Cavani sends Uruguay to World Cup last eight as Portugal bow out

Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Godín have faced off on many occasions

63 - First substitution of the match is for Uruguay and it's Cristian Rodríguez for Rodrigo Bentancur. Pepe heads it in to knot things up, 1-1.

52 - Uruguay's defense is rock solid.

Portugal had chances in the second half, including a frantic final few minutes of stoppage time with claims of a possible handball in the penalty area from a late corner kick.

It's been all about Uruguay in this one.

"There's not one single player who can contain him".

Uruguay held on the rest of the way, despite having just 33 percent of possession.

"It's not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals - it has been like that for the whole of 2018".

Suarez is down with what looks like a blow to the head.

Goalkeepers - Martin Campana, Fernando Muslera, Martin Silva. Uruguay looking much more comfortable than the Portuguese. Cavani restores Uruguay's lead with a attractive strike.

As play switched to the other end, Fonte brought down Suarez for a unsafe 25-yard free kick and the forward's low shot was well saved by Rui Patricio.

Forwards: Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain), Maximiliano Gomez (Celta Vigo), Luis Suarez (Barcelona), Cristhian Stuani (Girona), Jonathan Urretaviscaya (Monterrey).

6th minute - Ronaldo gives it a rip from outside the box but can't convert it. Uruguay made one change from their last game, a 3-0 win over hosts Russian Federation, with Jose Gimenez coming in at the back to replace Sebastian Coates.

Suarez went close to a second when Patricio pushed out his 22nd-minute free-kick and Cavani shot wide in the final moments of the first half after controlling Godin's towering punt. They had just 30% possession after halftime.

In the end, Cavani's two goals were enough to sink Portugal 2-1 and cancel out a Pepe equalizer and send Ronaldo home. Lucas Torreira with the delivery, but no shot on-target from it.

Despite his team's wobbles, Ronaldo is a goal off the pace for the Golden Boot, scoring four times thus far-more than he's scored in all three of his previous World Cups combined.

Uruguay defender Sebastian Coates, talking about Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, said: "We will mark him with the same respect we mark everyone, despite him being a superstar".

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo will be foremost in the minds of Uruguay defenders, while the Europeans' back line must be wary of the threat forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani pose atop the South Americans' attack.
