Emotional Ronaldo thanks Portugal fans amid future speculation

Messi celebrates after scoring Argentina's first goal against Nigeria

Cristiano Ronaldo was up next as he looked to win the first World Cup for Portugal.

The Portugal national soccer team was forced to pack its bags and leave the 2018 FIFA World Cup for good after Uruguay outmaneuvered it in a stunning 2-1 victory on Saturday. "In the second we were better, but we didn't make it", he explained. I can't give a very in-depth analysis because I was getting dressed while their game was on and in the last 15 minutes I was giving my team-talk.

The proven marksman Ronaldo was understandably given no space by Uruguay's defence, and he hardly got a touch in the opposition box in the first half. "The team didn't win because Uruguay scored twice".

It was the 12th goal that Suarez has assisted for Cavani.

"Uruguay scored two goals and we only scored one". His club future remains unclear following his comments immediately after the Champions League final although there's a growing sense that he will not be leaving the Bernabeu any time soon.

Parity was short-lived, though, as Uruguay reclaimed the lead just seven minutes later. Uruguay 1, Portugal 1.

While Honda was dignified in defeat, Japan are entitled to feel they deserved better after a superbly disciplined performance. The coach made the changes because he wanted more power in the middle and we managed to bring that.

"We have a fantastic group, young and with a lot of ambition and for that reason I think the team will remain strong", he said.

Portugal had 61 percent of the possession and four times as many shots at goal as the Uruguyans but Tabarez dismissed possession as a mere statistic and said what mattered was creating and converting chances.

Cavani received the ball from Rodrigo Betancur and sprayed a wonderful 40-yard diagonal pass to Luis Suarez. The Barcelona striker cut in and curled back, finding Cavani who headed the ball into the top right. "Uruguay had never scored like that".

While Uruguay is advancing, it now must be concerned with the status of Cavani after he limped off the field and immediately called for a substitute. After the elimination of Argentina and Portugal, Messi and Ronaldo will have to watch the final from their homes.

"We have known each other for a long time and have played together for over 10 years in the national team", Suarez said of Cavani. The Uruguayans had gone 598 minutes since November 2017 without allowing a goal.

Lionel Messi is the only player to have delivered an assist in each of the past four World Cups. Team good fought. We need to glorify what he did Portugal. "We have assessed their weaknesses and their strengths, and we have prepared".
