  • Uruguay won all three of their World Cup group games

Edinson Cavani struck a brace of brilliant goals in the last-16 tie, either side of a Pepe header, but despite having the lion's share of possession, Portugal could not break down Uruguay's well-drilled defence a second time.

Ronaldo and Messi are the two players who have defined their generation, breaking record after record and vying for the title of the world's best player year after year.

"The players who helped write the history of football have a part to play", Smith said.

Teenager Kylian Mbappe scored two goals in four minutes to send a youthful France charging into the World Cup quarter-finals with a thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina on Saturday that sent Lionel Messi's team home.

Withthe World Cup's group stage ending yesterday, football fans are now looking forward to the knockout stages beginning Saturday.

Former Argentina footballer Diego Maradona on Friday praised the former Brazil worldwide Ronaldo and said he would have been the best player ever if his career was not hindered by injuries. The Barcelona star is heating up, scoring his first goal of the 2018 World Cup against Nigeria in his squad's last match.

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku is also enjoying a breakout World Cup campaign, answering his critics in resounding style after a disappointing campaign in Brazil four years ago.

Uruguay closed out the game for the win, with the closing stages to what could be Ronaldo's World Cup swansong not showing the best from a man who has scored four goals at Russian Federation 2018 - including a stunning hat-trick in Sochi in the opening game against Spain.

"He is an exceptional player", said Uruguay's veteran coach Oscar Tabarez. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

By that time, Ronaldo's situation at club level will be clearer after he raised doubts about his future with Real Madrid in the wake of their Champions League final win against Liverpool in May. "We have many young players and it is important to have our captain there".
