Morocco are the first side to exit the 2018 FIFA World Cup after losing 0-1 to Portugal in their second Group B encounter.

With just four minutes played, the 33-year-old went stooping through the six-yard box to head home Bernardo Silva's corner...

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored more worldwide goals than any other European player in the history of football (85 goals for Portugal).

Cristiano Ronaldo leaps high in the air after scoring his 85th goal for Portugal, the second-most in global football.

Ronaldo's four goals tops the individual scoring chart at the World Cup.

Osorio survived calls for his head after his team were thrashed 7-0 by Chile at the Copa America Centenario two years ago. The goal decided the match - a match Germany didn't expect to lose. "The game was close and I just wanted to do my job".

A crude lunge from Benatia on Ronaldo left the Portugal skipper writhing around in pain, while Morocco felt aggrieved when Nordin Amrabat was hauled down by Guerreiro as he muscled his way into the area.

"Like all the players at the World Cup, he wants to play every game", Renard said.

Morocco lost 1-0 for the second straight Group B match and is out of contention for a spot in the next round.

Portugal, who drew 3-3 in their opener against Spain, next play Iran on Monday.

Ronaldo, however, will be a hard player to tame following his heroics against the Spaniards last week, when he gave an individual performance that is already being considered as one of the best in World Cup history.

Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations, as well as the graphic content of the violent attack, mean that we can not show you the footage but Pepe will do well to recover in time for their final group game against Iran on Monday.

"He's the best in the world and I hope in Qatar he will score again in another World Cup".

"I'm not disappointed about the performance, I'm happy with it and very proud of my players", emotional Morocco coach Herve Renard told reporters.

The story, however, was mostly the same has it hand been in the first half, with the African side controlling the game, getting into some good positions and then failing to breakdown Portugal's defense in the final third.
