Did American World Cup Referee Ask Cristiano Ronaldo For His Jersey?

Cristiano Ronaldo becomes Europe's all-time leading scorer in global football as he registers in Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco at the 2018 World Cup.

Ronaldo, with his fourth goal of the tournament, is now the most prolific European goal scorer at worldwide level.

Portugal beat Morocco 1-0 in the second match of their World Cup campaign on Wednesday, a result which should be enough to see them through to the round of 16 with one group match left to play, against Iran.

Portuguese defender, Pepe has been speaking ahead of the game and he is full of praise for his Cristiano Ronaldo.

Where is FIFA World Cup 2018 Portugal vs Morocco match being played? "We will try to come first in the group".

One more worldwide goal for the 33-year-old will see him become the highest goalscorer of all time for European nations, and considering the form he is in, this is more than just a possibility.

Andre Silva will relish playing with "the best in the world" Cristiano Ronaldo if he is picked to start alongside the Real Madrid star for Portugal against Morocco at the World Cup.

"He's the best. And like I said, for us we are very proud to be counting on him every game, to have him on the pitch and to be supporting [him] to be able to score".

Ronaldo has struck 23 times in his past 18 matches for his country, with 15 of those goals coming in World Cup qualification. "We knew Morocco would be giving their all".

Too many of their shots flew wide, however, and the one time the North Africans did find the target with an effort of note, new Wolves keeper Rui Patricio produced a brilliant one-handed diving save to keep out Younes Belhanda's header.

The game itself should be straightforward for Uruguay, who won their Group A opener 1-0 against an Egypt team without Mohamed Salah as they face a Saudi Arabia outfit hammered 5-0 by hosts Russian Federation in the tournament curtain-raiser.

"We have to run a lot and we have to work hard because this will not be an easy game".
