Portugal qualified for the quarter finals for the world Cup and destroyed Switzerland 6-1, no goals was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo and was even benched for the long duration of the game.
Goncalo Ramos scored a hat trick at 17, 51 and 67th minute of the game
Pepe scored at the 33rd minute
Raphael Guerreiro scored 55th minute
Rafael Leao scored the last goal at the extra time of the second half.
Manuel Akanji scored at the 58th minute.
The Portuguese manager Fernando Santos left Ronaldo on the bench, which left fans speculating why that was done if it was because of Ronaldo’s reaction when he was substituted in the previous game or maybe it was just pure football.
Nobody knows the reason for Fernando’s decision but it shows that time tells on everyone and it certainly is for Ronaldo who at the moment doesn’t feel like the spot light in world like he ‘used to be.’
Ramos who is only 21 seem to be the new bright kid on the block for the Portuguese football team and that point might have been proven to Ronaldo through Fernando Santos’s decision.
