Suarez - One man doesn’t make a team

France vs Argentina to kick-off FIFA World Cup 2018 Round of 16 check complete schedule

When Portugal's football legend Luis Figo captained his national team to the semi-final of the 2006 World Cup, Ronaldo scored his first World Cup goal.

Portugal have not lost a competitive match with Ronaldo in the side since the 2014 World Cup, although they were beaten on penalties by Chile at last year's Confederations Cup.

"About Cavani, we don't know, we're just waiting for a few days", Suarez said. The team looked shaky at the back and lacked ideas going forward.

"This is a World Cup and Edi's form is very important, but there are players who can do it in the same way, and we hope even better than him". What emerged as well was a seemingly popular view that Messi couldn't deliver on the global stage.

In Sochi, Uruguay tackle European champions Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo, four goals, chasing the tournament Golden Boot award. In Russia, the same narrative persisted with Ronaldo's hat-trick in the thriller against Spain and the victor against Morocco.

Brazil star Neymar put another feather in his cap during his country's World Cup last-16 encounter against Mexico.

Les Bleus finally showed what they're capable of with a fantastic attacking display in a 4-3 last-16 defeat of Argentina.

Uruguay and France will meet in the quarterfinals on Friday. In the single game against Portugal they saw five more.

"El Maestro" Tabarez has been in charge of Uruguay for 12 years and has not only forged a strong team which rarely fail to deliver on the big stage, but also a side with an enormous work ethic and huge experience. Despite all this it is simply harsh to say that Messi had a bad tournament.

But in this topsy-turvy World Cup, one thing for Uruguay has notably changed. Uruguay ousted Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo with a 2-1 win. The team's youngest players were Guedes and defender Ruben Dias, both at 21.

If it still needs to be said, statements of Tesla's expectations should be taken with a fairly hefty serving of salt. At the same time , Musk issued a voluntary recall of 123,000 Model S Teslas because of faulty power steering .

Ronaldo will be a 37-year-old at the beginning of the Quatar World Cup 2022, and there are speculations if Russian Federation will be his last World Cup stop. Obviously I'm very happy for (Cavani's) goals and that they helped us win.

In what is the match of the tournament thus far, Didier Deschamps' 1998 champions fought back from 2-1 down to book a quarter final slot with Uruguay.

"He's always the best player in the world", he said. They wouldn't have been in Russian Federation in the first place if it wasn't for his genius performance against Ecuador.

However, Ronaldo couldn't score when it really mattered.

Cavani has played 105 times for his country.

Japan advances on yellow cards despite losing at World Cup
As a result, no African team advanced from the first round of the World Cup for the first time since 1982. "It worked against us". In the first half, Yoshinori Muto's drive forced Lukasz Fabianski to send off, before the goalkeeper denied Gotoku Sakai effort.

Despite being Portugal's and Europe's all-time leading global scorer, Ronaldo remains without a knockout stage goal at the World Cup in his career, and will be 37 by the time the 2022 tournament rolls around.
