Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo (second from left, in white) scored with a powerful header in the fourth minute at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow to earn his team a 1-0 win over fellow Group B rival Morocco. It was his fourth goal at the Russia World Cup, and leaves Portugal in strong position to advance to the round of 16. For the luckless Moroccans, it was their second 1-0 defeat, and they become the first team to be eliminated from the World Cup.
