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

"It's very sad for Portugal though". "We know it's a special game for us, I don't know for him".

As we prefaced, our experts were pretty split on this one - six experts pick up the 10 points while four start the day empty-handed.

Cavani struck in the seventh minute of Saturday's last-16 tie in Sochi to put Uruguay in control, but Portugal hit back after the interval when Pepe headed home Raphael Guerreiro's cross. But Uruguay regained the lead seven minutes later when Rodrigo Bentancur found Cavani and he curled a brilliant first-time shot past Rui Patricio from the edge of the penalty area. Portugal had 61 percent of the possession, yet its only goal came off a set piece. They pressured hard from the beginning but it was Uruguay scored first.

"Cristiano still has a lot to give to football", Santos said. "We tried our best and we played a good game I think", he said.

Portugal, after their impressive performances in four matches, will go home, and Real Madrid forward Ronaldo's fourth World Cup journey finished earlier than expected.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo helps injured Uruguay forward Edison Cavani off the field in their last 16 clash. With his 85th global goal, he surpassed the mark held by Hungary legend Ferenc Puskas.

"There was a cross to the left, then a cross to the right - there is no scheme against that. There is no better place than a World Cup".

But since then he has scored in each of his country's games, against Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation, leaving him just one goal away from equalling Oscar Miguez's Uruguayan record tally of eight at World Cups.

"This is football. Whoever scores more goals wins", Ronaldo said. A World Cup title is the only thing missing from his collection of accolade. To my mind, Portugal played better than Uruguay. He may have lost the match but managed to win love and respect of everyone. "We are just blessed to have him".

However, Ronaldo, who will be 37 by the time of the next World Cup, would not be drawn on whether he planned to extend his worldwide career.

"It's time to say goodbye and for the younger players to step in", said Javier Mascherano, who at 34 said he was retiring from the national team. "He is excellent", Figo once commented.

Before Figo's time Portural had never won the European Championships.

"Ronaldo is a great player but I am confident with our defence and how the team are doing".
