Ronaldo scored in Portugal’s opening win over Ghana – days after he was sacked by Manchester United following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.

With the match in just the third minute, left-back Nuno Mendes launched a long throw towards Ronaldo in the box.

There wasn’t much on for the forward as it fell to him, but he somehow managed to connect perfectly with the ball using his shoulder.
