Cavani fires Uruguay into last eight as Ronaldo dream ends

Cavani fires Uruguay into last eight as Ronaldo dream ends

Portugal dominated possession but their attack did not have enough bite to break through the Uruguay defence twice, leaving their captain Cristiano Ronaldo a frustrated figure throughout the match.

"I feel that we're always highly motivated".

Portugal coach Fernando Santos told a news conference he hopes Ronaldo will be available for the start of the Nations League in September.

"It's not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals".

Portugal will not change the way they play, which is quite one-dimensional and not particularly inspiring.

Cavani applied a fine finish to Rodrigo Bentancur's pass in the second half to seal the win.

1966 and drew 1-1 in the 1972 Independence cup.

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.

Suarez is still a threat on his own, but the understanding up front between he and Cavani makes a world of difference to Uruguay in the final third.

Quaresma bent a cross towards Ronaldo, but just over him, and Bernardo Silva's low ball in was cleared before Manuel Fernandes came on for Portugal in place of Joao Mario.

Edinson Cavani limped off in Uruguay's World Cup round-of-16 victory over Portugal with an apparent calf injury on Saturday.

Hopefully that game has set the tone for the remainder of the knockout games.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo has played 514 minutes (five matches) of football in the knockout stages of the World Cup, but has failed to score or provide an assist. The Real Madrid forward would not be drawn on his future but offered up a message of optimism as he departed the Fisht Stadium in Sochi.

Uruguay, a two-time champion that reached the semi-finals at the 2010 World Cup, will next face France on Friday in Nizhny Novgorod.

Fernando Santos: They are a typical South American side.

Ronaldo helped Portugal to glory at EURO 2016 in France but watched much of the final from the sidelines after suffering an injury.

Football statisticians Gracenote Sports believe Portugal have a 6% chance of winning the World Cup, while Uruguay's chances are rated at 5%.

The World Cup match between Uruguay and Portugal will be broadcast live on Fox. "But I also imagine back in Uruguay, we have to keep going for them".

Still, at least Ronaldo managed to, briefly, claim the talking point of this year's competition after his tremendous hat-trick against Spain.
