SOCCER

The World Cup quarter final line up is now complete and Portugal will face Morocco in the last eight in Qatar.

21 year old Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos scored a hat trick on his first international start as Portugal thumped Switzerland 6-1 last night.

Cristiano Ronaldo spent most of the match on the bench.

Morocco beat Spain 3-0 on penalties following a scoreless draw after extra time.

Morocco are into a quarter final for the first time in their history.

Meanwhile, France star Kylian Mbappe  didn't train yesterday as he nurses an ankle complaint.

However he is expected to be fit for the quarter final against England on Saturday night.

 

Elsewhere, Republic of Ireland captain Katie McCabe is likely to feature for Arsenal in their Champions League match with Juventus tonight.

That match kicks off at the Emirates Stadium at 8pm.

In the same group, defending champions Lyon play Zurich from 5.45.


The Arsenal men's team are set to be without Gabriel Jesus for up to two months once the season resumes as he recovers from knee surgery.

The Brazilian scored five goals and provided six assists for the Gunners in the Premier League before the World Cup break.
