Uruguay concern over Edinson Cavani injury after Portugal win

Luis Suarez of Uruguay reacts during the match against Saudi Arabia

71 - Edinson Cavani down hurt.

Uruguay played a ideal group stage against relatively weak opponents to make it to the Round of 16, but the South American side proved it has what it takes to make a deep run at the World Cup by sending the reigning European champions home on Saturday.

Uruguay is the only team that didn't concede a goal in the first round - in a group containing Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. A short corner catches the South Americans off guard, it is whipped in by Guerreiro, meeting the head of Pepe who powers home from a matter of yards out. That's the first goal allowed all tournament for Uruguay.

Suarez was close to adding a second with a 21st-minute free-kick but Rui Patricio was alert to beat away the low strike, before Ronaldo hit the wall with a set-piece opportunity at the other end. Star player Luis Suarez scored twice as Uruguay defeated Egypt, Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation to set up a Round of 16 tie with reigning European champions, Portugal. Javier Mascherano brought him down and Griezmann crashed the subsequent free kick off the bar but France only had to wait a couple of minutes to open the scoring.

'England have clear path to World Cup semi-finals'
England's defeat to Belgium meant they finished runners-up in Group G. Rashford said: "It's not the first time it's happened against him".

62' - GOAL! Uruguay 2-1 Portugal: Wow, wow, WOW! He combined with Luis Suarez to compete a series of precision passes to give Uruguay the early advantage with a header in the seventh minute.

And he managed to score a-not-too-shabby four games in the tournament.

Uruguay's winning goal came from their only shot of any kind in the second half.

"We know that they were tight in the midfield, so we had some players playing wide to try to unblock the Uruguay defence".

But the actor has surely made a remarkable comeback since Sanju has become Ranbir Kapoor's highest opening day grosser. This particular scene will make a bad impression about the jails and jails authorities of the Indians", it read.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker had already bagged a brace in the contest, putting Uruguay up 2-1, but was unable to continue in the 74th minute as he limped off the field with the assistance of Cristiano Ronaldo.

It would be a "national disaster" for Uruguay should Edinson Cavani miss their quarter-final tie against France, according to Sportsmail expert Martin Keown.

This was Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo's 38th game in World Cups/European Championships - no player has played in more across the two competitions (equal with Bastian Schweinsteiger).

The 33-year-old did however say that European champions Portugal could look forward to the future with confidence.
