Uruguay's Cavani has swollen calf, not tear, as France loom

Factbox - Uruguay v Portugal World Cup: Portugal ousted by a Uruguay, superior version of themselves

"We have to take it a day at a time and see how he feels".

Ronaldo's 24-year-old model girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez attended the Round of 16 game, where Portugal lost to Uruguay 1-2 and were ousted from the World Cup. If they still would be in their national teams, they would be the top oldest players in the world cup history, a record now being held by Egypt's goalkeeper Essam El Hadary. He can help the younger players with his knowledge. What emerged as well was a seemingly popular view that Messi couldn't deliver on the worldwide stage. Many people, however, didn't want to count out Portugal due to the mere presence of Ronaldo.

While Ronaldo will be bitterly disappointed to be heading home earlier than planned from Russian Federation, he at least has the consolation of having won his country's first ever European Championship, two years ago in France.

While impressive to watch, Ronaldo's game-tying hat trick also broke multiple records.

Man of the match Mbappe then became the first teenager to score two goals in a World Cup match since Edson Arantes dos Nascimento "Pele" in 1958.

"We have to congratulate Uruguay because they scored twice", he said.

"I am sure that Portugal will continue to be one of the best teams in the world". It seems like Portugal are more balanced and tighter squad than Argentina. "I don't know right now exactly because I have not spoken to the medical team". Despite all this it is simply harsh to say that Messi had a bad tournament. I just felt something at one point and couldn't recover.

The 41-year-old retired from top-flight football in 2011, after scoring 291 goals in 438 club career games and 62 global goals for Brazil.

Argentina continued to fight over the last 20 minutes but Aguero's header from Messi's cross in stoppage time was too little, too late. However, things have come so close to being different. They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed. If Gonzalo Higuain finished just one of the key chances he had in each of these finals then we would be talking about Messi's incredible global dominance.

Messi was mostly a forlorn figure up front in the 2018 campaign, watching the mess at the back as Argentina let in four goals against France, three against Croatia, and a goal apiece against Nigeria and Iceland. They wouldn't have been in Russian Federation in the first place if it wasn't for his genius performance against Ecuador.

"Everybody can see that in this World Cup there are no easy games", Alves said.

Their willingness to put in the work off the ball makes it easy for coach Oscar Tabarez to play them together, and the formidable duo will pose a threat to any opposition.
