Ronaldo Memes Win the Internet After Portugal Star Helps USA at World Cup

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalJune 26, 2014

Cristiano Ronaldo was an American hero on Wednesday, with his World Cup goal for Portugal against Ghana effectively ending the possibility that Ghana might finish above the USA and send them home.

Portugal beat Ghana 2-1, meaning a 1-0 loss for the USA against Germany didn't matter. Both Germany and the USA went through to the last 16.

Predictably, the memes flowed.

All hail Ronaldo.
