Cavani fires Uruguay into last eight as Ronaldo dream ends
01 July, 2018, 15:30
Portugal were level as from a short corner worked to Raphael Guerreiro in the 55th minute as Ronaldo took Godin away.
Ronaldo was involved somewhat in Portugal's goal, even if he didn't come close to getting a touch on the cross.
He was an ever present thorn in Portugal's backline with his height, physicality and technical ability allowing him to pose a threat in a number of different ways, creating a handful for the opposition to deal with. He signalled to Nahitan Nandez not to give him the ball back, gesturing that he was exhausted, but as his marker then took a mental break of his own, Suarez had him fooled, sprinting 40 yards down the flank to show for the return pass.
"We must congratulate Uruguay because they are the national team that are in the quarter-finals", he said post-match.
That was the first goal the twice World Cup champions had conceded in the tournament in Russian Federation, but another moment of brilliance from Cavani put them back ahead seven minutes later at the packed Fisht Stadium overlooking the Black Sea.
Russian Federation 2018 was the 33-year-old's third World Cup and it's unlikely he will be available for Qatar four years time.
With six minutes gone, Bernardo Silva made progress down the other flank and laid the ball off to Ronaldo, who blasted a first-time effort straight at keeper Fernando Muslera.
Ronaldo will be almost 38 by the time the next World Cup comes around in Qatar in 2022.
Uruguay set up perfectly to stop him from being the difference maker that he so often is in matches, especially in big matches such as this.
Ronaldo barely had a sniff of a chance in front of goal and admitted after the game Uruguay were deserved winners.
Cavani and Luis Suarez unlocked the Portuguese defense early with two incredible cross-field passes.
"That was an incredible play", Santos said. Next up for the underdogs is France and if they can snatch the first goal, their defence could see them through to the final four. Martin Caceres will start at right-back while Diego Laxalt could start at left-back.
But with Cavani in such sensational form, it will be huge blow to Uruguay's hopes against France if the former Napoli striker misses out.
