Clinical Edinson Cavani shatters Cristiano Ronaldo's World Cup dream


Cavani was replaced by Cristhian Stuani for the remainder of the game as Uruguay held on to their 2-1 lead and secured a quarter-final fixture with France.

"A match-up between Spanish sides Barcelona and Real Madrid, also known El Clasico, is one of the biggest rivalries in sport", Suarez said.

"These are different circumstance of course, the hosts have huge support and they've had a very good tournament, while Uruguay has high quality and top-notch players and they're all excellent - but Portugal too".

France were the first team into the last eight after a thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina which sent Messi home.

38 - Another try for Portugal on the header from Goncalo Guedes but it's saved by Uruguayan goalie Fernando Muslera.

Portugal are out of the World Cup following their match against Uruguay.

Some would call it the dark arts of football, but both Uruguay and Portugal know how to get the job done and they have no issues playing hard if that is what it takes to win.

Edinson Cavani scored his 44th and 45th goals for Uruguay. Even though Portugal does not have the World Cup history that Uruguay has, Oscar Tabarez is quick to remind everyone that Portugal are the reigning European champions and that means they will come into the match with the experience garnered in winning a major title.

There is no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is the great reference point of this Portugal side, a player on which their entire offensive network is sustained.

Uruguay's previous five goals at Russian Federation 2018 all came from set-pieces but they opened the scoring in the seventh minute with a goal of the highest quality.
