FIFA gave in on Friday to a furious Ronaldo upset that his goal against hapless Costa Rica on Thursday had been credited to Luis Marin as an own goal.
Ronaldo protested to FIFA officials in the changing room after the match and on Friday FIFA officials reviewed a tape of the match and agreed to give the Brazilian superstar credit.
The decision takes Ronaldo's goal tally in the tournament to four in three matches. Germany's Miroslav Klose is the current top scorer with five.
"I have no doubt that I scored the first goal," said Ronaldo.
"The norm is that when a striker kicks a ball, even if it comes off a defender, it is given to the striker because the striker has the intention to score."
Well, now I´ve seen everything. You can score by whining. You are a disgrace Ronaldo!! You make me puke, you t**!! All these antics by the Brazilians are such a disgrace - as they also come as surprise to me. I thought Brazilians were fair play people, I´m proved wrong.
They are greedy, foul play, cheating c**s. All of them.
