    Cristiano Ronaldo recovered quickly from his exit from Manchester United as he scored Portugal's first goal at the World Cup. The veteran forward netted from the spot just after the hour mark to break the deadlock against Ghana in their first group game at the Qatar tournament on Thursday evening. Ronaldo, 37, was pictured fighting back tears during the Portuguese national anthem in his first game since having his contract terminated by the Red Devils. 
    CRISTIANO RONALDO made history as he helped his now ex-Manchester United colleague Bruno Fernandes sweep Portugal to a nervy victory. Ronaldo, a free agent after United terminated his contract fired a penalty opener as this World Cup clash came alive after the break. 8Ronaldo celebrates after hitting the opener after having a goal disallowedCredit: EPA 8Ronaldo scorched home Portugal's penalty breakthrough to b ecome the first player to score at five World CupsCredit: Reuters 8Joao Felix curves the goal of thre game to make it 3-1 to PortugalCredit: Getty And although Andre Ayew soon levelled, Fernandes and Joao Felix finished brilliantly as Portugal suddenly found glaring spaces on the counter-attack. Ronaldo could easily have bagged a first-half double. After seeing a fine strike ruled out for offside, he soared high for a header that, unusually, he failed to get any power on. Generally, though, Portugal foundered against Ghana's high line in a tight, tense, tame first period.

And in doing so he stopped a different Manchester United substitute making it all about him. 5Casemiro rose highest with a brilliant header in injury timeCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun 5The dramatic equaliser sparked wild scenes in the away endCredit: AP Just when Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag must have been wishing Scott McTominay had refused to come on as a sub, just like Ronaldo, the Brazilian’s late header snatched a deserved point for the visitors. The game was petering out into the goalless draw it probably deserved to be when the Scotland international wrestled fellow sub Armando Broja to the ground in the penalty area. Even before the age of VAR, it would have been silly. With cameras there to back up referee Stuart Attwell’s decision, it was unforgivable. Just as with Ronaldo’s incredible sulk at Old Trafford on Wednesday, the offence was there for all to see.

Gary Lineker said: "The gift from the footballing gods that just keeps on giving. Yet another extraordinary goal from the man and the goat that is Lionel Messi."

    MANCHESTER UNITED edged past Southampton at St Mary's thanks to Bruno Fernandes' second-half strike.

The Portuguese ace didn't make the cleanest connection on his strike, but managed to beat Gavin Bazunu regardless and put his side in front.

    MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be the shining light in an otherwise disappointing season for Manchester United. Make that 18 goals in the English Premier League for the Portugal superstar after he converted a penalty that he earned himself in a 3-0 victory over Brentford on Monday. Ronaldo also had a goal disallowed at Old Trafford for a narrow offside as United saved one of its best performances of the season for its final home game. Bruno Fernandes and Raphael Varane were the other scorers. The victory kept alive — at least mathematically — sixth-placed United’s chance of finishing in the top four and qualifying for next season’s Champions League. United, though, has only two games remaining and is five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and three behind Tottenham, with both rivals still having four to play. Ronaldo, who has netted in each of his last four games, is third on the league’s list of top scorers behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (22) and Tottenham’s Son Heung-min (19). ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated...

    Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 100th Premier League goal of his career as Manchester United looked to revive their fading top four hopes away at Arsenal. Goals from Nuno Tavares and Bukayo Saka had put Arsenal into a commanding 2-0 lead before Ronaldo's punched finish halved the deficit and ensured his side went in at half time with hope. Ronaldo, who becomes the 33rd player to reach the landmark, had missed United's trip to Liverpool in the week following the tragic loss of one of his newborn twins following his hat-trick against Norwich last weekend but appeared sharp here. The goal means Ronaldo has now scored at least 100 goals in four distinct entities - including 311 in La Liga, 140 in the Champions League, 115 for Portugal and now 100 goals in the Premier League for United.  As on Merseyside during the week, the opposition crowd touchingly applauded during the seventh minute in a show of respect to Ronaldo and his family.

    LONDON (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo scored on his return to the Manchester United team on Saturday after missing a game while grieving the death of his newborn son. The Portugal star raised his left arm and pointed to the sky in a subdued celebration of his 100th Premier League goal, coming in the first half at Arsenal after the home fans had risen to applaud United’s No. 7 when the clock hit the seventh minute in a show of solidarity. Ronaldo and partner Georgina Rodriguez announced on Monday that one of their newborn twins had died. He was left out of the squad that lost 4-0 at Liverpool on Tuesday. His goal at the Emirates Stadium came in the 34th minute to trim Arsenal’s lead to 2-1. It was his 16th in the Premier League this season since rejoining from Real Madrid, on top of the 84 goals in his first spell at United from 2003 to 2009. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    MADRID (AP) — Atlético Madrid kept old foe Cristiano Ronaldo in check but couldn’t hold on to its lead against Manchester United, conceding late in a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday. João Félix — once touted as the next Ronaldo — put the hosts ahead with a diving header seven minutes into the match, but substitute Anthony Elanga equalized in the 80th, five minutes after coming off the bench at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. Atlético was in control during most of the match and twice hit the crossbar, including with an 86th-minute shot by Antoine Griezmann. The return leg will be on March 15 in England. Ronaldo, who several times ended Atlético’s title hopes in the Champions League when he was with crosstown rival Real Madrid, struggled throughout the match and was visibly frustrated.

    MANCHESTER, England (AP) — This time, Manchester United held on to its lead. Cristiano Ronaldo ended his six-game goal drought by lashing in a 51st-minute goal to set United on its way to a 2-0 win over Brighton that moved the team into fourth place in the Premier League on Tuesday. Bruno Fernandes added a second goal in the seventh minute of stoppage time, with virtually the last kick of the game. United had failed to win any of its last three games despite taking the lead each time — twice in the league, against Burnley and Southampton, and in getting eliminated from the FA Cup by second-tier Middlesbrough. Helping United’s cause against Brighton at Old Trafford was visiting defender Lewis Dunk getting sent off three minutes after Ronaldo’s goal for a professional foul, bringing down Anthony Elanga as the winger was through on goal. Dunk was initially shown a yellow card but it turned to a red after a video review.

    MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo scored a fourth goal in his last five Premier League games to help Manchester United beat Burnley 3-1 on Thursday for its biggest win under recently hired manager Ralf Rangnick. Ronaldo grabbed the third of United’s first-half goals, tapping into an empty net in the 35th minute after Scott McTominay’s long-range shot was tipped onto the post by Burnley goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey. McTominay, with a curling shot from the edge of the area, and an own-goal by Ben Mee had set United on course for victory to bounce back from a disappointing display in a 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Monday. Aaron Lennon capped an entertaining first half by finding the net with a shot into the far corner to reduce the deficit in the 38th with his first goal since September 2018. By then, United had done enough to secure a third win in four league games under Rangnick and climb above Tottenham into sixth place.

    LEEDS UNITED star Raphinha had a night he will never forget as he scored his first goals for Brazil in a 4-1 rout of Uruguay. The winger, 24, was called up to the national team by manager Tite for the first time during the October international break. 2Raphinha celebrates his first Brazil goal with captain Neymar 2The winger described it as a night he will not forget after adding a second after half-time And after two substitute appearances Raphinha justified his selection with two goals against Uruguay. Neymar scored the opener after ten minutes before Raphinha put the game fully in Brazil's control. The Leeds ace then tapped in a rebound from a Neymar shot and celebrated with delight with his captain. And the pair linked up again with Raphinha pouncing on a through ball from Neymar to fire low past the goalkeeper. Luis Suarez reminded everyone of his talent with a well-taken free-kick before Gabriel Barbosa headed in for Brazil late on. But it was Raphinha's night and he shared his joy after the match.

    (CNN)Having become the all-time leading goalscorer in men's international football last month, Cristiano Ronaldo looks determined to put as much distance between himself and the chasing pack as possible. Ronaldo scored a hat-trick in Portugal's 5-0 thumping of Luxembourg in World Cup qualifying Group A last night to take his overall tally to 115 international goals, putting him six clear of former Iran striker Ali Daei and 35 ahead of Lionel Messi, who scored his 80th goal for Argentina this weekend.As he extended one record, Ronaldo claimed another -- becoming the first man to score 10 hat-tricks in international football. "I promised I'd always look for more and more and more!" Ronaldo wrote on Instagram after the game. "It's in my and our DNA, we'll never settle, we'll never give up and we'll always fight for everything we can achieve! Go Portugal!"His three-goal haul takes the 36-year-old's career total for club and country to an incredible 58 hat-tricks, and as has been the case for many of them, it was helped along the way by a penalty.Read MoreRonaldo opened the...
    Another hat trick for Cristiano Ronaldo, another win — and qualification for the World Cup — for Denmark. And yet more crowd trouble in a game between England and Hungary. There was a sense of familiarity to the World Cup qualifiers in Europe on Tuesday, not least in Faro where Ronaldo extended his men’s record tally of international goals to 115 by scoring the 58th hat trick of his career for club and country in Portugal’s 5-0 win over Luxembourg. Denmark became the second European nation to qualify for next year’s tournament in Qatar, after Germany on Monday, by securing an eighth straight win in group play by beating Austria 1-0. The decisive win — sealed by Joakim Maehle’s second-half goal — came at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen where star playmaker Christian Eriksen collapsed in June during a European Championship game. It is still unclear if Eriksen can resume his career to play at the World Cup in 13 months’ time. England is likely to be there, but was made to wait before booking its place after being...
    LIVERPOOL star Mo Salah thrilled football fans with a contender for goal of the season against Manchester City. Hailed by some as a strike worthy of Lionel Messi, Salah jinxed his way past City’s stubborn defence before lashing the ball home from a tight angle. 1Mo Salah scored a goal of the season contender in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Man CityCredit: Getty The 76th minute effort saw Liverpool go 2-1 ahead at Anfield, following strikes from Sadio Mane and Phil Foden. Indeed, many believed Salah’s effort was going to be enough for Jurgen Klopp’s men. But they were undone just five minutes later when Kevin De Bruyne equalised for the champions. And the title clash at Anfield finished 2-2, with both sides picking up a point. The thriller also saw a memorable moment from City’s Bernardo Silva, who skipped his way past three Liverpool players before leaving Virgil van Dijk on the floor with a mazy run of his own. However, it was Salah’s goal that fans continued to rave about long after the final whistle. Most read in Premier...
    (CNN)Cristiano Ronaldo scored a dramatic 95th minute goal to rescue Manchester United and beat Villarreal 2-1 on Wednesday in the Champions League. The Spanish side started brighter, creating a whole host of chances but found David de Gea in the United goal in inspired form. Spain striker Paco Alcácer eventually did open the deadlock for the visitors, tapping home from close range just after halftime. A superb volleyed equalizer from Brazilian left-back Alex Telles leveled the scores, before -- as he's done countless times before -- Ronaldo rifled home from inside the box to rescue Manchester United at Old Trafford. Having lost its opening group match of this season's competition at Young Boys in Switzerland, it was an even more important victory for the three-time Champions League winners. Read MoreAfter saving his side's blushes, Ronaldo admitted that the game was a "struggle." "We had a little bit of a struggle because we knew before the game that we must win the game," the 36-year-old told the media. "It was tough, the team was a little nervous, especially, well, first and...

View the original article to see embedded media.Time and time again, Cristiano Ronaldo has proved to be the difference maker for Manchester United—and he's only played five games so far this season.  On Wednesday against Villarreal, Ronaldo played the hero once again with a 95th-minute match-winner that sent Old Trafford into a frenzy. Tied at 1-1 in stoppage time, Ronaldo headed a cross into the box only to see the ball played back to him at a tight angle.  But the Portuguese star made no mistake to clinch the winner, finishing past Villarreal goalkeeper Gerónimo Rulli before ripping his shirt off in celebration as his teammates chased him to the corner flag. It was already a historic night for Ronaldo, who passed former Real Madrid teammate Iker Casillas as the all-time Champions League appearances leader...
    MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo scored a winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time as Manchester United came from behind to beat Villarreal 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday. Making his record 178th appearance in the competition, Ronaldo latched onto a loose ball in the area and slotted a finish under Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli before running to the fans and removing his jersey to reveal his muscular physique. It was Ronaldo’s fifth goal in five games since joining from Juventus for a second spell at Old Trafford and definitely his most important. Villarreal looked like handing United a second straight loss in Group F — after the Premier League team’s shocking 2-1 defeat at Swiss outsider Young Boys two weeks ago — by going in front in the 53rd through Paco Alcacer, who poked in a finish through the legs of United goalkeeper David De Gea following a cross by Arnaut Danjuma off the outside of his right boot. United had been outplayed by that point but equalized within seven minutes through Alex Telles, who was...
    LONDON (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo began the comeback as Manchester United won 2-1 at West Ham thanks to Mark Noble missing a penalty in stoppage time for the hosts straight after being brought off the bench on Sunday. The club captain was sent on by manager David Moyes to take the penalty after Luke Shaw handled in the area. The long-serving midfielder, who retires at the end of the season, had not missed a spotkick since December 2016, but he was denied a winner by United goalkeeper David De Gea. It was a dramatic end to a thrilling match that saw Jesse Lingard score the winner for United against the club he starred for while on loan last season. The England forward curled into the net in the 89th minute. Ronaldo had earlier scored his fourth goal in three matches since returning to United, cancelling out Said Benrahma’s deflected opener for the hosts. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

View the original article to see embedded media.Before his second Manchester United debut a week ago, Cristiano Ronaldo proclaimed to critics and fans alike that he did not return to Old Trafford "for a vacation." Yet after another goal Sunday, his fourth in three games this week, it seems Ronaldo has done nothing but cruise.  Trailing West Ham 1–0 in the 35th minute, Ronaldo made his presence felt with his third league goal of the season, following up his two-goal performance against Newcastle last weekend.  Ronaldo attacked a floating cross from Bruno Fernandes with the outside of his boot but saw his deft effort thwarted by West Ham keeper Łukasz Fabiański.

    ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI scored in his 18th straight game as sorry Barcelona’s post-Lionel Messi European era got off to a pitiful start.  The fallen giants had not lost their opening group game since Faustino Asprilla’s hat-trick for Newcastle in 1997.  And with ex-Toon flop Luuk de Jong running through treacle up front, the Catalans have more chance of re-signing Messi than landing their sixth Champions League title.  Thomas Muller’s first-half deflected shot was his 49th in the competition and made it seven goals in six games against the Spaniards.  And Lewandowski’s brace continued his remarkable run, notching his mind-boggling 29th goal in those 18 games.   It could, and should, have been more with Ronald Koeman’s side mauled from start to finish - failing to muster a single shot on target.  Starting their first Champions League campaign without Messi since 2004, Barca were out for revenge in their first meeting with Bayern Munich since the infamous 8-2 mauling 13 months ago.   But the Bavarian beasts soon took charge of an alarmingly one-sided clash with Leroy Sane denied by a canny combination of...
    BERN, Switzerland (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo’s early goal could not save Manchester United from another Champions League loss in Switzerland, 2-1 on Tuesday against a sharp and robust Young Boys team. Jordan Siebatcheu, the United States forward on as a substitute, struck in the fifth and last minute of stoppage time when the ball broke into space behind the United defense. Ronaldo’s record-extending 135th Champions League goal in the 13th minute was the first of his — and United’s — only two shots of the game. He was substituted in the 72nd. It was created by Bruno Fernandes’ clever pass with the outside of his right foot into the path of Ronaldo for a low shot that squirmed under goalkeeper David von Ballmoos. Reduced to 10 men in the 35th minute after a red-card foul by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the Premier League co-leader struggled to create any more scoring chances against the unheralded Swiss champion. United was already under regular pressure before Wan-Bissaka’s rash challenge on Christopher Martins deep in the Young Boys half. Young Boys deservedly leveled in the 66th...

    TWO Newcastle players asked for Cristiano Ronaldo's shirt after their team's 4-1 defeat to Manchester United, according to rumours. Captain Jamaal Lascelles and Joelinton spoke to the returning icon after the game and some furious Toon fans believe they asked for his jersey. 3Some believe Lascelles asked for Ronaldo's shirt after the gameCredit: Getty 3Joelinton also approached Ronaldo 3And CR7 pointed at someone else, suggesting the shirt had already been taken Adam Crafton of The Athletic tweeted that he thought he saw 'more than one' Newcastle player ask Ronaldo for his jersey after the game. The suspicion was reaffirmed by Rory Smith of the New York Times, who thought Lascelles asked before 'someone else' tried to nab it off the skipper. Video footage suggests that player is Joelinton, with Ronaldo appearing to point at another player and telling him the shirt's already been taken. There's every chance the players were just congratulating the Man Utd star after his stunning second Prem debut, scoring a brace against Newcastle.
