Portugal romped to a 6-1 win over Switzerland in their Round of 16 match of the FIFA World Cup.
Leading the charge this time was not Ronaldo, but 21-year-old striker Goncalo Ramos, who scored a brilliant hat-trick.
Ronaldo has been subpar in the whole tournament, scoring only once in three games before being dropped against the Swiss.
However, the performance of the players around him have shown the world how good Portugal actually are.
Only Kylian Mbappe has been directly involved in more goals than playmaker Bruno Fernandes.
In three games, he has scored 2 goals and assisted three.
Another example is fullback Diogo Dalot , who kept his starting spot after shining against South Korea in the final group game.
In his last three games for Portugal, Dalot got one assist each.
Disaster for Spain adds them to unwanted list
