    Okay, I think that Ronaldo probably shouldn't start any more, barring an injury to Ramos.

    Yeah. When the guy who replaces you gets a hat trick. . . you're replaced for awhile.

    Time to put in the scrubs so your starters don't get injured.

    And other people need to jump on that rep bandwagon for the first one. Only one astute poster hit it up so far.

    The Swiss are going to have to pick it up if they plan on PKs.

    As my mom was asking me about who was good when I visited her and watched a few matches over Thanksgiving, I told her that if Portugal ever are let loose and play attacking football, they are my favorite to win the cup.

    Ronaldo coming off the bench is quite a luxury

    Fair point.

    Also. . . the last time a Portuguese player scored three in an elimination game, England went on to win the world cup!!!

    Okay... not a good point.

    Didn't expect Switzerland to win. But I thought the match would be close.

    If I'm Morocco, I'm seriously hoping to see Ronaldo in the starting line up on Saturday.

    This is the scenario I envision. Ramos scores 8 or 9 more goals while Ronnie warms the bench. In the final against the Lions Ramos is benched and Harry Maguire nutmegs Ron for the winning goal! :whistling:
