Luis Suarez says Uruguay can control Kylian Mbappe

Factbox - Uruguay v Portugal

Left of the 2018 world Cup after the defeat against Uruguay in 1/8 finals of the tournament, the striker Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo said that he was surprised by the organization of the world Cup in Russian Federation, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to ukrnews24.net. The PSG hitman hit home with a bullet header and then a stunning, swerving effort on the break to see his side through to the quarter-finals.

It was the latest in a series of arguments about football and the relative merits of the world's two best players.

Portugal were defeated 2-1 by Uruguay on Saturday, with Edinson Cavani netting two fantastic goals either side of Pepe's equaliser at the Fisht Olympic Stadium.

Portugal had more than 60 percent of possession, which they found hard to translate into a goal.

Seven minutes later Rodrigo Bentancur dribbled to the box and delivered a well-weighted pass to Cavani, who lashed the ball into the far corner.

Streetwise and tough yet with a razor-sharp edge, Uruguay have moved serenely into the World Cup quarter-finals, ignoring the chaos that has swamped former winners Argentina and Spain. If he has not recovered in time, he could replaced by Cristhian Stuani, who has played 42 times for Uruguay, just 16 fewer than Griezmann has appeared for France.

Uruguay ace Luis Suarez hopes that other players will step up if strike partner Edinson Cavani is ruled out of the match with France through injury. "It's going to be a great game to play in and a really emotional experience too".

The Paris Saint-Germain striker damaged his hamstring in Nizhny Novgorod and has been unable to train with his teammates in the three days since pulling up.

Portugal manager Fernando Santos was hopeful that Ronaldo will continue to represent his country for some time yet, with Portugal's next challenge to defend the European Championship they won in France two years ago.

Uruguay have shown in Russian Federation they are extremely hard to beat yet sometimes underwhelming - factors you could have predicted from them before the World Cup. "I don't know right now exactly because I have not spoken to the medical team".

Comments on Georgina's Instagram posts saw comments not just from Uruguay fans, but also from angry Iranian fans, who posted comments with the country's flag, to vent ire after Iran lost to Portugal in the group stage.

Now I present to you my breakdown of each game along with my most likely wrong predictions.
