World Cup: Ramos hat-trick as Portugal thrash Swiss to set up Morocco quarterfinal

Goncalo Ramos scored a hat-trick for Portugal in their 6-1 thrashing of Switzerland in a thrilling World Cup round of 16 encounter on Tuesday night.

Ramos made the starting lineup after star forward Cristiano Ronaldo was dropped to the bench by the manager, who had earlier expressed his displeasure over Ronaldo’s attitude after he was substituted in their last match.

Ramos, 21, took advantage of the opportunity and scored three goals to send Portugal to the quarterfinals of the tournament where they face Morocco.

Ronaldo was introduced late on as he entered to rapturous applause in the 73rd minute. He had a goal disallowed for offside, but his side already carried the day.
