Edinson Cavani fires Uruguay into last eight after beating Portugal

Just like Lionel Messi and Argentina hours prior, Portugal is out at the 2018 World Cup after being thoroughly defeated 2-1 by Uruguay in the round of 16.

Uruguay will be sweating on Cavani's fitness for the next round after he left the match midway through the second half with an injury, though. Ricardo Quaresma replaces Adrien Silva.

At 33, Ronaldo is still the most important player in Fernando Santos's team, but it really is a case that if you stop Ronaldo, you beat Portugal.

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.

Uruguay have yet to concede a goal in Russian Federation, although going forward they have relied mainly on set pieces to score their goals.

Uruguay performed well in their group matches.

Against Cavani, he has played four matches in the Champions League, scoring three goals, compared to one from the Uruguayan. Cavani changed fields to Suarez, who returned the ball with a lovely back-post cross.

Iran lists demands for improving relations with US
Nevertheless, Iran hopes that Europe will be able to meet it halfway, and Tehran will not have to quit the deal, he stressed. Zarif presented a short list of the rightful demands of the Iranian people from the U.S. government.

"It's not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals". Overall, Uruguay has looked like the far superior squad in this one.

Uruguay remind me so much of Atletico Madrid. And up front they boast two of the greatest goal-scorers of their generation in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani scored with both of his shots on target tonight.

It was a five-pass buildup from deep in its own end that culminated in Uruguay's first goal, and the final two passes were flawless.

And if Uruguay can lock out Ronaldo again and send European champions Portugal home, Godin will surely have a lot to do with it.

Portugal have been dragged to unprecedented heights by Ronaldo over the years, but he now needs help to keep them among the world's elite.

Euro 2016 winners Portugal take on 2010 World Cup fourth-placed side Uruguay in the last 16 of the tournament on Saturday.
