Portugal thrashed Switzerland 6-1 at the 2022 World Cup and will play Morocco in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
The big pre-match news was that Portugal had dropped Cristiano Ronaldo. But they did not miss him, with his replacement, Goncalo Ramos, scoring a hat-trick.
Pepe, Raphael Guerreiro and Rafael Leao also got on the scoresheet, with Manuel Akanji pulling one back for the desperately disappointing Swiss.

Ronaldo may get used to the bench
That was a statement performance by Portugal. Switzerland are no mugs, and for all their problems with shapes and formations, Santos’s team have just ripped them apart. They have shown their true potential tonight, and have to be considered serious contenders.
It leaves one question, how on earth does Ronaldo get back into the team?!
