POR vs GHA Live, FIFA World Cup: FULL TIME! Portugal wins 3-2
Wow Portugal goalkeeper Diogo Costa almost committed what could have ended up being the blunder of the tournament to almost lose the lead in the last 10 seconds of the game. He rolled the ball forward after catching it at the end of a hopeful cross into the penalty area. Inaki Williams had jumped forward to claim it before running past Costa and it appears the latter was unaware of the Bilbao striker’s presence. He rolls the ball forward to take a leisurely kick, but the latter scrambles after it after Williams charged at it and nearly spun it into the back of the net. A chaotic end to the game after a completely flat first half. That’s football for you. In the end, Portugal claim all three points. Wasn’t that fun? Well, there could be more fun an hour later when the Brazilians finally play their first match. Join us there as we sign off from here. Tatas!!

Portugal vs Ghana Live Score: GOAL! Now Ghana makes 3-2!
Portugal just made a triple substitution and one of the players they eliminated was Ronaldo. Cross comes from the left and Pereira seems to be asleep when Bukari comes in to turn the ball into goal. Bukaro goes ahead and celebrates Ronaldo to boot.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Score: GOAL! Leao makes it 3-1!
80 minutes: Wow, he’s only been on the field for a few seconds and he’s found the back of the net with a clean finish. Portugal may have just put the game to bed now. Bruno Fernandes with a perfectly weighted through ball to the left, Leao opens his body and caresses it past the goalkeeper at the thick post.

POR vs GHA Live, FIFA World Cup: PENALTY FOR PORTUGAL!
62 minutes: Ronaldo comes together with Salisu and goes down, referee points directly to the spot. I wonder if the VAR will look into that. It looks like the decision has been confirmed, Cristiano Ronaldo is over the ball. Now then…
Nov 24, 2022 10:46 PM IST
FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Score: All heating up
57 minutes: An argument between Felix and Seidu. Seidu moves his head towards Felix’s, makes contact and the latter falls down like a sack of bricks. Seidu then pulls him back up and the Portuguese players are not happy about it. The referee talks to Seidu and that’s the end for now. Seidu is on a yellow card, remember. Some much needed spice in this match.

No changes at halftime for either side. Lots of gestures between the Portuguese attackers though, wonder if anything has changed in the plans. We’ll find out soon enough, Ghana kicks off the second half.

Portugal vs Ghana Live Score: HALF TIME! Portugal 0-0Ghana
Portugal made almost all the attacks, but managed only two shots on target. 62 percent of possession for them. Ghana failed to shoot at all. All in all, a rather disappointing first half actually.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Score: Corner for Ghana!
37th minute: Would you believe it, Ghana really has an attack to do! The corner kick of course comes to naught, calculated by Ronaldo. Who says he doesn’t defend?

Portugal vs Ghana Live Score: GOAL REJECTED FOR RONALDO!
31 minutes: Ronaldo turns from Alexander Djiku to get a pass from Felix and finishes nicely to find the back of the net, but the referee has blown the whistle for a foul. It is against Ronaldo for the contact he made with Djiku while turning away from him. It’s a loose one and Ronaldo looks furious, as you’d expect him to.

POR vs GHA Live, FIFA World Cup: 28 minutes passed
Good work from Ronaldo and Fernandes on the right allows Guerrero to send in a cross which is headed clear by Amartey. Goalkeepers have had little to nothing to do so far.
24 Nov. 2022 21:53 IST
FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Score: 20 minutes up, Portugal 0-0 Ghana
The Ghanaian fans have taken the party to the stands, but none of the teams have done anything of the sort in the middle. Ghana has patiently given Portugal all the property they want, Portugal has done practically nothing with it. This game could use some energy.

Portugal vs Ghana Live score: Even bigger miss now from Ronaldo
13th minute: Cross from the left, Ronaldo pulls out one of his monster jumps and it looks like this is going to be a clear goal. Only that it isn’t, he heads the wrong side of the crossbar with half the goal unguarded in front of him. If you forgot all the drama of THAT interview, you would remember that Ronaldo has been in pretty rotten form at Manchester United this season and it was precisely these kinds of opportunities that he missed.
24 Nov. 2022 21:40 IST
POR vs GHA Live, FIFA World Cup: BIG CHANCE FOR RONALDO!
10th minute: Fantastic job by Ghanaian goalkeeper Lawrence Ati-Zigi to thwart the Portugal captain. Ghana carelessly lose the ball just before their final third, Fernandes passes the ball forward to a completely shot-free Ronaldo. However, he didn’t get time for a proper first tap as the keeper ran forward and cleared the threat.

POR vs GHA Live, FIFA World Cup: what to expect from Ghana
Even the most ardent fans would say this is a tough question to answer. Ghana was downright sad in the African Cup of Nations in January of this year. That led to head coach Milovan Rajevac being dismissed, but Otto Addo has since guided them to World Cup qualification by beating Nigeria in a play-off final.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Score: The Ronaldo Soap
Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, in which Morgan urged the Portugal captain to make a controversial statement in case he forgot one during a reply, was dropped just before the national teams gathered for the trip to Qatar. It all ended this week when Ronaldo parted ways with Manchester United and so he is playing this for the first time in his career

Portugal vs Ghana Live Score: The Williams Brothers
If you had watched the match between Spain and Costa Rica you would remember Nico Williams, the Athletic Bilbao winger who had come on as a second-half substitute. His older brother, Inaki Williams, plays for the same club, but not for the same national team. The brothers were born to Ghanaian parents and Inaki even received a call-up to the Spanish national team, although it was only a friendly match. He was eventually allowed to play for Ghana, which he chose just before the 2022 World Cup.

Portugal vs Ghana Live Score: Hello and Welcome!
Rarely has a team’s build-up to a tournament as big as the World Cup been dominated by the club situation of one of their players, but that was the case for Portugal. But as their players have said, they know they have a mega star in their midst in Cristiano Ronaldo and always knew they should have talked about him even if his situation was calm and serene during this World Cup. So let’s talk about the brass tacks this could be the last time we see Ronaldo in this tournament although everyone would have said the same thing in 2018 and so this could also be the last chance for him to take the world title . Cup, that one missing piece in his ridiculously shiny trophy case.
