Football News | Portugal youngster Ramos faces tough test for Seth2022-12-09 11:46
Portugal coach Fernando Santos started Ramos against Switzerland and the young striker responded with a hat-trick that took his side to the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 2006 .
Ramos, 21 , grabbed the headlines when the squad was announced and was chosen to lead the attack in place of Portugal's all-time top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, who was relegated to the bench.
It didn't take long for the youngster to become one of the most high-profile figures at the World Cup in Qatar .
Ramos made his debut in Portugal 's 4-0 pre-World Cup win over Nigeria and came off the bench for 10 minutes in two of three group games.
Against Switzerland, he opened the scoring with a stunning strike at the near post after 17 minutes and sent the ball into the legs of goalkeeper Jan Sommer in the 51st minute, helping four minutes later. Rafael Guerrero scored .
Ramos needs to be at his sharpest
Regraj may have to assign captain Roman Seys to man- mark Ramos after Naif Agaid was injured against Spain .
Seth, an experienced player who spent six seasons in the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers, was described by his former coach Bruno Lager as the " Moroccan Maldini " . A glowing reference to former Italy defender Paolo Maldini.
Morocco have conceded just one goal in four games, with Agde scoring an own goal against Canada and being one of only four teams to reach the quarter-finals without losing a game. One of the teams, so Ramos will need to be at his sharpest to continue his dream start .
