Sons of Salto Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez drive Uruguay’s campaign

World Cup player watch: No rest for the wicked

Factbox - Uruguay v Portugal

Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez praised his side for their hard work and dedication as they managed to knock Portugal out of the World Cup and progress to the quarter-finals.

Denmark coach Age Hareide said his side's match against Croatia could boil down to who comes out on top in the midfield battle between Tottenham powerhouse Christian Eriksen and Modric.

Yet Cavani stole the limelight early when he switched play a long cross to Suarez and continued his run to head home a pinpoint deep cross from the Barcelona forward and give Uruguay a seventh-minute lead.

While Ronaldo will be bitterly disappointed to be heading home earlier than planned from Russian Federation, he at least has the consolation of having won his country's first ever European Championship, two years ago in France. "It's a match between the two teams, Portugal and Uruguay, and we'll do everything we can to win". "There is a tournament in September, the UEFA (Nations League) and we hope he will be with us to help the younger ones to grow", he told reporters.

Ultimately, Uruguay were able to tempt Portugal into taking shots from distance and then smother them, blocking eight of the 20 Portuguese efforts on goal. They pressured hard from the beginning but it was Uruguay scored first.

"Even if you don't have much ball possession", he added, "you can still inflict pain on the opponent in different ways". "We tried our best and we played a good game I think", he said.

He had an opportunity in the first half to score from a free kick about 30 metres out but could only hit the wall. He also scored the fastest goal at the tournament so far, struck its first hattrick, and, just for good measure, has now scored more goals in national team football than any other player. "But you always want to win, and we lost, so well done to Uruguay for making it through".

Russian Federation 2018 has been a tournament where strikers have come to the party; Harry Kane has scored 5 goals and Romelu Lukaku has 4, yet Uruguay are the only side to play with two out-and-out strikers. People went on to blame Georgina for bringing bad luck to the team and her partner, who missed various chances at the net since she was present at the game held at Sochi's Fisht Stadium.
