Ghana winger Osman Bukari copied Cristiano Ronaldo's trademark celebration after netting for the Black Stars in their 3-2 defeat to Portugal on Thursday.

Bukari scored in the 89th minute to give Ghana a lifeline and the African side came close to levelling in a chaotic period of added time.

Portugal took the lead through Cristiano Ronaldo after 65 minutes as the five-time Ballon d'Or winner became the first man in history to score at five different World Cups.

Andre Ayew levelled eight minutes later, but Portugal looked to be cruising to an easy win after two strikes in quick succession from Joao Felix and Rafael Leao.

Bukari's late goal made it a nervy finale for Portugal, though, and the Red Star Belgrade midfielder copied Cristiano's trademark celebration at Stadium 974 in Doha.

Ronaldo did not look amused on the bench as he waved his fist in frustration and the former Manchester United forward was then left holding his head in exasperation as Ghana almost grabbed a dramatic equaliser in added time, when an effort was cleared off the line.

After Uruguay and South Korea drew 0-0 earlier on Thursday, Portugal's win leaves them in pole position in Group H.
