Portugal qualified for the last 16 of the World Cup in Qatar as Group H winners, despite lost their last group match 2-1 to South Korea, and have now secured their place in the quarter-finals with a resounding 6-1 win against Switzerland.

Back-to-back wins against Ghana and Uruguay proved enough for Portugal to reach the knockouts. While their preparations for the match were overshadowed by furore over Cristiano Ronaldo being benched, they went on to beat the Swiss thanks to a hat-trick from Goncalo Ramos – who supplanted Ronaldo – and goals from Pepe, Raphael Guerreiro and Rafael Leao, with their opponents only able to muster a consolation through Manuel Akanji in reply.

Fernando Santos’ side will now face Morocco in the last eight. Expect plenty of debate over whether Ronaldo should return to the starting XI.

Who are the star names?

All-time leading international goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to add the World Cup to his horde of trophies. Ronaldo received man of the match honors in the opening win against Ghana, but Rafael Leao was the highest rated player by Telegraph Sport readers with an 8.3 rating and Ronaldo now has a cloud hanging over him.

Bruno Fernandes is one of the team’s talismans, while Leao is one of those who have impressed at AC Milan this season.
