Portugal Are Out The World Cup After 2-1 Loss To Uruguay

Uruguay's Diego Godin holds the key to locking out Cristiano Ronaldo Fifa World Cup 2018 Uruguay vs Portugal live: When and where to watch

Uruguay captain Diego Godin is the leader of the only defence yet to concede a goal in the World Cup and the Atletico Madrid defender's wealth of experience in facing Cristiano Ronaldo will come in handy in his side's last 16 clash with Portugal.

His four-goal tally in three games - including a hat-trick against Spain - had Portugal dreaming of their first World Cup quarter-final appearance since 2006. Suarez made Patricio produce a one-handed save from a free kick in the 22nd minute.

That doesn't sound like a player who is ready to give up on what has been a life-long World Cup dream and Ronaldo insisted he has enjoyed Russian Federation 2018 despite the outcome for his team.

'I'm absolutely sure this team will continue to be one of the the best in the world.

The World Cup lost its headline acts on Saturday as the game's two biggest stars, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, readied to leave Russian Federation after their teams were eliminated in the round of 16.

Ronaldo may have provided more fireworks, but if World Cup success is the standard by which we measure greatness, the Ronaldo and Messi debate looks set to rage on, with both failing to progress beyond the Round of 16.

Pepe gave Portugal some hope when he found the equaliser in the 55th minute.




Cavani netted the opener for Uruguay in the seventh minute with a powerful header at the back post after he was picked out by Luis Suarez from the left.

The quarter-final match between Uruguay and Portugal will take place in Sochi on Sunday (4am AEST).

Uruguay, meanwhile, had not conceded a goal in 2018 - an impressive run of six games, three of them at Russian Federation 2018. He scored four goals in Russian Federation, including a memorable hat trick against Spain, and while he struggled to make a difference against Uruguay, he has plenty left in the tank and will want to create more history.

Since 1966, only Grzegorz Lato & Andrzej Szarmach (five for Poland) and Michael Ballack and Miroslav Klose (five for Germany) have combined for more World Cup goals than Uruguay's Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez (4). Meanwhile, three of Portugal's last four goals have come from outside the box.

While Cavani stole the headlines with his match-winning brace, defensive midfielder Torreira played a huge role in Uruguay's win, breaking up any number of Portugal attacks.

After huffing and puffing his way through the opening two group matches, Uruguay's talisman Edinson Cavani has finally arrived at the party, and in some style.
