The striker scored with a header in the 57th minute on Thursday, despite Ghana losing in the end by two goals to one to take his total record to six World Cup goals, overtaking the record of five set by Cameroon’s Roger Milla.

Ghana, who earlier sent home midfielders Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng for disciplinary reasons, needed to beat Portugal but lost following a late winner from Cristiano Ronaldo.
