Portugal won big even without their captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, who was dropped to the bench, making it the talk of the town before the game.

However, manager Fernando Santos’ choice has been utterly justified with the team’s captain replacement, Gonçalo Ramos, scoring a remarkable hat-trick after netting 3 goals in the match against Switzerland.

Portugal managed to win with 6 goals which were scored 3 times by Gonçalo Ramos, then followed by Pepe, Raphaël Guerreiro and lastly, Rafael Leão, while Switzerland only managed to score once.

Portugal was fluid in possession, with Ramos’ astute movement creating a target to strike in behind and space to work in for Bernardo Silva, Joo Félix, Bruno Fernandes, and others.

The winning team was able to slice open the Switzerland players time after time as the latter group appeared uncomfortable playing with three at the back in the first half. Nevertheless, M. Akanji scored one goal in the 58th minute of the match.
