  • Suarez Says Rivalry With Ronaldo Different When Playing for Uruguay, Barcelona

Russian Federation 2018 was the 33-year-old's third World Cup and it's unlikely he will be available for Qatar four years time.

The teams will face off at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday in Sochi, Russia, in the 2018 World Cup Round of 16.

Uruguayan fans also showed appreciation to the sportsmanship gesture by Ronaldo, who helped the injured and limping Cavani off the pitch with just 17 minutes left to play.

If Portugal beat Uruguay to set up a date against either France or Argentina, their Last 8 fixture will take place in Nizhny Novgorod.

Portugal hasn't reached the World Cup quarterfinals since 2006, when a young Ronaldo led the team to the semifinals.

So, both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been knocked out of the World Cup on the very same day.

Edinson Cavani struck a brace of brilliant goals in the last-16 tie, either side of a Pepe header, but despite having the lion's share of possession, Portugal could not break down Uruguay's well-drilled defence a second time.

Though trying as he might, captain Ronaldo was unable to prevent his country from losing their fourth consecutive knockout game in a World Cup finals.


As per the itinerary I crafted for myself before landing in Russian Federation, I should remain in Sochi - where I saw Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick heroics vs Spain on Matchday 1 - until July 8.

"These are different circumstance of course, the hosts have huge support and they've had a very good tournament, while Uruguay has high quality and top-notch players and they're all excellent - but Portugal too". "I'm sure that the national team will remain as one of the best in the world".

"No team can win with one player alone", Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.

"And I also want to congratulate the organisation of this World Cup, it has been fantastic in every way; the organisation, the security, the atmosphere is ideal and it must be said".

'Up to this game people were saying that we might have won the group but the group was not easy, ' said Tabarez.

"That was an incredible play", Santos said.

While Uruguay is advancing, it now must be concerned with the status of Cavani after he limped off the field and immediately called for a substitute.
