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

Portugal coach Fernando Santos once again stressed the importance of his other 22 players around main man Cristiano Ronaldo as they prepare to face Uruguay in the World Cup last 16 on Saturday.

In defeating the reigning European champions, Uruguay reinforced it's a team that's deeper than Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

"The whole team sacrificed so we could get the win", Suarez said.

To be fair, Portugal had four impressive performances in Russian Federation, including the one against Uruguay at the Fisht Stadium.

Against Morocco he achieved 100 percent success; a shot on goal, a goal and three points for Portugal, but, from then on, his effectiveness decreased. During the run of play, Portugal rarely got any clear looks at goal.

The challenge for Uruguay here is that their defense is going to really be tested. They have had a chance to top Group B while leading in the third round of group match against Iran in the first half, but the game ended in a draw ultimately after a controversial penalty goal from the opponent. Of course, attempting to predict the exact score line in a given match is a tricky task, but with Uruguay priced at 9.50 to snatch this match 1-0, that would mean close to a ten-fold return on your investment. The pass to Cavani came from Rodrigo Bentancur, with a Suarez dummy en route to throw the defence off. "I learned that in Italy when I was working there", said Tabarez, who coached at Cagliari and briefly AC Milan in the 1990s. In Italy ball possession isn't sanctified as it is elsewhere. "I felt pain in my calf and could not continue on the field", Cavani had said speaking after the Portugal game.

Uruguay and France will meet in the quarterfinals on Friday. As a captain, I am always proud of this group, the staff, and all the people who worked hard in order to this World Cup to be successful.

Both the former Napoli forward and Suarez missed the first two qualifiers against Bolivia and Colombia back in 2015, but Uruguay won those games comfortably, without conceding a goal. Named as World's best player on five occasions by Federation Internationale de Football Association, he led his country to win the first European Championships trophy in 2016.
