Cavani scores brilliant double as Uruguay knock out Portugal

Uruguay Boss Believes Even Diego Godin Can't Handle Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese have dominated the time of possession having the ball for 64-percent of the first half.

Uruguay's quartet of young midfielders in Matias Vecino, Rodrigo Bentancur, Lucas Torreira and Nahitan Nandez did well to cut down the spaces to reduce the supplies to Ronaldo as Portugal trailed by a goal at the half-time.

The PSG forward turned in one of the performances of the tournament so far, single-handedly guiding his country over the line and into the last eight. "The team didn't win because Uruguay scored twice. We will have to work collectively to try to contain him, in order to try to limit the effect he can have".

Suarez forced Rui Patricio into a diving save in the 21 minute.

I was informing not consulting Messi, says Argentina coach
Yes, it would be the two of the greatest of our generation, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to go toe to toe at the greatest stage of them all; FIFA World Cup .

There were just seven minutes on the clock at Fisht Stadium in Sochi when Suarez and Cavani combined to devastating effect to put the South Americans ahead.

6th minute - Ronaldo gives it a rip from outside the box but can't convert it.

Messi's side were kicked out the World Cup following their loss to France earlier today; with many people speculating that it could be Messi's and Ronaldo's last ever World Cup.

Uruguay's winning goal came from their only shot of any kind in the second half.

Joachim Low will remain Germany coach despite disappointing result
South Korea switched 4-1-4-1 when defending, but the skillful Mexicans knew how to exploit open space and dominate the midfield. They lost their opening game 1-0 to Mexico and needed Toni Kroos's dramatic late free-kick to beat Sweden 2-1.

Ronaldo nearly had a chance at goal on 20 minutes but a timely clearance by Gimenez six yards was enough to keep Ronaldo at bay. Twelve of those have been assisted by Luis Suarez.

With or without Cavani, though, Uruguay will make it tough for France and should not be written off. Star player Luis Suarez scored twice as Uruguay defeated Egypt, Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation to set up a Round of 16 tie with reigning European champions, Portugal.

"It's not the time to talk about the future of the coach, the players, the squad", he said, "but rest assured that this national team will continue to be one of the best in the world".

Ronaldo - still waiting for his first goal or first assist in a World Cup knockout game - was kept very quiet and was outshone by Paris Saint-Germain and Uruguay striker Cavani on the weekend. While defending a short corner, Pepe was left free to head home the equaliser on 53 minutes.

Argentina's Last Gasp Win Told Through The Medium Of Diego Maradona
Striker Andrew Nabbout is set to miss the game after dislocating his shoulder against Denmark, so Tomi Juric should replace him in the Socceroos' attack.

The 33-year-old began the tournament in thrilling fashion, contributing an extraordinary three goals in Portugal's 3-3 draw against Spain on June 15, and five days later scored the only goal in Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco.
