Ronaldo has finally silenced his critics for good by becoming the top World Cup goal scorer of all time.

A trademark sidestep strike from the left flank by the number 9 against Ghana in the 5th minute saw him surpass 'German bomber' - Gerd Muller's record of 14 goals.

Ronaldo had earlier scored two goals in Brazil's 4-1 win over Japan. After the preliminary encounter the superstar had said, "I have been very patient. You have to keep working and not lose heart."

His form had previously come under heavy weather from critics the world over who commented that he had become overweight.

With the world record etched in his name, the 'Phenomenon' would certainly dispel all notion that his days in international football are numbered.
