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

  • Factbox - Uruguay v Portugal

Portugal captain and star striker Cristiano Ronaldo has said that his team played well in the FIFA World Cup and deserved something more out of the tournament.

Uruguay responded within minutes when Cavani curled home after Portugal were pressed into surrendering possession deep in their own half.

"Now is not the time to talk about the future of players and coaches", Ronaldo said.

"The most handsome view in the Russian world cup". 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. "Their play and their speed is incredible".

Messi was mostly a forlorn figure up front in the 2018 campaign, watching the mess at the back as Argentina let in four goals against France, three against Croatia, and a goal apiece against Nigeria and Iceland. The Ever Banega long-range pass in the do-or-die encounter with Nigeria that produced arguably the best goal of the tournament was a rarity.

While taste is subjective and the debate will always contain preference, there are many who believe that Brazil icon Ronaldo Nazario should also be in the discussion, although injuries clearly hindered his career.

Their willingness to put in the work off the ball makes it easy for coach Oscar Tabarez to play them together, and the formidable duo will pose a threat to any opposition.

So, it would seem those discussions have progressed far enough for Toys "R" Us to some hope to fans through that initial post. The toy giant filed for bankruptcy in September 2017 and announced liquidation sales shortly after, CBS New York reports.

Speaking about the player, the AUF commented that Edinson Cavani "continues to be in pain" but that he would undertake physical rehabilitation to control the injury's development.

Uruguay had to withstand fierce late Portugal pressure as the European champions chased an equaliser.

Angry critics have blamed Georgina for Portugal's 1-2 defeat in Saturday's pulsating game in which Ronaldo failed to find the net. Cavani had to fall behind the line of the ball to help out in midfield.

"Uruguay's biggest strength is Uruguay", he said.

The same can not be said for Messi and Ronaldo who, for all their iconic moments and unbeatable club records, have never scored a World Cup knockout goal.

Cavani has a painful swelling but not a tear, the country's football federation said on Monday, increasing his chances of being fit to face France.

"The distinctive feature was the dedication that all the players showed and displayed on the pitch", Tabarez said.
