Cristiano Ronaldo powered-home a fourth-minute header to give Portugal a 1-0 World Cup victory over Morocco that took them top of Group B and meant the unlucky North African side become the first to be eliminated from the tournament.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s fourth goal of Russia 2018, following his hat-trick in the 3-3 draw with Spain took the European champions to four points on Wednesday.

Iran have three points and Spain one ahead of their meeting later on Wednesday.

Morocco, who had a real go at the Luzhniki Stadium but failed to convert their chances, are pointless having also lost 1-0 to Iran and cannot progress to the second round.

Despite their battling display, Morocco will rue the unforgivable defending that made all their subsequent good work irrelevant.

They qualified for the World Cup without conceding a goal in six matches yet somehow opted against marking the most dangerous attacker at the tournament in the six yard box when Joao Moutinho swung in a cross from a short corner and Ronaldo duly buried the header.

It was his 85th international goal taking him beyond Hungarian Ferenc Puskas European record, with only Iran’s Ali Daei ahead of him on 109.
