Cristiano Ronaldo tells story behind new goatee as Portugal beat Morocco

Cristiano Ronaldo goal record

GETTYCristiano Ronaldo has become the top scoring European in international football

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).

Several fans took to Twitter today after Ronaldo turned up to the Portugal-Morocco game with his new beard, and claimed there was more to it than just facial hair.

After two very different opening World Cup matches, the FC guys talk about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's differing roles for their national teams.

The Portugal forward celebrated his goal with a trademark run and soaring leap toward the corner flag at Luzhniki Stadium. Spain has one Fair Play point, a yellow card received by Sergio Busquets.

But after moving level with Puskas with his hat-trick in Portugal's Group B opener against Spain, Ronaldo broke the record in the fourth minute against Morocco in Moscow.

The 33-year-old opened the scoring for Portugal as he cleverly found some space inside the box and powered home a header.

Apart from Ronaldo, with his astonishing tally of 85 goals from 152 internationals, there is plenty more natural talent in the squad which has so far failed to manifest itself.

Diego Costa scored a lucky goal in the 54th minute, getting a favourable bounce off a defender's leg.

Spain's goal forced the Iranians to be more adventurous and again, they can be proud of their attempts to find an equaliser as they tested the central-defensive pairing of Sergio Ramos and Gerard Piqué on a regular basis.

Socceroos coach Bert van Marwijk isn't ruling out changes to face a World Cup opponent he rates as a better team unit than France.

Iran will likely need to beat Portugal in their final group stage match to move on to the Round of 16.
