Brazil vs Ghana

Ronaldo dribbles past Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingston to score the opening goal of the match and break Gerd Muller's record as the highest scorer at World Cup.

Brazil beat Ghana in the round of 16 match in Dortmund on Tuesday to continue their ominous rise at the tournament.

Ronaldo came into the match even with Gerd Mueller of Germany, with 14 goals. He had scored twice in Brazil's 4-1 win over Japan last week, surpassing Pele as Brazil's career leading scorer in the competition. Today's goal was his 67th in 103 matches with Brazil. Pele scored 95 goals in 114 matches.
