02:39 (IST)7 DEC 2022

That's it for the night. We have a two-day break before the quarter-finals come on. So time for everyone to take a well-deserved break. We will be back on Friday again. Till then take care and be well. Good night and ta, ta!

02:38 (IST)7 DEC 2022

02:32 (IST)7 DEC 2022

02:28 (IST)7 DEC 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: Portugal are only the second team in the 21st Century to score 6+ goals in a World Cup knockout stage match, after Germany versus Brazil in the 2014 semi-final (7-1).

02:26 (IST)7 DEC 2022

A couple of tweets before we end this one.

02:26 (IST)7 DEC 2022

So Portugal v Morocco in what should be an interesting quarter-final.

02:24 (IST)7 DEC 2022

FULL-TIME! Portugal 6 Switzerland 1. A comprehensive thrashing underlined by coach Santos picking Goncalo Ramos over Cristiano Ronaldo and the youngster responded with a hat-trick. Portugal just were levels above Switzerland who just wilted under the onslaught. 

02:21 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Rafael Leao in the 92nd minute! Portugal 6 Switzerland 1. That's what Leao can do as we have seen so many times this season for AC Milan. He gets the ball on the left, cuts in and curls a delicious strike into the far corner leaving Sommer rooted. That is a special goal and trademark Leao.

02:20 (IST)7 DEC 2022

4 minutes of added time.

02:18 (IST)7 DEC 2022

One more change for Portugal: Rafael Leao on and Bruno Fernandes off.

02:14 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Another change for Portugal as Ruben Neves replaces Bernardo Silva.

02:13 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Ronaldo scores but he is OFFSIDE! Ronaldo goes a bit too early and even though he drives it fiercely past Sommer the flag is up. The right call and one that Ronaldo probably knew as well.

02:10 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Embolo with a highly ambitious overhead kick but it takes the head of Dalot and goes for a corner. Xhaka heads over from the corner.

02:05 (IST)7 DEC 2022

The crowd cheer wildly as Ronaldo with a wry smile comes on. Pepe gave him the captain's armband as well.

02:04 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Triple change for Portugal: Ronaldo, Horta, and Vitinha come on, while Ramos, Otavio and Felix come off.

02:00 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Ramos' hat-trick was the first at this World Cup as well.

01:59 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Just before that Ramos hat-trick, Switzerland made a change: Noah Okafor replaces Vargas.

01:57 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Goncalo Ramos in the 67th minute! Portugal 5 Switzerland 1. A hat-trick for the man who came in for Ronaldo for this one. Again Joao Felix is the one who slide-rules it into Ramos who with Sommer approaching dinks it over him to complete a fine hat-trick. First start and a hat-trick. Talk about dreams!

01:54 (IST)7 DEC 2022

"Ronaldo, Ronaldo," is the chant currently inside the Lusail Stadium. The Portugal supporters want to see him have a go.

01:50 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Double substitution for Switzerland amongst those quick goals: Denis Zakaria and Haris Seferovic replace Djibril Sow and Remo Freuler.

01:48 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Manuel Akanji in the 57th minute! Portugal 4 Switzerland 1. Swiss score from a corner. It is flicked on at the near stick by Ramos and Akanji at the back stick sorts his feet out in time to turn it in. Just a consolation goal or a tiny glimmer of hope for Switzerland?

01:46 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Raphael Guerreiro in the 55th minute! Portugal 4 Switzerland 0. Switzerland are being carved open. This time the left-back is allowed to run free and he has the time, space and finish to arrow it into the top corner. Switzerland were just ripped apart with one-touch passing and their defence was all at sea.

01:41 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Goncalo Ramos in the 50th minute! Portugal 3 Switzerland 0. That should be game over. Delightful feet from Dalot on the right, he crosses to the near-post where Ramos gets in ahead of his man and toe-pokes it past Sommer - nutmegged him on the way. Clinical finish.

01:34 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Second half begins.

01:20 (IST)7 DEC 2022

HALF-TIME! Portugal 2 Switzerland 0. So comfortable for Portugal who have been vibrant all half and have two goals to show for it. Ramos and Pepe the goalscorers. Switzerland haven't threatened much and need a big effort to come back from here.

01:17 (IST)7 DEC 2022

4 minutes of added time.

01:15 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Good save by Yann Sommer to keep out Ramos who was set up by Bruno Fernandes with a through ball. In that passage of play Fabian Schar lunged in on Joao Felix and the referee came back to award him an Yellow card for that challenge.

01:05 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Pepe in the 33rd minute! Portugal 2 Switzerland 0. The 39-year-old rises highest to a floated corner and thumps it past Sommer. A beauty of a corner from Bruno Fernandes and Pepe wanted it the most. Talk about his desire there. Portugal with a comfortable cushion.

01:04 (IST)7 DEC 2022

What a cross from Joao Felix and it looks to be landing on the head of Ramos till Fabian Schar glances it wide.

01:01 (IST)7 DEC 2022

A free-kick some 40 yards just right of centre and Shaqiri almost finds the corner - he curls it over the wall and the diving Diogo Costa gets a fingertip to push it wide. 

00:56 (IST)7 DEC 2022

It's only the 21-year-old's fourth international cap and just the 35 minutes of international action before this for Goncalo Ramos. Talk about an impact.

00:52 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Monteiro Otavio with a volley on the rise but straight at Sommer.

00:49 (IST)7 DEC 2022

GOAL! Goncalo Ramos in the 17th minute! Portugal 1 Switzerland 0. Talk about taking your chance. Coming in for Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramos has thundered one in beating Yann Sommer at his near-post. To the roof of the net with his left-foot and he left the goalkeeper stunned. There was no angle but somehow he has got the ball to sneak in.

00:42 (IST)7 DEC 2022

Ruben Dias with a heavy touch at the back and Shaqiri nearly gets in.

00:40 (IST)7 DEC 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't been named in Portugal's starting XI for a game at a major tournament for the first time since 2008 (also against Switzerland), ending a 31-game streak in which he had been a starter.

00:30 (IST)7 DEC 2022

KICK-OFF!

00:24 (IST)7 DEC 2022

The players are in the tunnel. Next are the anthems.

00:02 (IST)7 DEC 2022

23:52 (IST)6 DEC 2022

Goncalo Ramos replaces Ronaldo up front for Portugal, one of eight changes from the defeat to South Korea. Pepe is the captain.

23:24 (IST)6 DEC 2022

CRISTIANO RONALDO HAS INDEED BEEN BENCHED - WOW! 

23:24 (IST)6 DEC 2022

Switzerland XI:

Sommer; Fernandes, Schär, Akanji, Rodríguez; Freuler, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas; Embolo.

23:24 (IST)6 DEC 2022

Portugal XI:

Diogo Costa; Dalot, Rúben Dias, Pepe, Cancelo; Otávio, William Carvalho, Bruno Fernandes; Bernardo Silva, Gonçalo Ramos, João Félix.

22:57 (IST)6 DEC 2022

JUST IN - Portuguese newspaper Record are now reporting that Cristiano Ronaldo has indeed been DROPPED by Portugal, wow! 

22:51 (IST)6 DEC 2022

Switzerland, on the other hand, saw off Serbia by the odd goal in five in their last group stage game to book their place in the knockout stages. They made headlines last year with an incredible extra-time victory against France at Euro 2022 - can they ruffle a few feathers once again and eliminate Portugal? 

22:49 (IST)6 DEC 2022

Portugal are heading into this game on the back of a shock 2-1 defeat to South Korea - a game in which Cristiano Ronaldo made headlines once again. The Portugal captain didn't enjoy his best performance on the pitch and also reacted angrily when he was subbed off, with Fernando Santos later admitting that was irked by his talisman's behavior. The Portugal manager refused to confirm if Ronaldo would start against Switzerland, so watch this space... 

22:25 (IST)6 DEC 2022

Meanwhile, the Round of 16 clash between Spain and Morocco is heading into extra time, as neither side was able to break the deadlock within 90 minutes.
