Cavani now has three goals at the World Cup, but limped off in the 70th minute with an apparent injury and had to be replaced.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay v/s Portugal match will take place on Saturday, June 30.

Portugal surely would have preferred that, for while Uruguay continue to produce tough centre-backs, they are by no means completely reliant on them.

Portugal's shrewd tactician Fernando Santos would not be too concerned about their draws against Spain and Iran en route to the Round of 16 as he is known to be happy with the tag of ugly ducklings. Not much time left for Portugal.

But with Cavani in such sensational form, it will be huge blow to Uruguay's hopes against France if the former Napoli striker misses out.

71 - Edinson Cavani down hurt.

Pepe is a former Real Madrid defender and has engaged in a physical battle against Barcelona's Suarez so many times.

65 - Portugal subs now. Pepe heads it in to knot things up, 1-1. The Uruguayans had gone 598 minutes since November 2017 without allowing a goal.

52 - Uruguay's defense is rock solid. Another corner kick from Portugal gets deflected away.

It's been all about Uruguay in this one.

Uruguay held on the rest of the way, despite having just 33 percent of possession.

"It's not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals". Uruguay still leads, 1-0.

22 - Luis Suarez gets a free kick outside the box and almost gets it to go but Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patricio makes a nice save. And up front they boast two of the greatest goal-scorers of their generation in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

6th minute - Ronaldo gives it a rip from outside the box but can't convert it. Lucas Torreira with the delivery, but no shot on-target from it. One more and he will equal 1950 World Cup-winner Oscar Miguez's Uruguayan record of eight goals at the tournament.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best strikers in the world", Tabarez said.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal are heading home.
