Suarez hurt in Uruguay training as Cavani sits out team session

Factbox - Uruguay v Portugal World Cup: Portugal ousted by a Uruguay, superior version of themselves
| 04 July, 2018, 07:35

Remarkably, the pair pack their bags still never having scored in a World Cup knockout game.

The Argentina fans were now in full voice but their joy did not last long before France restored parity after 57 minutes, Pavard pouncing on an over-cooked cross some 20 metres out and lashing it on the half-volley into the net. Uruguay is the only team that didn't concede a goal in the first round - in a group containing Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. "That is part of the way we see football".

"Everybody knows he's (Mbappe) a really good player, but I think we have a really good defence to control him", said the Barcelona striker.

When the inevitable question about Portugal's record goal-scorer Ronaldo came, the 63-year-old's face broke into a grin.

It's the World Cup that keeps on giving... Named as World's best player on five occasions by Federation Internationale de Football Association, he led his country to win the first European Championships trophy in 2016.


"We have many young players and it is important to have our captain there".

It remains to be seen who Uruguay will turn to to replace Cavani if, as expected, he is out for the game, with Girona forward Christhian Stuani and Celta Vigo's Maximiliano Gomez both possible options to start alongside Suarez.

"It was hard", he continued.

"I include myself in the three million Uruguayans waiting for Edi", he told reporters on Tuesday afternoon. France go into the match after a relatively comfortable group stage and after resting players in their last group match. Right now we can't say with any certainty what the injury is or might be. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard". Messi will have to be at his very best if they are to get past France, who are much better than the Nigerians. With Messi being the strongest performer, Argentina have made it to the 2014 World Cup final which they lost in extra time and two successive Copa America finals with Chile (interestingly managed by Sampaoli in 2015) which they both lost on penalties.

"We tried our best and we played a good game". We have played a lot of matches [and] he hasn't had a lot of rest.
