Cristiano Ronaldo is NOT the first player to score in 5 World Cups, so who is the first?

There are few players in the world who show longevity in their careers and that too at the highest level. Only a handful of the footballers have been able to participate in 5 World Cups, meaning they were at the top of their game for at least 16 long years.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mexico’s Andres Guardado, and ‘Memo’ Ochoa are playing their fifth World Cup this year, putting them among icons such as Antonio Carbajal, Gianluigi Buffon, Rafa Marquez and Lothar Matthaus. 

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty in their first match of this World Cup against Ghana. After scoring from the penalty spot, he became the first-ever male player to score in five consecutive World Cups. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner extended his international goalscoring tally to 118, after striking a powerful shot to beat the keeper.

However, you would be surprised to know that Cristiano Ronaldo is not the first player to score in 5 World Cups. He is the first-ever male player to achieve this feat. So who is the first player to accomplish this?

Brazil’s Marta and Canada’s Christine Sinclair is the first player to score in 5 World Cups. Both of them scored in the same World Cups – 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019.
