published any news related to this story,” Al Jazeera said in a statement.

The main message of the video about “Ukrainian Nazis” reflects the pro-Russian disinformation circulating on the Internet.

“The basic Russian export narrative is the alleged ‘Nazi’ character of the Ukrainian political regime,” Kyiv-based analyst Aleksey Kushch told Al Jazeera.

The accusations “serve as a justification for war for both [a] domestic [Russian] audience and for foreigners [audiences]’ said Kushch.

Although there are some openly far-right, ultra-nationalist and white-racist groups in Ukraine, their current influence on Ukrainian political life is limited.
