Uruguay’s Cavani has swollen calf, not tear, as France…

  • Uruguay's midfielder Matias Vecino and Uruguay's forward Luis Suarez attend a training session at the Sport Centre Borsky in Nizhny Novgorod

Luis Suarez has highlighted Edinson Cavani's importance to Uruguay but also that "things don't depend on just one player" ahead of Friday's World Cup quarter-final against France.

Griezmann tried his luck with an effort from outside the box which was straight at Muslera, but the keeper's ill-chosen attempt to palm the ball away ended with him merely deflecting it into the net.

The victory gave France a spot in the World Cup semifinals. He nearly cost his side a second goal when he made a decision to tuck up a trick against Antoine Griezmann.

But Griezmann said France were mindful of Uruguay's threat and had more than one way of winning a game.

"But I know the desire and attitude he has and we know that if it was up to him he will be there". "I'll support him as a friend and teammate so that he gets his head back up as soon as possible".

#WC2018: Croatia beat Russian Federation on penalties to set up semi against England
Croatia started the second half more urgent than they did the first and looked the more unsafe out of the two sides. Croatia will play England, who earlier beat Sweden 2-0 in Samara, at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday.

Griezmann may not be connected to Uruguay through his immediate family, but all throughout his footballing career, he's had support from a number of Uruguayan coaches and players. He likes the traditional South American drink mate, he speaks Spanish like someone from the South American country and he's been pictured wearing the team's jersey.

"We were hardly competing internationally", he said in one interview.

Uruguay's Fernando Muslera concedes as France's Antoine Griezmann scores their second goal. France will face Uruguay on July 6, 2018 in Nizhniy Novgorod for their quarter final match of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup football tournament. They won their only World Cup in 1998 on home soil, and in 2006 lost to Italy on penalties.

The result set up a semi-final tie against the winners of the other quarter-final being played on Friday, contested between Brazil and Belgium.

Coach Oscar Tabarez is anxious ahead Friday's showdown with France with Suarez confident that Uruguay can cope without Cavani if the striker does not recover from the injury. The Paris Saint-Germain star suffered a calf injury after scoring twice to knock out European champions Portugal in the last round.Suarez said: "I include myself in the three million Uruguayans who wait for Edi".
