Uruguay's Edinson Cavani misses training but scans show no muscle tear

Uruguay has given up only one goal in four World Cup matches, and France has scored seven - most in the 4-3 victory over Argentina in the round of 16.

Perhaps even enough to give France fits in the quarterfinals.

Uruguay superstar Luis Suarez is hoping Edinson Cavani will return early from injury for their Russian Federation 2018 quarterfinal clash against France.

The Portugal skipper further said that he is happy with kind of efforts put in by the players and asserted that this team will continue to win in the future.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo did not touch the ball once in the opposition area in the first period. To my mind, Portugal played better than Uruguay.

"He is their leader, their captain".

Rodrigo Bentancur found Cavani on the right touchline and he swept a magnificent crossfield pass to Suarez. And when Uruguay got its chance to counter, it was deadly with the combo of Suarez and Cavani.

"I learnt that in Italy when I worked there".

For the Iran game, Portugal solved their possession problem, controlling the ball 68 percent of the time while completing a whopping 548 passes compared with their opponent's 155, and with an accuracy rate of 89 percent.

Ronaldo had a great start at the tournament in Russian Federation, scoring four goals in two matches, but he was held scoreless in the next two games as Portugal lost first place in its group and eventually was eliminated by Uruguay. "There is a tournament (the UEFA Nations League) in September and we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the players grow". His pairing with Suarez at the top of Uruguay's attack is critical in relieving pressure and countering with how much Uruguay is willing to play defense.

"I include myself in the three million Uruguayans waiting for Edi", Suarez told a news conference. The Real Madrid forward helped his national team reach into the round last-16 of the world cup 2018, but unfortunately, he couldn't rescue his team from Uruguay who scored twice. They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed.
