Ronaldo targeting titles

27 Jun 2006 - 19:31:39

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."
