PORTO: Cristiano Ronaldo's brilliant hat-trick helped  Portugal  to beat Switzerland 3-1, sending the team into the Nations League final on home soil in Porto on Wednesday.

Ronaldo's free-kick opened the scoring midway through the first-half, but the Swiss levelled when the referee overturned his decision to award Portugal a penalty to give a spot-kick at the other end after a VAR review, and Ricardo Rodriguez levelled.

The game seemed destined to head for extra-time, but as ever Ronaldo stepped up to be the hero with two expert finishes in the final two minutes.
