Uruguay vs. Portugal World Cup live stream info, channel

Asked whether Saturday's contest with Uruguay could be "boring", Portugal boss Fernando Santos told a press conference: "No, I don't think so". Nearly irrespective of who those wins came against, Uruguay will be on a high as one of only three teams to triumph in all their group games in Russia-Croatia and Belgium are the other two.

Tabarez, who has coached Uruguay since 2006, has never hidden his admiration for his captain.

"Not [Diego] Godin. Nobody".

The Madrid derby comes to the shores of the Black Sea in the last-16 with Uruguayan captain Diego Godin, of Atletico, and his club teammate Jose Maria Gimenez coming up against Real and Portugal's five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

The 1-1 draw - combined with Spain's 2-2 draw against Morocco - means that the Portuguese go through to the last-16 in second place, ensuring that they'll face Group A table-toppers Uruguay. - Penalty shootouts excluded, Portugal has lost only one of its last 17 games at major tournaments (W8 D8), a 4-0 defeat against Germany at Brazil 2014. "There are things we need to do from a collective viewpoint to try to limit him", said Tabarez, Uruguay's veteran coach, looking ever more frail at the age of 71.

And after 12 years in charge of the team, Tabarez believes Uruguay are a contender to win the competition. However, they have lost their last three games in the World Cup knockout stages (1 goal scored, 5 conceded).

Germany crashes out of World Cup
The performance was summed up in a contrite tweet from the team's official account. What had undone them was the 1-0 defeat to Mexico .

On Saturday, Gimenez - who scored Uruguay's late victor against Egypt - is set to rejoin Godin in central defence after missing the 3-0 victory over Russian Federation due to injury. "We have to be focused when it comes to Portugal".

Luis Suarez has scored seven World Cup goals for Uruguay, second only to Oscar Miguez (eight) - Suarez scored twice against South Korea in his only previous World Cup appearance in the round of 16, in 2010.

In the Round of 16, the striker will face a rival who also has great offensive potential, but who, in this case, is split between two front men: Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, who are the second best pairing in the World Cup (24) after Neymar and Coutinho (28).

Away from the first game against Spain, Portugal haven't been great.

If he plays, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo (37) will equal Bastian Schweinsteiger (38) as the player with the most appearances at World Cups + European Championships. They were poor against Iran and I think this is where their tournament ends.
