Suarez hails Cavani's contribution ahead of quarter-final

We played well, deserved more: Ronaldo

Aside from his feelings for the country, the 27-year-old attacker also appreciates the playing style of a nation that won the inaugural FIFA World Cup in 1930.

"Cavani sustained an injury tonight and we will have to see how that evolves as it's not clear at this stage how serious it is", he said.

After every match of the round 16, another team will be going home. What emerged as well was a seemingly popular view that Messi couldn't deliver on the worldwide stage.

Uruguay also have a reputation as World Cup party-poopers - remember Ghana in 2010 - and history is on their side. With these two, Uruguay has kept their opponents to only one goal.

Les Bleus finally showed what they're capable of with a fantastic attacking display in a 4-3 last-16 defeat of Argentina.

The Liverpool hero said: "I hear that Griezmann thinks he is half Uruguayan". Discussing the Frenchman's love of all things Uruguayan, Godin said: "He loves who we are, our customs and our music, and he drinks more mate than me". Despite all this it is simply harsh to say that Messi had a bad tournament.

For the tournament in Russia, Santos brought 13 players from the Euro 2016 squad, including nine of the players who started in the final against France. "His significance, both for my play and for the team, is key because of the class of player he is".

Brilliant Cavani brace fires Uruguay into last eight
Defender Jose Gimenez is set for a return for Uruguay after missing the victory over Russian Federation with a back injury. He didn't manage to touch the ball a single time in Uruguay's box in the first half, such was its defensive tenacity.

Ronaldo will be a 37-year-old at the beginning of the Quatar World Cup 2022, and there are speculations if Russian Federation will be his last World Cup stop. "They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed", Tabarez admitted to the press (via Sports Mole).

"He's always the best player in the world", he said.

So far in Russian Federation, it seems they have aged well.

Real Madrid star Ronaldo, who donned sunglasses inside, was seen making his way into the airport with his hand-luggage after their bus journey. The Red Devils have qualified for the World Cup scoring 43 goals in 10 games.

However Ronaldo, who will be 37 by the time of the next World Cup, would not be drawn on whether he planned to extend his worldwide career. However, this should not devalue the quality of these two greats.

Suarez then cut inside and sent a pinpoint diagonal cross to the far post where Cavani slipped in unnoticed by seven Portugal players to score with a bullet header. They share the same number of Ballon D'or's with five apiece and both have incredible goal records in Spain and Europe.

The World Cup is in knockout mode and with half of the 32 national teams already culled, including 2014 champions Germany and the Socceroos, the tournament moves into overdrive.
