World Cup: Quarterfinal matches begin Friday

Hugo Lloris, conversely, was in inspired form, pulling off a stunning save to deny Martin Caceres just minutes after Raphael Varane had given France a first-half lead.

Heading into the match, Uruguay had been unbeaten in 2018 and Muslera had the best save percentage of any goalkeeper at the tournament who had played more than one match. But it has undergone a revival in the last 12 years under the 71-year-old Tabarez, a former elementary school teacher.

France went on to reach the World Cup final the last two times they advanced to the semifinals.
