Ronaldo vows to carry on scoring
Ronaldo celebrates breaking the record
Ronaldo has scored 62 goals for Brazil
Brazil striker Ronaldo said he was planning to shoot Brazil to World Cup glory after breaking Gerd Muller's tournament goalscoring record.

Ronaldo took his tally to 15 with his goal against Ghana in a 3-0 win that put Brazil in the last eight.

He said: "I'm very happy with the result and with breaking the record.

"The record had stood for seven World Cups so I am naturally very pleased to beat it. I'll now just have to keep on scoring to fire us to another title."

Ronaldo, who has been criticised for being overweight and sluggish, now has three goals for this tournament, one behind Germany's Miroslav Klose in the race for the Golden Shoe.

"I'm out to show what I can still do and I'm sure there's going to be a big party in Brazil for our supporters," the Real Madrid striker said.

"It's tough to play against such teams as Ghana - we really had to sweat for it. We made a big effort - every Brazilian player gave his all and we will have to do the same in the next game.

"We win as a team. I get goals and on we go. Now I want more and more and more!"

Ronaldo added: "It's a great satisfaction to make this record, but let's not forget our main objective is to reach the final. The players are very confident and our team is meeting our goals.

"I sensed I had to trick the goalie somehow. I figured it would complicate things if I kept the ball too long so I decided to do that dribble around the Ghana goalkeeper.

"I hope they continue falling for my tricks up to the final."
