Yet, pushing on through, defying expectations, Russian results, more miracles or just sheer effort at the Beautiful Game, two teams will meet on July 15 for the final and there will be only World Cup victor.

Four France goals ended Lionel Messi's fourth World Cup on Saturday and may have brought down the curtain on an global career seemingly destined to end in disappointment. Sergio Aguero (90' +3), Angel Di Maria (41') and Gabriel Mercado (48') planted the ball in the net for Argentina. "Right now, we are all concerned, but we don't know how serious the injury is".

Lilian Thuram was very impressed by the spectacular goal scored by France's Benjamin Pavard against Argentina.

The Barcelona striker has two goals in the tournament so far, with one coming against Saudi Arabia and the other against Russian Federation.

While Ronaldo ran down blind alleys and bewildered only himself with his stepovers against Uruguay, Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez were combining their incredible work rates with understanding and brilliant technical quality to great effect.

Portugal was eliminated out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a 1-2 defeat.

That was the first goal Uruguay had conceded in the tournament but it took Cavani only seven minutes to put them back ahead at the packed Fisht Stadium.

The strength Gallardo has in his coaching acumen is that he is able to carve relationships with players and can connect with them in a way that brings out the best with those he handles.

"I think there is often a mistaken assumption that possession leads to scoring opportunities", Uruguay's long-serving coach Oscar Tabarez told reporters.

"Cristiano still has a lot to give to football, and I hope he will stay to help the young players grow and develop", he said on Saturday.

"We don't need to describe him. But you always want to win, and we lost, so well done to Uruguay for making it through".

"We came to the cinema more than the pitch, because we came to see the chronicle of an announced death".
