La Celeste's strength is based on the twin pillars of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani up front and Atletico Madrid center-back pairing Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez, who must face up to a familiar foe.
Cristiano Ronaldo can not beat Uruguay all by himself. That miss, however, has probably fired the 33-year-old to come up with a stronger display in this encounter. Then off I'll go to Moscow to cover one semi-final match and the ultimate final, both from the Luzhniki stadium.

Tabarez, who is in his 14th year as Uruguay manager, albeit across two spells, is understandably planning that his side will have to work as a team to contain the five-time Ballon D'Or victor.

However, Djokovic repelled five break points, showing the sort of defensive prowess he used to offer up in his pomp. Marin Cilic has gone from Queen's Club runner-up 12 months ago to being the 2018 champion.
While plans are still being finalized, Trump's July visit falls on Friday the 13th - a date considered unlucky by some. Footage of children held in cages and crying for their parents has drawn condemnation in the past week.
