Cristiano Ronaldo: Now is not the time to talk about the future

Cristiano Ronaldo: Now is not the time to talk about the future

Oscar Tabarez's well chiselled South Americans were quicker out of the blocks and caught Portugal trousers down when Cavani powered home a textbook header following an exchange of raking passes with strike partner Luis Suarez. But the header from the Manchester City midfielder was off-target.

"In football, there are no moral victories and I would have preferred to play worse and win the match".

Streetwise and tough yet with a razor-sharp edge, Uruguay have moved serenely into the World Cup quarter-finals, side-stepping the chaos that has swamped former winners Argentina, Germany and Spain. "We'll have to wait day by day to see how he feels".

"We have received so many messages from home and we know how the people are living this". They were stunted by a committed Iceland team in the opening fixture, utterly outmatched by Croatia and despite an improved performance in the win against Nigeria there was a huge slice of luck in their progression to the knockout stages. "We've got some great players and a tremendous squad, a young group of players with real ambition to go out and succeed", he said.

His best performance was against Spain; three goals and an nearly ideal game, with 94 percent pass completion.

Germany Fails To Advance Out Of Group Stage For First Time
Sweden won the group after thrashing Mexico 3-0 to also deny South Korea a spot in the knockout stages. Germany are four-time Football World Cup champions and have always cleared the group stage hurdle.

While Cavani's fitness doubt is a concern for Uruguay, France defender Adil Rami said: "We need to stop thinking that Cavani will play against us". A World Cup title is the only thing missing from his collection of accolade.

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. If he has not recovered in time, he could replaced by Cristhian Stuani, who has played 42 times for Uruguay, just 16 fewer times than Griezmann has appeared for France.

The South Americans have conceded just one goal - the joint lowest in the tournament with Brazil - in four straight wins on their way to the showdown in Nizhny Novgorod. "But we have a very strong team in terms of our mindset". A study will be done and we'll see what can be done.

"There is another tournament starting in September and of course we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the younger players grow", Santos said. "They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed", Tabarez admitted to the press (via Sports Mole). It will be very hard for us. But we will try our best and look to impose our way of playing on them, using our strengths.
