Uruguay vs. Portugal World Cup live stream info, channel

Portugal coach Fernando Santos once again stressed the importance of his other 22 players around main man Cristiano Ronaldo as they prepare to face Uruguay in the World Cup last 16 on Saturday.

Ricardo Quaresma's superb strike gave them the lead against Iran in their third group game, before Ronaldo missed a penalty.

With 27 meetings against Ronaldo in the bruising Spanish capital derby between Atletico and Real Madrid, winning eight times, drawing nine and losing 10, few players are better placed to come up with a strategy to shackle Ronaldo than Godin.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a soccer prodigy, hands down.

Uruguay, meanwhile, go into the knockout stages aiming to win their third World Cup, and first since 1950, in Russian Federation.

Uruguay are yet to concede at the World Cup, but Portugal have kept only one clean sheet.

Uruguay have the benefit of two world class strikers rather than one, and they also have the best defender of the tournament so far in Diego Godin.

England were not aiming for victory against Belgium - Southgate
Live: Coverage across BBC TV, BBC Radio and BBC Sport website with further coverage on Red Button, Connected TVs and mobile app. What if England needed all three points on Thursday? "The outcome of this throw of the dice will be known on Tuesday".

Portugal opened their World Cup campaign in Sochi with a thrilling 3-3 draw against Spain, and midfielder Adrien Silva said his team have what it takes to score against a Uruguay rear-guard that has not been breached this year.

Uruguay will be looking to win their opening four games at a World Cup tournament for only the second time after 1930 when they won the first ever World Cup. Several phases of the game they're very strong.

All five of Uruguay's goals at the 2018 World Cup have been scored from set-pieces (three from corners, one from a direct free-kick and one from an indirect free-kick).

Luis Suarez of Uruguay reacts during the match against Saudi Arabia.

These two countries with a combined population of 13.5 million have always been overachievers on the global scene - the last decade under Tabarez has seen two-time former winners Uruguay reach one World Cup semi-final and win one Copa America, while Portugal triumphed at Euro 2016.

Ronaldo has been in devastating form in Russian Federation, scoring four goals to help European champions and Group B runners-up Portugal reach the knockout rounds.

Portugal head coach Fernando Santos. He has reached the knockout stages on each previous occasion: Euro 2012 quarter-finals & World Cup 2014 round of 16 with Greece; Euro 2016 winners and at least World Cup 2018 round of 16 with Portugal. Sports Illustrated's Planet Fútbol, meanwhile, predicted a 2-1 victory for Uruguay. Karim Ansarifard's controversial penalty however, combined with Spain's injury time equaliser against Morocco, sent them into the harder half of the draw. "Portugal, like everyone else playing on Saturday, are one of 11 teams with at least 5% chance of winning the competition".
