How do the World Cup quarter finalists compare?

Factbox - Uruguay v Portugal

They both emerged from Uruguay's Baby Football, which grooms children between ages 4 and 13, to play together at different levels, including the under-20 World Cup. Anything can happen in a knockout match, and though Portugal performed well against the Uruguayans and could have emerged winners, Ronaldo was in sporting mood.

Midfielder Diego Laxalt said Uruguay would dig deep into its so-called "Garra Charrua" fighting spirit - named after a ferocious South American warrior tribe - to stop France.

One of the biggest storylines going into this game is the health of Cavani, who scored twice for Uruguay in their 2-1 win over Argentina.

"He doesn't know who we are or what we must do to be successful in football". She also became a mother to Ronaldo's sons, who were born from surrogate mothers earlier.

Suarez revealed he had spoken to Argentina captain and Barcelona team mate Lionel Messi after his exit from the World Cup, but declined to give details. "On a post by Antonella captioned "#VamosPapi", which means "Go Daddy", people commented saying "Papi is a loser" and "I hope you will tell Messi to play a better match against Nigeria".

The two share similar traits as players: they are fiercely competitive, possess a work-rate as monstrous as their goal-scoring records and are capable of producing moments of beauty with the ball. In what was one of Russia World Cup's most spectacular matches, 33-year-old Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo lit up the game with a hat-trick.

Now, the Soccerbot has digested the film, crunched the numbers and broken down every single player on France and Argentina . Argentina scraped into the knockout stages thanks to a dramatic late win in their final Group D game against Nigeria .

"He's a very good player, like (Thierry) Henry a few years ago", he said.

When he moved to Atletico, he befriended more Uruguayans: Cristian Rodriguez, then Gimenez, Godin and fitness coach Oscar Ortega.

"This is a World Cup and Edi's form is very important, but there are players who can do it in the same way, and we hope even better than him".

A slow start and an 89th minute victor that gave them a forgettable 1-0 win over a Mohamed Salah-less Egypt in their first game, has now given way to a campaign with real hope of winning the World Cup.

Uruguay defended tenaciously, battled in midfield and packed a killer punch in their strike duo of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. Not only is he forced to play several roles in one, he stepped up with a great and crucial goal against Nigeria and two vital assists in the last 16 loss to France. A World Cup title is the only thing missing from his collection of accolade.
