Media is wrong about Ronaldo’s scoring record

A couple of weeks ago, the presenter Piers Morgan spoke with Ronaldo for an interview. Morgan made the following statement: “Just recently, Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record by becoming the first football player in the competition’s history to score in all five World Cups. A great achievement. amazing. I want to congratulate Cristiano.”

However, the information that Morgan sent was disregarded by a significant number of analysts and followers later on. Ronaldo is not the first player to score in all five World Cups that they have participated in. Marta Vieira da Silva, better known simply as Marta, has the record for becoming the first person to score at the world’s five most prestigious football tournaments.

The Brazilian female player scored goals at the 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2019 World Cups, putting her name on the scoreboard each time. At the 2019 World Cup, female standout Christine Sinclair of the Canadian team followed in Marta’s footsteps almost immediately after she had accomplished the same goal.

Brazil’s Globo commented: “To be more specific, keep in mind that Ronaldo is the very first male player in the history of the World Cup to score in all five tournaments. Marta has the record for becoming the first player in World Cup history to score in all five tournaments.”

CR7 established yet another career record as he participated in and scored during Portugal’s 3-2 victory over Ghana. He made history by competing in ten major events in a row, becoming the first player from Europe to do so (World Cup, EURO). Cristiano Ronaldo has competed in ten major tournaments in a row, beginning in 2004 and continuing through the present day. These tournaments include the World Cup in 2006, the European Championship in 2004, 2008, 2016, and 2020, and the Olympic Games in 2004, 2008, and 2022.

The Athletic newspaper reported that the Three Lions will face Gregg Berhalter’s team at 2pm on November 26, with captain Harry Kane completely healthy.

England’s No. 10 captain injured his right ankle in the opening match of the World Cup, England 6-2 Iran, returned to training on Wednesday and trained with the whole team yesterday (November 24).

Coach Gareth Southgate has confirmed, Harry Kane is “in good condition” to be able to play with England against the US.

This source said, the captain of the Three Lions decided to use the whole starting lineup that won 6-2 over Iran, to fight the US for the goal of getting tickets early to the round of 16 in Qatar.

Once again, nine of the 11 starters in last year’s EURO 2020 final, will start, including Raheem Sterling, Harry Maguire and Jude Bellingham.

Specifically, guarding England’s goal is none other than Everton’s keeper Jordan Pickford, an indispensable element in Southgate’s plan.

The defense set will again include Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, John Stones and Kieran Tripper, while the midfield trio will be filled by Southgate named Mason Mount, Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice.

On the public field, Raheem Sterling will play with captains Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka. Phil Foden and Jack Grealish will reprise their roles as substitutes.

Southgate stated, England did not underestimate the US even though they only won 1 point to start (draw 1-1 Wales).

“We know the quality of the US team and have a lot of respect for them. We do not underestimate them. England will be playing a very motivated opponent, with good contact, requiring us to do our best to make history (beating the US for the first time in the World Cup).

We are determined to win to get the ticket to the next round as soon as possible, which is our first goal in Qatar.”

England will officially win tickets to the round of 16 of the World Cup 2022 before 1 round, if it wins the US tonight.

Probable teams:

England: Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham; Saka, Mount, Sterling; Kane

America: Turner; Dest, Zimmerman, Ream, A. Robinson; McKennie, Adams, Musah; Weah, Sargent, Pulisic
