Ronaldo can't beat Uruguay on his own, warns Portugal coach
01 July 2018, 12:29 | Ivan Casey
Star player Luis Suarez scored twice as Uruguay defeated Egypt, Saudi Arabia and hosts Russian Federation to set up a Round of 16 tie with reigning European champions, Portugal.
Ahead of the highly-anticipated match, Portugal coach Fernando Santos signalled a subtle warning to his talisman to keep a check on his nerves during the match.
Jose Gimenez could return for Uruguay after he missed the final group game against Russian Federation with a back injury. Clearly, the momentum will be with the South American team and they will be a force to reckon with in the upcoming tie. They have eight shots but just two on goal compared to Uruguay's four shots with two on goal. It has been like that for the whole of 2018. Oscar Tabarez is the longest-serving global manager. "That means he has a very strong relationship with his players". A beauty of a passing display led to an early Edinson Cavanigoal that put them up 1-0.
Against Uruguay, though, we saw the reality of Portugal's overreliance on the Real Madrid forward.
Only one can advance, and Portugal needs to play better than it did in tying Spain and Iran.
"That is an additional factor. We will have to work collectively in order to try and contain him or in order to try and limit the effect he can have".
Clubless William Carvalho could miss the game for Portugal, having been absent from training in the build-up with a minor injury, but Gelson Martins and Raphael Guerreiro are fit to start.
A narrow victory against Morocco was their only win in their first three matches and they will have to improve against Uruguay, who are unlikely to allow spaces behind their defence. They haven't faced each other since July 1972 when they drew 1-1 at Rio de Janeiro's Maracanã stadium. "Even if he scores three goals, he has a team working for him".
There are many possible factors for Europe's grip on the World Cup, but South America's contribution to the world game is at least on a par with Europe, with so many of its players starring for European clubs.
When is the Uruguay v/s Portugal match in FIFA World Cup 2018? He scored a hat trick in the first match against Spain which resulted in a draw by 3-3.
Portugal'sCristiano Ronaldo has scored 85 goals in 153 appearances, although when he plays for his country there is sometimes a feeling that he is both the problem and the solution and many perceive his goal celebrations as arrogant. While Uruguay have looked fairly confident despite wins in slender margins, Portugal scraped past in their final group stage outing against Iran. "I believe that our players are prepared".
