Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick saw Portugal qualify for the inaugural Nations League Final, as they beat Switzerland 3-1 on Wednesday night in Porto, MySportDab reports.

Switzerland could've taken the lead on numerous occasions, with Xherdan Shaqiri and Haris Seferović each missing a string of chances.

Cristiano Ronaldo then missed his own big opportunity, as he scuffed his shot wide after Manuel Akanji's pass was intercepted.

Portugal took the lead after 25 minutes, thanks to a smart free-kick from Ronaldo.

The free-kick was awarded despite Kevin Mbabu winning the ball, and without any complaint Ronaldo assumed duty and struck the ball home to put the Selecao das Quinas in front.

The second half began with huge drama, as VAR came into action for the first time.

First, Switzerland appealed for a penalty as Nelson Semedo clipped Steven Zuber.

As the advantage was played, Portugal went up the other end and were awarded a penalty of their own.


However, after a VAR check referee Felix Brych reverted his decision to award a penalty for Portugal, and instead gave a penalty to Switzerland.

Ricardo Rodríguez stepped up, and kept his cool to fire home and deservedly draw the Schweizer Nati level.

In the 88th minute, Ronaldo picked up the ball on the edge of the box and swept home emphatically to restore Portugal's lead.

Just two minutes later and Ronaldo had his hat-trick, as a sublime piece of footwork and a beautiful curling finish sent Portugal into the final.

Ronaldo single handedly carried Portugal today they didn't get the formation right Felix did not deliver, pepe injured, but when you have Ronaldo in an average team you still have a chance.


BTW

I will pretend as if I don't see that fabulous pass from Ronaldo that Felix missed.
I always wonder when they says Ronaldo is only a scoring machines but he have more assist than the best playmakers in football history.

Fernando Santos: "What can I say about Ronaldo? All the adjectives have been used. He's a genius. There are painters who are geniuses, sculptors who are geniuses, he's a football genius."

That's the definition of a GOAT

They have to feel your impact on both the club side and the national level
