World loses it over Ronaldo's shorts

In other words, it won't be Suarez vs. Ronaldo when Uruguay and Portugal meet in the World Cup round of 16 on Saturday night, it'll be team against team.

The Argentina fans were now in full voice but their joy did not last long before France restored parity after 57 minutes, Pavard pouncing on an over-cooked cross some 20 metres out and lashing it on the half-volley into the net.

After getting played into space at the edge of the area by Rodrigo Bentancur, Cavani delivered a curling drive from just inside the area that bent around Rui Patricio and into the net, scoring what ultimately proved the victor for the South American side.

Portugal pressed in search of a second equaliser but Bernardo Silva missed their best chance to level, screwing off-target when faced with an open goal after Fernando Muslera dropped a cross into his path.

Oscar Tabarez's men will now face France for a place in the semi-finals.

After almost five and a half hours of football, it was the first goal Uruguay had let in at this World Cup - indeed it was the first they had conceded in 2018. That's the first goal allowed all tournament for Uruguay. "I just felt this little pain and I couldn't go on". Their style may not be pretty but it is most certainly effective.

For Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo it is heart-break, but ultimately they weren't good enough over the course of four games.

Uruguay primed to quell Ronaldo threat
Euro 2016 winners Portugal take on 2010 World Cup fourth-placed side Uruguay in the last 16 of the tournament on Saturday. Tabarez has led Uruguay for 12 years, restoring the small South American nation as a footballing power once again.

Germany beat Sweden in final seconds
Sweden's Ola Toivonen, left, scored the game's opening goal , lobbing the ball over German keeper Manuel Neuer in the 32nd minute. However, Mexico truly dominated for stretches, and looked every bit as good as the team that knocked off Germany .

Egyptian coach dies after Saudi scores in World Cup match
Whether Salah ever plays for Egypt again will now be under consideration as a result of the events in Chechnya during the tournament.

It was thanks to his header that Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 in their decisive group game in Brazil to reach the last 16 of the last World Cup and even though they fell to Colombia in the next round, the memory of the goal lives on. Uruguay, however, soon demonstrated their hunger to win, with Cavani's one-touch curler.

It was clear that the Uruguayan centre-forward wasn't just wasting time as he motioned to the bench that it was not simply a knock that he could shake off. Uruguay's deadly duo will be a real problem for Didier Deschamp's defence. Subs: Sanchez 5, Rodriguez 5, Stuani 5.

Here is the possible lineups for Portugal.Rui Patricio, Cedric, Pepe, Jose Fonte, Raphael Guerreiro, William, Adrien Silva, Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Mario, Goncalo Guedes, Cristiano Ronaldo.

With two fantastic crosses, Cavani and Suarez had taken out the entire Portuguese defence to score Uruguay's second-fastest goal ever scored in the World Cup.

With or without Cavani, though, Uruguay will make it incredibly tough for France and should not be written off.

It was Edinson Cavani who instead took the spotlight.
