23:45 (IST)24 NOV 2022

That's it for this one. Brazil v Serbia is the last game of the day. Join us there. Bye for now.

23:45 (IST)24 NOV 2022

23:40 (IST)24 NOV 2022

23:36 (IST)24 NOV 2022

A very nervy moment for all Portugal fans at the end as Diogo Costa the goalkeeper without realising Inaki Williams behind him rolls the ball in front of him, Williams sneaks in behind and then as he prepares to shoot, he slips and Costa gets away. That would have really broken Portugal hearts had that gone in.

23:30 (IST)24 NOV 2022

FULL-TIME! Portugal 3 Ghana 2. What a game that came alive in the second half after a goalless first half. 5 goals in the second half and Portugal win by the odd goal. Ghana came hard in the last 10 minutes but Portugal hung on.

23:21 (IST)24 NOV 2022

9 minutes of added time as well.

23:19 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Osman Bukari in the 88th minute! Portugal 3 Ghana 2. A long ball over the top and the left-back misjudged the flight of the ball and the cross is sent in where Bukari is unmarked from 5 yards, he heads home giving Costa no chance. Game back on? And Bukari does the "Siuuu" Ronaldo celebration as well.

23:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Rafael Leao in the 80th minute! Portugal 3 Ghana 1. Again Ghana lose the ball in midfield and Fernandes slips in the substitute Leao who is just onside and finishes with Thierry Henry-like precision - opening his body and curling it into the far corner. Game over surely!

23:09 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Joao Felix in the 78th minute! Portugal 2 Ghana 1. Lovely finish from the youngster as he gets in behind the last defender and with the goalkeeper onrushing he dinks it over him and into the bottom-left corner.

23:03 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Andre Ayew in the 73rd minute! Portugal 1 Ghana 1. Mohammed Kudus gets in on the blindside of the left-back and crosses it from the byline where he finds Andre Ayew who has a tap-in. Game on here and that's sent Ghanian supporters into a frenzy.

23:01 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Mohammed Kudus with a scorcher of a strike that stings the palms of Diogo Costa from distance. That was hit with ferocious power.

22:56 (IST)24 NOV 2022

STAT: Ronaldo becomes the first player to score at five World Cups.

22:54 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Cristiano Ronaldo in the 65th minute! Portugal 1 Ghana 0. The keeper guesses the right way to his right but the pace and power of Ronaldo's penalty beats him as it fizzes over his left-hand. Ronaldo does his trademark "Siuuu" celebration.

22:51 (IST)24 NOV 2022

PENALTY to PORTUGAL! Cristiano Ronaldo is brought down inside the box in a 50-50 challenge and the referee points to the spot. The VAR does not get involved and the penalty stays.

22:47 (IST)24 NOV 2022

A bit of afters between Alidu Seidu and Sequeira Joao Felix after the Ghanian brings down the youngster. Felix gets up and meets his head with Seidu's. The referee lets off both with a warning. A bit more contact from both and they might have been sent off.

22:46 (IST)24 NOV 2022

William Carvalho on for Otavio as Portugal make a substitution. Otavia was down injured as well.

22:44 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Mohammed Kudus with a great run after turning past a Portugal defender in midfield, lung-busting sprint but he fires the shot wide of the left-hand post of Costa.

22:38 (IST)24 NOV 2022

YELLOW CARD for Andre Ayew. A clumsy challenge on Otavia and Ayew becomes the second Ghanain to go into the book.

22:34 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Second half begins.

22:18 (IST)24 NOV 2022

HALF-TIME! Portugal 0 Ghana 0. Ronaldo had a couple of chances but apart from that it has been Portugal dominating possession and Ghana looking to hit on the break.

22:16 (IST)24 NOV 2022

2 minutes of added time.

22:16 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Good spell of possession as Monteiro Otavio skies it over the crossbar after being fed on the right.

22:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

A couple of corners for Ghana but Fernandes and Ronaldo clear the danger.

22:03 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Ronaldo has the ball in the net after spinning past the last defender but he is deemed to have pushed him to the ground as the referee waves away any protests.

22:00 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Bruno Fernandes feeds Cavaco Joao Cancelo on the right who overhits the cross but Bernardo Silva finds Sequeira Joao Felix in the middle. The youngster skies a shot well over the crossbar. Was leaning back when he hit it.

21:49 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Portugal are controlling possession but Ghana look to hit them on the break with pace.

21:44 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Now Ronaldo jumps high from a corner and gets his head but glances it wide. Another half a chance for Portugal.

21:42 (IST)24 NOV 2022

As soon as I write that, a heavy touch sees the ball pinged to Cristiano Ronaldo but a heavy first touch and Lawrence Ati-Zigi is out there to smother the shot as it drifts wide. If not for the first touch, Ronaldo would've been expecting to score there.

21:41 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Portugal are bossing possession inside the first 10 minutes but no real chances so far.

21:31 (IST)24 NOV 2022


21:29 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Cristiano Ronaldo pouts as he walks out for the anthems and has a big smile and a roar after finishing the anthem. We are now minutes away from kick-off.

21:25 (IST)24 NOV 2022

We are set for the national anthems.

21:24 (IST)24 NOV 2022

The players are in the tunnel.

20:42 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Portugal XI: Diogo Costa; Cancelo, Danilo, Rúben Dias, Guerreiro; Neves; Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Otávio, João Félix; Ronaldo.

Ghana XI: Ati Zigi; Seidu, Djiku, Salisu, Amartey, Rahman; Partey, Abdul Samed; Kudus, Iñaki Williams, André Ayew.

20:19 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Not long to go for the line-ups to be officially announced. It will be interesting to see how both teams set themselves up ahead of this hugely-anticipated clash. Stay tuned!

19:58 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Ghana have caused some serious upsets in the history of the FIFA World Cup. Everybody remembers their dream run to the quarter-finals back in 2010. 

Plenty of changes have happened to the side since then, but they will have more than just hope in their arsenal, especially after watching Saudi Arabia and Japan over the last few days. 

19:35 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Cristiano Ronaldo is currently without a club after mutually parting ways with Manchester United. The world wouldn't have imagined anything like this a few months ago and the Portuguese superstar will now be desperate to prove a point at the World Cup.

This could also be the perfect platform for Ronaldo to raise his stock in front of potential buyers after the forgettable last few months at Old Trafford. Will he rise to the occasion yet again?

19:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

EVENING FOLKS! - We're buzzing. FIFA World Cup fever has truly overshadowed everything else. And now, one of world football's biggest protagonists enters the fray. 

Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal begin their World Cup dream against the 'Black Stars' of Ghana. This looks like a promising fixture and now we know for sure that no team in this competition can be taken lightly!
