Uruguay Team, Predicted Playing XI & Starting Lineup vs Portugal

Suarez and Cavani have both found the net in three consecutive World Cups, and they have five goals between them here in Russian Federation.

Striker Edinson Cavani fired a brace as two-time champions Uruguay defeated reigning European champions Portugal 2-1 here on Saturday to set-up a FIFA World Cup quarter-final against France.

The concern going forward will be whether or not Suarez can do it without his strike partner if the injury that saw Cavani limp off with the aid of Ronaldo proves serious.

After getting played into space at the edge of the area by Rodrigo Bentancur, Cavani delivered a curling drive from just inside the area that bent around Rui Patricio and into the net, scoring what ultimately proved the victor for the South American side.

The result means Ronaldo followed Lionel Messi out of the World Cup on the same day.

Unfortunately for Portugal, none of the supporting cast stepped up in a match in which the team's captain, marquee player, and talisman registered just a single shot on target.

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.

Ronaldo had an opportunity in the first half to score from a free kick about 30 meters out but could only hit the wall.

Despite the disappointment of exiting a World Cup early - meaning he will be denied the elusive piece of silverware missing from his trophy cabinet - Ronaldo managed a smile for the cameras.

SOCHI, RUSSIA-Luis Suarez believes any rivalry he may have with Cristiano Ronaldo is limited just to their club teams playing the past four years against each other in La Liga.

With or without Cavani, though, Uruguay will make it tough for France and should not be written off.

After huffing and puffing his way through the opening two group matches, Uruguay's talisman Edinson Cavani has finally arrived at the party, and in some style. But with Uruguay sitting back, Portugal did equalise 10 minutes into the second half.
