GETTYCristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Portugal against Morocco at the World Cup

Morocco officially is eliminated from World Cup 2018 contention with its second loss in as many games.

Ronaldo's goal was his 85th strike for his country and saw him become Europe's all-time leading global goal scorer after moving past Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas (84). She was seen showing off what looks just like a stunning diamond engagement ring.

In Group B, Portugal chalked up their first win of the tournament, beating Morocco 1-0, while Spain earned the third 1-0 victory of the day over Iran. He is constantly evolving, contradictorily to the other players.

The 33-year-old Real Madrid forward scored in the fourth minute against Morocco to give Portugal the early lead.

Three years ago, he was named the best Portuguese player of all time by his country's professional soccer federation.

Spain's final match of group play will be against Morocco on Monday. Unlike Ronaldo, Puskas never won a major worldwide trophy, whereas the former Manchester United ace led his team to victory in the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.

"It was inexplicable. If in a match against players like they have, if you don't have the ball, they will wear you down and you get into trouble", he added.

That is the message from Patrice Evra, who played alongside the Portugal national team captain for three and a half seasons at Premier League club Manchester United. "It means that you are satisfied", he said. "He's absolutely exceptional. Perhaps that word isn't even strong enough".

"We knew if we lost we could be out", Ronaldo said.

"There was a lot of anxiety because it´s a World Cup, our team is a strong team but we have to grow", Santos said. They'd better hope so if they want to challenge for the Cup. Because, like in the first game, we had plenty of chances. Puskas, who also spent most of his career with Real Madrid, needed only 89 games to reach the 84-goal mark, while Ronaldo already has 151 caps.
