Portugal scares without Cristiano Ronaldo and Ramos scores a triple

CR7 entered until they had wiped Switzerland off the field. Portuguese, most solvent to qualify for quarter-finals

Neither Spain (eliminated on penalties by Morocco), nor France and Brazil (classed with clarity and dancing), nor Argentina (who dominated Australia but suffered in the end). It is Portugal, and without Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the best image in the round of 16. They obliterated Switzerland, and were backed 6-1 leaving an incredible image that could have been even more. A prize awaits him in the quarter-finals of the Moroccan World Cup

Portugal overcame a number of stupendous performances against Switzerland to reach the quarter-finals of Qatar 2022 and presented itself as a candidate for everything after a struggle that elevated hat-trick author Gonsalo Ramos, The day he took office at Cristiano. Ronaldo’s eleven.

He did not need the presence of his great captain, great star and reference. When he entered the field, the score already showed the bathroom 5–1 result that Portugal had given to Switzerland. However long he tries, he will have to keep waiting to score in the Qatar 2022 match.

Fernando Santos stunned surprisingly. Cristiano Ronaldo, a nightmare for Switzerland, remained on the bench, as did two other undisputed players, full-back Joao Cancelo and midfielder Ruben Neves, although other starters who rotated against South Korea returned.

The Portuguese coach assured that it was not a punishment for making the ‘7’ gesture in the match against South Korea, but a tactical matter. The fact is that the last time the Madeira striker was substituted in a major competition dates back to the third game of Euro 2008. Interestingly, the opponent was also Switzerland, who also won 2–0.

On this occasion, the opposite happened: the ‘Quinas’ team got rid of the Swiss team, with whom they had lost in the League of Nations this year, and ended the bad streak of recent times in the round of 16. To be in the quarter-finals in the finals for the third time after 1966 and 2006.

Portuguese fans at Lusail Stadium celebrate Spain’s elimination on penalties against Morocco during the preliminary round. Then he found out that Cristiano was not from the game. He ended up claiming it and celebrated when he came off, as Portugal put on a memorable performance throughout the game.

More motivated than Joao Felix, at an excellent level, Bernardo Silva in master plan, Bruno Fernandes unbalanced and helpful, William Carvalho calm and confident, Otavio very active, Portugal taught a lesson to a Switzerland that only bothered at certain times, Very few, but who was easy prey for a much superior opponent.

Everything went well for Fernando Santos. Criticized on several occasions for considering that he does not take advantage of all the great offensive footballers available due to tactical precautions, he hit the key this time. His team had a tasteful, high-flying game.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s substitute, Benfiquista Gonzalo Ramos, repaid the faith. How else. He put the game in favor from the start with a tremendous shot from almost no angle that surprised Yann Sommer (m.17), added the finishing touch at the start of the second half (m.51) and netted a hat-trick past the rival goalkeeper With a subtle touch on (m.67).

Even Pepe, whose coach waited to include him on the list following an injury he sustained before the World Cup, has already covered a significant distance (m.33) when exiting a corner. Became the oldest player to score a KO in a match. in the history of the tournament, and overall, second only to Cameroonian Mili.

The score could have been even bigger till the interval. The Swiss midfield and defense were helpless in front of the high school combinations of Bernardo Silva, Otavio, Bruno and João Félix.

But Portugal did not have to wait long. The crowd at Lusail Stadium applauded wildly when Cristiano Ronaldo went out to warm up, Gonzalo Ramos added to the score with a net ‘9’ shot after a run by Dalot, and almost immediately, in the midst of the celebrations, Rafael Guerrero confirmed his skills as a formidable attacking left-back with the fourth.

Murat Yakin and his men had only to say goodbye to the game with dignity and stop the bleeding. The goal came halfway through, thanks to a goal by central defender Manuel Akanji after a corner kick.

Nevertheless, Gonzalo Ramos closed out his brilliant night in Lusail and gave way to an inconsistent final stretch that only saw Cristiano Ronaldo develop on a pitch that would host the battle for the title, with Rafa Leão finishing last. The chapter was written. A great goal.

Portugal appears as a substitute for the favorites in the quarter-finals. She has a team of real carats when it comes to inspiring her unbalanced men, and it looks like they’re going ahead. Fernando Santos’ team enjoyed and told him to enjoy himself. It crushes permeable Switzerland much more than it usually does.
