After drawing Spain in the opener, the Portuguese national team received another goal from Cristiano Ronaldo, this time to secure all three points. It wasn't the greatest showing from the Portuguese, as Morocco controlled possession and created more chances, but the finishing was abysmal. In all, Morocco had 16 shots -- six more than Portugal -- but just four went on frame.
Cristiano Ronaldo took just four minutes to score the goal that made him the top-scoring European in international football as Portugal beat Morocco in Moscow to dump Herve Renard's men out of the World Cup. One the tournament's star performers so far picked up where he left off after his hat-trick against Spain in Portugal's opening Group B draw, heading Fernando Santos' men into an early lead with a goal that moved him to 85 international goals - one ahead of the legendary Ferenc Puskas in the all-time standings. Morocco head coach Renard came into the game having seen his players denied a point after dominating much of their opening encounter against Iran and they were largely the better side here too, keeping Portugal on the back foot and quelling the threat of Ronaldo for long periods. Renard was involved in discussions with officials over two rejected first-half penalty claims but his side created enough chances to score from open play had they been more accurate in front of goal. Portugal once again relied upon Ronaldo to produce their best moments and the weaknesses evident throughout the rest of Santos' team belie their pre-tournament billing as one of the favourites. Morocco will have the chance to restore some pride by claiming a result from their final Group B game against Spain and will then head home disappointed not to have had more to show for two good displays in Russia , while Portugal took a huge step towards the last Victory for POR thanks to another goal from Cristiano!

Cristiano Ronaldo proved the difference for Portugal as his early header condemned Morocco to a defeat in Group B at the World Cup. After his hat-trick against Spain, Ronaldo was yet again in headline-grabbing mood and headed Portugal into a fourth-minute lead. His 85th goal for his country means he's now scored more international goals than any other European player in history and puts Portugal in a strong position to qualify for the last 16 with four points from their first two games. However, they were punished by a lapse in defence by Ronaldo with just four minutes on the clock. A recycled corner was pumped back into the danger zone which allowed the Real Madrid man to get a run on Manuel Da Costa and thump his fourth goal of the tournament home. Benatia planted a header straight at Patricio from eight yards on 12 minutes while Nordin Amrabat had a penalty appeal turned down when Raphael Guerreiro hauled him down.

They do call Portugal a one-man team and when that one man is Cristiano Ronaldo, a footballer so famous that even the Russians would not need to see his passport, you can understand why the World Cup finals has fallen under his spell. W ithout Ronaldo, there would be none of the four goals registered by Portugal in this tournament including the winner against Morocco, which has taken his overall tally to 85, the most scored in international football by a European footballer. Yet Portugal are a bit more than that. From Morocco, the first team eliminated from Russia , there was everything but a goal. Their white-shirted, lantern-jawed French coach Herve Renard, who watches from the touchline like a Monaco divorcee scrutinising the dance-floor, listed all the things he was proud of afterwards and lamented the performance of the American referee.
Paul Doyle. Wed 20 Jun Updated at 3. Portugal survive! His early goal was the difference between the two teams. Morocco are eliminated from the World Cup despite a gallant display. They will be very, very frustrated.
