Ronaldo targeting titles

Ronaldo insists Brazil retaining the World Cup is more important to him than personal glory.
The Real Madrid striker netted his 15th World Cup finals goal in Tuesday's 3-0 second round win against Ghana to become the tournament's all-time leading scorer ahead of Gerd Muller.
"It's a great satisfaction to make this record, but let's not forget our main objective is to reach the final," said Ronaldo.
"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.
"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.
"It's tough to play against such teams as Ghana - we really had to sweat for it. We made a big effort and 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!"
Ghana coach Ratomir Dujkovic was understandably disappointed to have missed out on a quarter-final meeting with either Spain or France, but was delighted with his team's battling display.
"They faced a great team, the world champions, who are the best in the competition," said Dujkovic.
"It is not a shame to lose to Brazil. I said before that Brazil were favoured to be champions, the world champions."
