FIFA World Cup: Portugal hammered Switzerland 6-1

Cristiano Ronaldo was replaced by Goncalo Ramos, who scored three goals.

Portugal thrashed Switzerland 6-1 to advance directly to the World Cup quarterfinals.

Head coach Fernando Santos made a brave call to drop Ronaldo following a dispute in their last match.

But Portugal proved to be free-scoring without him, setting up a quarterfinal clash with Morocco on Saturday.

On the 58th minute, Manuel Akanji of Switzerland found space at the back post from a corner and confidently nodded in.
