Having seen Lionel Messi break his World Cup knockout duck to fire Argentina to the last eight on Saturday, can Cristiano Ronaldo do likewise when Portugal face Switzerland?

Meanwhile, Spain must improve following last week's stunning group-stage loss to Japan to maintain their hopes of replicating their 2010 triumph.
