If 2-0 in favour of at halftime looked like an interesting game, the damage done in the second half changed all the perceptions as the men in green and red thrashed 6-1 to book their place in the quarterfinal for the first time since 2006. 

Goncalo Ramos scored a hattrick on his World Cup debut for while Pepe, Raphael Guerreiro and Rafael Leao scored a goal each. Akanji scored the only goal for


Portugal, who started without Ronaldo for the first time in 14 years, have now booked a date with first-time quarterfinalists Morocco who beat Spain on penalties earlier tonight.


POR 6-1 SUI


The Preview


Portugal, who were beaten by South Korea in their last game would be wary of the Swiss attack which was in its full prime against Serbia in their last game. In fact, Serbia beat Portugal during the World Cup qualifiers and were beaten comprehensively by Switzerland in this World Cup.


By this logic, the Swiss cannot be taken lightly at all by Portugal. The likes of Joao Cancelo, Ronaldo, Pepe and young Rafael Leao alongside Bruno Fernandes have to be on their toes and on the lookout for the likes of Granit Xhaka, Xhedran Shaquiri and Breel Embolo who have troubled Cameroon, Brazil and Serbia a lot during the group stages of the game. 


Portugal Starting 11


Costa; Dalot, Pepe, Dias, Guerreiro; Otavio, Carvalho; B Silva, Fernandes, Felix; Ramos.


Formation: 4-3-3


Switzerland Starting 11


Sommer; Fernandes, Schar, Akanji, Rodriguez; Freuler, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas; Embolo.


Formation: 4-2-3-1
