Ronaldo-cropped

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez was complimentary of Ronaldo and the rest of the Portugal squad, noting several times Uruguay will be facing the reigning champions of Europe.

Get the latest World Cup news updates. That run ended in the round of 16 at the World Cup, with Ronaldo again failing to score for his country in the knockout round of the tournament. "I'm sure that the national team will remain as one of the best in the world".

Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Cavani, Neymar and so many others are leading lights in Europe, so it is crucial for the game that South America goes deep into this World Cup.

One player who could significantly help Uruguay in trying to contain Ronaldo is defender Jose Maria Gimenez, who missed the group stage finale with a thigh injury.

Portugal will be disappointed with their performance against Uruguay after boasting nearly 70 per cent of possession and firing off 20 shots.

Uruguay are on a flawless winning streak having won all three of their group stage games against Russia, Egypt and Saudi Arabia and are a side gaining momentum as they continue to progress through the tournament.

"Overall, we leave with our heads held high".

"Our next game is in five days which is not a lot of time, but after today we will rest".

Since then, calls to abolish ICE have grown from a whisper to a shout. "We should create something better, something different". The Trump administration has often pointed to a "crisis of illegal immigration " at the USA border.

"The truth is, it was really exciting", Cavani said.

Uruguay took seven minutes to regain the lead as Cavani completed his brace.

'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 flawless and it must be said.

Then the experienced defender had a head in gifting Uruguay the victor on 62 minutes.

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

"I'd like to congratulate Uruguay, who scored twice, but I'd also like to praise Portugal for what they did". You'll see the teams doing their best to win.

Rodrigo Bentancur found Cavani on the right touchline and he swept a magnificent crossfield pass to Suarez. They won all three group games without conceding a goal and beat Portugal with two brilliant goals from Edinson Cavani, who then came off after reporting discomfort in his left hamstring.

Ronaldo had a great start at the tournament in Russian Federation, scoring four goals in two matches, but he was held scoreless in the next two games as Portugal lost first place in its group and eventually was eliminated by Uruguay.

"But we have a very strong team in terms of the mindset and we will always bank on the collective against any rival".
