Messi and Ronaldo face tough challenges

World Cup 2018 Portugal Uruguay More Than Cristiano Ronaldo v Luis Suarez Says Bruno Alves

World Cup 2018 Portugal Uruguay More Than Cristiano Ronaldo v Luis Suarez Says Bruno Alves

Portugal seemed like one of the teams that could have won the entire 2018 World Cup, but they're not going to watch the rest of the tournament from home. "Ronaldo is very good people".

Messi, a phenomenon when he was only 18, was instrumental in Argentina winning the 2005 World Youth Championship, as the U-20 World Cup was then called.

While they have set goal records tumbling both in Europe and Spain year after year, amazingly neither has ever been able to find the net in a World Cup knockout match in a combined 14 games.

"I have not made a proper analysis of Argentina's style yet". I'm sad, I'm frustrated - I think that's quite normal.

Edinson Cavani's time to be the star - whether for club or country - has been a long time coming and finally arrived on Saturday, as his two goals propelled Uruguay past Portugal and into the quarterfinals, for the second time in three tournaments, at the 2018 World Cup. "I won't decide my future today".

Cavani switched play with a long cross to Luis Suarez and continued his run to head home a pinpoint deep cross from his attacking partner and give Uruguay a seventh-minute lead. "It's not a fair result, we did enough for another result", Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker opened the scoring after just seven minutes in Sochi and, after Pepe headed Portugal level early in the second half, Cavani curled in a 62nd-minute victor.

Ronaldo finishes his fourth World Cup campaign with four goals, while Messi notched just the one in what was also his fourth, scoring the opener in Argentina's huge group stage win over Nigeria in Saint Petersburg. "We have a young and ambitious squad", he said.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez believes there is a difference between his rivalry with Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to worldwide and club football. "Uruguay scored with their first shot on our goal". Let us know in the comments section below. Uruguay will play France in the last eight in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday.
