The Portuguese team will meet Morocco, who knocked out Spain, in the quarter-finals.

Portugal are the latest to reach the last eight at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar after an emphatic 6-1 win over Switzerland on Tuesday night.

Federal captain Fernando Santos sent his team to the field without Cristiano Ronaldo, replacing his star player with Goncalo Ramos, who scored a hat-trick with a sensational game. The Benfica striker took the lead with a bomb goal in the 17th minute, then scored his team’s third and fifth goals in the second half. Alongside him, Pepe, Raphael Guerreiro and Rafael Leao scored. The former became the second oldest goalscorer in the history of the World Cup at the age of 39 years and 283 days.

After the first goal conceded, the Swiss team played a subordinate role throughout the match, in which Manuel Akanji scored his honor.

On Saturday, the Portuguese team will face the Moroccan national team, which knocked out Spain, in the quarter-finals.
