Hello and welcome to the HIGHLIGHTS from Portugal vs Switzerland FIFA World Cup Round of 16 game at the Lusail Stadium.

02:35 - Portugal break the Round of 16 barrier

The Portuguese have made it to the last eight for the first time since 2006.

02:30 - Ramos in the record books!

Ramos is becomes the first player to score a hattrick in his first World Cup start since Germany’s Miroslav Klose in 2002.

Full Time: POR 6-1 SUI

Portugal move to the last eight and in some style. They fired six past the Swiss, and on a day when its fabled forward, the greatest of all time was left on the bench. It was a 21-year-old Goncalo Ramos who relished the limelight and centre stage. Pepe too got a goal before Guerreiro and Leao joined the party. It was a valiant effort from the Swiss in the World Cup but the knockout punch will hold a mirror to the team. For Portugal, the focus shifts to Morocco. The Africans stunned the Spanish on Tuesday and will have their sights set on the Portuguese.


A last flourish by Portugal as Ronaldo gets in behind to chase a through ball. The ball goes out but Portugal win a corner.

Oh Portugal are not done! Leao scores the sixth goal.

Drink it in, Ramos! You’ve been remarkable today. This one is a fluid move from Portugal. Bruno plays it to Felix who taps the ball into Ramos’ path.

23:21 - The big breaking news of the day - Ronaldo benched!

In the 1-2 defeat to South Korea last week, Ronaldo was unhappy with Santos’ decision to take him off the pitch in the second half. The Portuguese media have shown images that suggest he used vulgar language in response to Santos’s decision.

Santos said he was unimpressed with Ronaldo’s behaviour after the forward reacted angrily.

23:12 - Lineups for the game:

Portugal: Diogo Costa, Diogo Dalot, Pepe, Ruben Dias, Raphael Guerreiro, Bruno Fernandes, Otavio, Bernardo Silva, Joao Felix, William Carvalho, Goncalo Ramos

Switzerland: Yann Sommer, Edimilson Fernandes, Manuel Akanji, Breel Embolo, Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka, Ricardo Rodriguez, Djibril Sow, Ruben Vargas, Fabian Schaer, Xherdan Shaqiri


Portugal coach Fernando Santos has been boosted by news that key midfielder Otavio should be fully fit and ready to play in its World Cup last-16 match against Switzerland on Tuesday.

Centre half Danilo Pereira, who sustained three broken ribs last week, is also recovering well and could feature later in the tournament.

His replacement in the last two matches was 39-year-old defender Pepe, who is likely to keep his place and be tasked with marking Swiss striker Breel Embolo, who has scored twice in the tournament.

Pepe will be paired with Manchester City centre back Ruben Dias, who was rested for their last group match against South Korea which Portugal lost 2-1.

Santos was forced into a change at left back after Nuno Mendes was ruled out of the World Cup due to an injury suffered in the first half against Uruguay.

Santos switched Joao Cancelo to the left and brought in Diogo Dalot at right back and the coach is expected to keep the same formation against Switzerland.

Captain Cristiano Ronaldo will bid again to equal the record of World Cup goals scored for Portugal held by Eusebio, who racked up nine in 1966 in England.

Switzerland have their own forward seeking a place in the record books.

Xherdan Shaqiri’s goal against Serbia in the group stage meant he has found the net in more World Cup tournaments than any other Swiss player, having also scored in 2014 and 2018.

He is one goal away from matching the most World Cup goals scored by a Switzerland player - six, by Sepp Huegi all in 1954.

The Swiss quietly finished second in their group behind Brazil, victories over Cameroon and Serbia earning their place in the last 16.
