  • La Liga rivalries renewed as Ronaldo and Suarez take center stage in World Cup knockout tie

"A rivalry with Ronaldo here (at the World Cup) and at a club level are two different things".

Uruguay's previous five goals at Russian Federation 2018 all came from set-pieces but they opened the scoring in the seventh minute with a goal of the highest quality. The matchup pits Group A victor Uruguay against Group B runner-up Portugal in a game star power might decide.

Cavani was forced to leave the game in the 74th minute and limped off the field with the assistance of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Uruguay, the two-time world champions who reached the semifinals in 2010, will next face France on Friday (Saturday NZ time) in Nizhny Novgorod.

But there was no goal from Ronaldo this time.

This is the first time Uruguay have won their opening four games to a World Cup tournament since 1930, with the fourth game in that run being their 4-2 victory over Argentina in the final.

"I have to repeat it time and time again", Santos said.

It also isn't clear if families who are kept together will remain so or be separated after 20 days due to an existing court order. Martin Luther King, roused the crowd with by imploring the protesters: "Don't give up, don't give in - keep marching".

Portugal: Patricio 6, Pepe 7, Guerreiro 7, Fonte 6, Pereira 5, Mario 6, A Silva 5, Carvalho 6, B Silva 7, Ronaldo 7, Guedes 5. "Even if he scores three goals in match, you still need to have a team to support him".

Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez will start in central defence and they will count on all their La Liga experience at Atletico Madrid to stop arch-rival Ronaldo in his tracks.

Uruguay took the lead on seven minutes through their dynamic duo.

Pepe found the equaliser 10 minutes into the second half, finally breaking the Uruguayan resistance with Portugal's first real attack, as the Besiktas defender rose highest to fire a bullet header past Fernando Muslera and into the net. With the "Fubo Premier" bundle, you will get access to all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets.

"Cristiano still has a lot to give to football and I hope he will stay to help the young players grow and develop", he said. "Uruguay had never scored like that".

Uruguay were quite comfortable, keeping the Portuguese at bay in the first half with constant running and tackling from Lucas Torreira, Matias Vecino, and Nahitan Nandez.

Attention will now turn to whether Ronaldo will continue to captain Portugal but the 33-year-old stated that those questions are for another day. That's the first goal allowed all tournament for Uruguay.
