Uruguay 1-0 Portugal live updates

Uruguay Russia World Cup 2018

Ronaldo has pulled off the look when taking free kicks throughout the World Cup in Russian Federation, but whatever benefits he believes showing off his legs give him from set pieces weren't evident in a thrilling match that saw Uruguay advance to the quarter-finals.

Guedes made way for Andre Silva and goal hero Cavani, limping after a knock, was replaced by Cristhian Stuani befoe Guerreiro sent another effort over as the game entered its final quarter of an hour. The European champions bow out of the World Cup with a feeling of unfinished business, having come unstuck against opponents who were more accomplished on the day.

Portugal would have to wait for the second half to equalise - with a goal in the 55th minute from Pepe.

Although a draw against Iran in Portugal's own final group game very almost turned into an early exit from the World Cup, Ronaldo is nevertheless primed to play a pivotal role; for however long Fernando Santos' side remain in Russian Federation.

Ronaldo, though, has already scored four times at this World Cup, including a hat-trick on his last visit here when Portugal drew 3-3 with Spain.

The fearless Uruguay go marching on: The South Americans remain "dark-horses" for World Cup glory, but with four wins out of four, conceding just one goal in the process, they simply can not be overlooked.

Uruguay have yet to concede a goal in Russian Federation, although going forward they have relied mainly on set pieces to score their goals.

Two-time winners Uruguay cruised through Group A, winning all three games, scoring five times and not conceding any, with a 3-0 win over Russian Federation securing top spot.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government released Friday the final list of items that Canada will target beginning July 1. Overall, Ujczo said Canada's retaliatory tariffs have been baked into the White House's calculus for months.

The Argentina fans were now in full voice but their joy did not last long before France restored parity after 57 minutes, Pavard pouncing on an over-cooked cross some 20 metres out and lashing it on the half-volley into the net.

EARLY GOAL It was a five-pass build-up from deep in its own end that culminated in Uruguay's first goal, and the final two passes were flawless.

Cavani received the ball from Rodrigo Betancur and sprayed a wonderful 40-yard diagonal pass to Luis Suarez.

Ronaldo has still never scored a goal in the knockout stages of the World Cup.

Ronaldo had company everywhere he went on the field and Portugal's supporting cast was unable to provide enough help. The Uruguayans had gone 598 minutes since November 2017 without allowing a goal. "Even if he scores three goals in match, you still need to have a team to support him".
