  • Suarez: club rivalry pushed aside vs Ronaldo at World Cup

Uruguay star Edinson Cavani looks unlikely to feature for his country in their quarter final encounter with France following an injury he picked up during the side's win over Portugal.

Today's survey revealed that striker edema, but without breaking muscle tissue.

Griezmann praised the collective strength of France during the Argentina game.

At 33, many feel we have seen the last of Ronaldo the World Cup, although the player himself shunned questions on the issue after the defeat against Uruguay.

The goal temporarily put Portugal and Uruguay on the same starting line, until seven minutes later Rodrigo Bentancur dribbled to the box and delivered a well-weighted pass to Cavani, who lashed the ball into the far corner.

Ronaldo finished his World Cup campaign with four goals, one adrift of England's Harry Kane who leads the standings with five.

Uruguay, world champions in 1930 and 1950, will play France, who beat Argentina 4-3 earlier in the day, in Nizhny Novgorod on July 6.

Ronaldo netted a hat-trick in their opening game of the group against Spain to become the first oldest player to score a hat-trick in the world cup history.

Uruguay are the only team in the competition yet to concede a goal after their three group games.

"It's a shame if we don't (see Messi and Ronaldo at the next World Cup)". He, along with his fellow Luis Suarez, strategized well against Portugal and were able t pull them down.

Cavani injured is a national disaster.' Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez confirmed on Saturday night that Cavani was injured. "There is no better place than a World Cup". "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

The two share similar traits as players: they are fiercely competitive, possess a work-rate as monstrous as their goal-scoring records and are capable of producing moments of beauty with the ball. It's a tough match, like the ones we've been having, and we'll do our job, trying to be compact, defending all together.
