Cavani's brace sends Uruguay through as Ronaldo's Portugal bow out of Russian Federation

Portugal v Uruguay - Preview and possible lineups

"We played well in the second half and tried everything possible, but congratulations to Uruguay", said Portugal coach Fernando Santos, who hopes Ronaldo will continue his worldwide career.

If he's right about that, he could be playing at not just the next World Cup but the 2026 World Cup as well.

Ronaldo could not add to the four goals he scored in the group stages.

"But rest assured that this national team will continue to be one of the best in the world".

"We don't know for sure how grave this injury really is".

The California congresswoman told people to "push back on them", but her remarks drew scorn from Republicans and Democrats alike. Donnelly said he had a "good conversation" with Trump and "will thoroughly review the record and qualifications" of the nominee.

Portugal started their Russian Federation campaign strongly with a 3-3 tie over Spain and a 1-0 win over Morocco, but their recent fixture against Iran - which ended 1-1 - was bathed in controversy during the dying seconds as the opposing team was awarded a penalty through VAR. Portugal collected their heads and were back in the game but Uruguay's defence stood tall.

"Now is not the time to talk about the future of players and coaches", Ronaldo said.

"I have to repeat it time and time again", Santos said. With that, dreams of a quarter-final between the two greatest players were shattered. He opened the scoring after just seven minutes in Sochi heading home from a Luis Suarez freekick and, after Pepe headed Portugal level shortly after the restart, Cavani curled in a 62nd-minute victor.

Ronaldo reached the semi-finals with Portugal in his first World Cup in Germany, but has never made it past the last 16 since then.

"I think there is often a mistaken assumption that possession leads to goal-scoring opportunities", said the former coach of Cagliari and AC Milan.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos knew the question about Portugal's dependence on Ronaldo was coming, and said he even won a coffee because of it after making a bet with the team's press officer ahead of Friday's news conference. However, it took only seven minutes for Cavani to put his side back in front, courtesy of a superb curling shot which beat Rui Patricio in the Portgual goal.

There is always competition to earn a place in the team, but things are easier "when they have given you the rules and everything is done based on our sacred word. which is respect".

This was a big win for Uruguay, but it was also an important victory for South America considering the European dominance of this World Cup so far.

Cavani sent the ball across the field to Suarez, who aggressively dribbled to the top corner of the penalty area.

"We have a very strong team in terms of mindset", Tabarez said.
