World Cup Day 19 - Ronaldo breaks scoring record

In todays 3-0 victory over Ghana, Ronaldo broke the World Cup scoring when he opened the scoring for the Brazilians, moving past Gerd Muller with the 15th strike of his tournament career.

From the snippets of this game I caught during the first-half it looked like Ghana were a little unfortunate to go in behind, let alone 2-0 down, with Adriano's strike just before the break suspiciously offside and the possession and chances in favour of the African side.

The 909 commentary I had on driving home from work were not enthralled by the second half with Brazil seemingly content to sit on the lead and Ghana unable to offer anything to get back in the game, and late on the crowd were registering their displeasure at the manner in which the game was heading before Ze Roberto added a very late third.

Although into the last eight, Brazil fall into the same category as England in being a side that has hardly shown the form and ability that is expected from the players in the line-up, and they will have a tricky quarter-final tie meeting either France or Spain who kick-off later this evening. blogging live throughout.
