After finishing ahead of Croatia and Belgium in the group stage, the Atlas Lions shocked Spain when they won on penalties to advance to the round of 16 stage at the World Cup for the first time in their history.
They now face a Portugal side that is brimming with self-confidence, having dismantled Switzerland in a 6-1 win last time out.
Fernando Santos made the big call to abandon Cristiano Ronaldo for that match and it paid off, with his 21-year-old replacement Goncalo Ramos scoring the tournament’s first hat-trick.
Although they won the Euro Cup six years ago, this is not a particularly familiar stage for Portugal either. Only twice before have they reached the last eight of a World Cup.
