FIFA WC 2018: Uruguay eliminates Portugal

Meanwhile, social networks continue to debate the outcome of the match of 1/8 final of the world Cup between Uruguay and Portugal, which ended with the score 2:1 in favor of the South American team. Portugal's only goal came early in the second half by Pepe (55').

It set up a knockout stage meeting with two-time champions Uruguay, who topped Group A with maximum points ahead of hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Ronaldo will be almost 38 by the time the next World Cup comes around in Qatar in 2022.

Portugal pressed in search of a second equaliser but Bernardo Silva missed their best chance to level, screwing off-target when faced with an open goal after Fernando Muslera dropped a cross into his path.

"It's not the time to talk about the future when it comes to the players and coach", the Portugal captain said.

Ronaldo's great start in Russian Federation allowed him to surpass the combined total of three goals he had scored in his previous three World Cups. Argentina are looking to put their tricky World Cup start behind them against 1998 winners France in the last 16.

"The whole team sacrificed so we could get the win", Suarez said.

Ronaldo's hat-trick in a thrilling 3-3 opening draw against Spain helped light the competition up, but after that he netted just one goal, in the side's 1-0 victory over Morocco. "We know it's a special game for us, I don't know for him".

Nailing the World Cup with your country's limited team will always be a greater achievement than winning everything in club football with expensive squads comprising world's best players picked from different countries.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker suffered a hamstring injury in the last-16 win over Portugal and was the only player not to take part in team training in Nizhny Novgorod on Tuesday. But we will try our best and look to impose our way of playing on them, using our strengths. "Cristiano still has a lot to give to football and I hope he will stay to help the young players grow and develop", he said.

Edinson will be able to play in the quarterfinals of the 2018 world Cup with France on Friday, July 6, is not specified.
