Those who bet on soccer have gone through quite a lot in the FIFA World Cup, and we are only in the quarterfinals. There are so many surprising exits from popular teams, and a lot of underdogs moving further into the tournament. And in the latest soccer news, we have Gonçalo Ramos, a Portuguese soccer player, making the news as he turned a sudden World Cup quarterfinals start into a memorable experience.

The 21-year-old forward scored three goals in Portugal’s 6-1 rout of Switzerland on Tuesday at the tournament in Qatar. Ramos was selected to replace none other than superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting lineup. Fernando Santos, the Portuguese team’s coach, took the decision after benching Cristiano Ronaldo for “tactical reasons,” although Santos was upset because Ronaldo had complained after being removed from the team’s previous encounter against South Korea.
