South Korea

The veteran’s reaction to being substituted against South Korea displeased Santos and Benfica youngster Ramos was given the chance to impress at centre-forward, something he did emphatically when dispatching Joao Felix’s 17th-minute pass.

Pepe then became the second-oldest goalscorer in World Cup history after Cameroon great Roger Milla when he converted Bruno Fernandes’ 33rd-minute corner.

Diogo Dalot

Switzerland’s misery continued early in the second half when Ramos coolly converted Diogo Dalot’s low cross at the near post and Raphael Guerriero made it 4-0 before Manuel Akanji pulled one back for Murat Yakin‘s beleaguered side.

But the evening belong to Ramos, who dinked home to complete a sensation treble on his first international start.

Portugal vs Switzerland live updates, highlights from 2022 World Cup

90th+2 minuteGOOOAAALLLL!!!!! Rafael Leao

Bernardo Silva

Six of the best for Portugal. Bernardo Silva slips a pass to Leao, who cuts in from the left and curls a finish across Sommer, who weirdly just seems to wave it in. This has been abysmal from Switzerland.

Rafael Leao

87th minute: Rafael Leao, who would have been many people’s pick to replace Ronaldo, replaces Fernandes, who has also been superb.

84th minute: Ronaldo has the ball in the net but he was clearly offside.

83rd minute: Xhaka coughs up possession near the centre circle. Bernardo overhits the attempted throughball to Ronaldo.

80th minute: Embolo flicks one up to himself and tries an overhead kick, as if to underline the point that he’s been playing Portugal on his own at times tonight.

76th minute: Bernardo wins a free-kick. Ronaldo stands over it, and does the whole routine. The big steps back, the exaggerated breaths. He smacks it about halfway up the wall. A bit of a sad spectacle. 

Horta and Vitinha

73rd minute: Here comes Ronaldo, Pepe fixes the armband to his bicep. His introduction gets more of a cheer than Ramos coming off, which is ridiculous. Grow up, the lot of you. Horta and Vitinha are also on for Octavio and the exemplary Joao Felix.

70th minute: Lads, behave yourselves. Fernandes just fails to get on the end of Guerriero’s volleyed cross. It would have been an implausible goal. Portugal having so much fun out there.

67th minuteGOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!! Goncalo Ramos!!!!!!

Hat-trick for Ronaldo

Hat-trick for Ronaldo’s replacement. More beautiful creative play from Joao Felix, who feeds it to Ramos for an implausibly composed dinked finish. That’s the first hat-trick of the 2022 World Cup.

64th minute: A large section of fans now chanting to see Ronaldo. Hard to know whether he’ll like that or if it just makes him feel like he’s rapidly become some sort of testimonial footballer.

58th minute: GOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!! Manuel Akanji!!!!!!

Manchester City

It’s been a wretched night for Akanji and his defensive colleagues but the Manchester City defender is on hand to get Switzerland on the scoresheet, prodding home at the back post.

56th minuteGOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!! Raphael Guerriero!!!!!!

Another of Fernando Santos

Another of Fernando Santos’ big selection calls comes up trumps. Switzerland are all over the place, defenders scattered everywhere as Joao Felix glides towards their area. He feeds Guerriero, who lashes one high into the net.

51th minuteGOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!! Goncalo Ramos!!!!!!

World Cup

This is turning into one of the great World Cup stories. Ramos gets in front of his man to prod him Dalot’s low cross at the near post. On his first international start, in place of the greatest international goalscorer of all time, the 21-year-old has his country romping into the quarter-finals with something to spare.

Eray Comert

46th minute: We’re back underway and there’s a change for Switzerland. Schar, who was all over the shop during that first period, has made way for Eray Comert.

Without Ronaldo

Halftime: Switzerland avoid any further damage. Without Ronaldo, Portugal have been simply irresistible. They’re heading for a quarterfinal date with Morocco.

45th minute+3: Portugal play it short and across and Guerriero spanks an ambitious shot over. Given how much Switzerland have struggled from crosses, that feels like a waste.

Dalot and Switzerland

45th minute+2: A scrambling Schar gives away a corner under pressure from Dalot and Switzerland must see this out.

Joao Felix

45th minute: Joao Felix has been absolutely sparkling during this first half. The Atletico Madrid star embarks upon another wonderful run. Fernandes can’t quite pull off a scooped return pass.

43rd minute: Switzerland are all over the place at the back and Sommer does well to stop Ramos from scoring his second.

38th minute: Almost a lifeline for Switzerland. Costa make a bit of a mess of going for Fernandes’ cross from the right. Freuler gets to the loose ball with a header but a combination of the Portugal goalkeeper and Dalot clear their lines.

33rd minuteGOOOOAAAALLLL!!!! Pepe!!!!

World Cup

And you all thought  we’d be seeing no goals from a Portuguese veteran this evening! Fernandes’ corner from the right is inviting, but not to the extent any Switzerland players try to effectively defend it. Pepe powers home to become the second-oldest World Cup goalscorer after Roger Milla.

40 years old in 3 months and he’s still getting on the scoresheet in the big games… 👀#ITVFootball | #FIFAWorldCup

Joao Felix

32nd minute: Joao Felix whips in a devilish ball from the left. Schar has to act and almost nods into his own net. Corner to Portugal.

30th minute: Ohhh, close. Costa takes no chances, tipping the ball away from his bottom corner. From the resulting set-piece, Switzerland are caught offside at the second phase.

29th minute: Embolo gets the better of Dias, who wraps his arms around him to give away a foul. Shaqiri is standing over the free-kick and likes the look of it.

World Cup

28th minute: For the mischievously minded among you, Ramos now has more goals in the knockout stages of the World Cup than Ronaldo.

Goncalo Ramos

⭐️ Goncalo Ramos nets on his first start for Portugal as they lead Switzerland early on in their Round of 16 meeting.

He was only two when Cristiano Ronaldo made his Portugal debut!#FIFAWorldCup

22nd minute: Ramas again. Takes the shot on after a wonderful crossfield ball from Pepe. He probably should have passed to Fernandes inside him, to be honest, but you can’t begrudge him going for glory.

21st minute: Portugal are purring here and so is that man Ramos. He lays into off and Otavio’s bouncing strike is gathered by Sommer.

17th minuteGOOOOAAAALLL!!!!!! Goncalo Ramos!!!!!!!

Joao Felix

Oh my word! Hello, narrative! Joao Felix receives a throw-in and feeds the ball to Ramos. Ronaldo’s replacement spins towards goal and, from inside the penalty area at a tight angle, clatters a sensational strike into the near top corner. Cristiano who?

WHAT A STRIKE!! :star-struck:

Who saw that coming from Goncalo Ramos!! :flag-pt:

The 21-year-old only had 35 minutes of international experience before tonight… :eyes:#ITVFootball | #FIFAWorldCup

Fernandes and Embolo

13th minute: We’ve settled into a bit of an attritional pattern after those early half chances for Fernandes and Embolo. Grab yourselves a coffee.

5th minute: Embolo dribbles across the Portugal box. He’s looking sharp. Pepe gets the block in and it’s a corner to Switzerland.

3rd minute: Dias catches Embolo in the face. Looks slightly painful but the Switzerland forward has made a meal of that one. He’s on his feet again and telling the referee that Dias elbowed him.

Joao Felix

2nd minute: Portugal on the front foot. Joao Felix finds Fernandes well-placed in the box but his touch lets him down.

5 mins from kickoff: The teams are out for the anthems, with Ronaldo having already taken his place on the bench. It’s a very, very unfamiliar vantage point on this stage.

Cristiano Ronaldo

🤯 This is the first time Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t started a #FIFAWorldCup game for Portugal since the 2006 group stage.

— Sporting News Football Club (@sn_footballclub) December 6, 2022

Goncalo Ramos

35 mins from kickoff: So then, Goncalo Ramos. The 21-year-old Benfica forward has stepped into the void left by Darwin Nunez impressively at club level and has 14 goals in 23 appearances across all competitions this season, including nine in 11 in Portugal’s Primeira Liga. That form was enough to earn him a national team call up for the first time last month, although one in six in the Champions League means he still has something to prove in terms of big-game pedigree. All three of his international caps so far have come from the bench.

Switzerland XI

1 hr from kickoff: No such drama in the Switzerland XI, with due respect to Edmilson Fernandes, who gets the nod ahead of Silvan Widmer at right-back.

Goncalo Ramos

1 hr 25 mins from kickoff: More on that apparently pending Ronaldo bombshell. According to Record Benfica forward Goncalo Ramos is set to get the nod ahead of the all-time leading scorer in international football. The decision comes after Santos said he was displeased by Ronaldo’s reaction after being substituted against South Korea in Portugal’s final group game, where qualification was already secured. Throw in his lack of action and tempestuous exit from Manchester United and the array of quality elsewhere in the Portugal squad, this looks like footballing common sense if you stand back from it. Nevertheless, it remains a huge, huge call.

Fernando Santos

1 hr 55 mins from kickoff: Reports are emerging in Portugal that Ronaldo might be on the bench this evening. That would be an absolutely huge bombshell from Fernando Santos, who has been such a Ronaldo loyalist over recent years. 

Xherdan Shaqiri

2 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: With his goal in a typically feisty encounter against Serbia, Xherdan Shaqiri became the first Swiss player to score in three World Cups. He is also one of only three players to score at each of the past three World Cups alongside the usual suspects of Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Both Portugal and Switzerland

2hrs 50 mins from kickoff: Both Portugal and Switzerland will be pretty happy about what’s unfolding in Morocco vs Spain right now. It’s 0-0 and they’d relish playing the winners after a period of extra time. The hour is approaching in that one and you can follow all the action here.

Sofiane Boufal

🪄 Morocco’s Sofiane Boufal completed five successful dribbles vs. Spain in the first half of their Round of 16 clash.

🔥 That’s the second-most any player has managed in a single half of a 2022 World Cup match.#FIFAWorldCup

World Cup

3 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: If Portugal’s World Cup run ends tonight, Ronaldo will turn his attention towards his ongoing period of unemployment. Fear not, there’s apparently a fairly substantial offer on the table…

Saudi Arabia

With a reported move to Saudi Arabia, Cristiano Ronaldo is set for a $96m salary increase 🤯

It would make him the highest-paid athlete on the planet 🤑

World Cup

4 hrs from kickoff: This game will hold no fear whatsoever for a Switzerland side who are one of the most cohesive units in the international game. They’re a generation who have been together for a long time and this is the fifth successive major tournament where they have progressed from the group stage. In the last 16 at Euro 2020 they stunned World Cup champions France before pushing Spain to the brink, eventually losing on penalties.

🙌 Here’s the goal that sealed it for Switzerland.

👀 They have now qualified from their group in the last five major international tournaments.

🤔 How far will they go? #FIFAWorldCup

South Korea

4 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: We are still some way off the teams being announced for this one, but it seems almost certain that Ronaldo will be in the lineup, despite being rested for the final 25 minutes of the South Korea clash.

Cristiano Ronaldo

5 hrs from kickoff: Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the World Cup knockout rounds and determined to end his post-groups goal drought. He has attempted 25 shots in his career in the latter stages of this tournament, but he is yet to find the net. Can he fire Portugal past Switzerland?

Cristiano Ronaldo

25 – Cristiano Ronaldo 🇵🇹 has failed to score with any of his 25 shots in the knockout stage at the World Cup, only Roberto Carlos 🇧🇷 (29) attempted more shots without scoring in the knockout stage in the tournament since at least 1966. Challenge.
