  • Luis Suarez says his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo is just at club level

In other words, it won't be Suarez vs. Ronaldo when Uruguay and Portugal meet in the World Cup round of 16 on Saturday night, it'll be team against team.

Receiving the ball on the left, Suarez glanced up just briefly, and saw Cavani lurking outside the box before whipping in a ferocious cross to the back post for his team-mate turn home.

But Uruguay responded nearly instantly.

"The future? It's not the time to talk about the future in terms of players, coach".

But their response to that was magnificent as they went quickly retook the lead, Rodrigo Bentancur teeing up Cavani for a magnificent first-time curling strike into the far corner on his right foot.

Goalkeeper Fernando Muslera did nearly gift them another equaliser, dropping a high ball at the feet of Bernardo Silva, but the Manchester City man could only volley over. They are the only side yet to concede a goal in the World Cup but they have not been seriously tested having played two minnows in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and a second-string Russian team in their final group game.

Bernado Silva missed a golden chance to pull Portugal level as he shot over the cross-bar after Gurrero cross which went at the goal was poorly dealt by Muslera. As the captain of Portugal I know how hard we have worked and we must be proud of the team.

Like Messi, Ronaldo has never scored in a knockout round match at the World Cup.

What's the ceiling for Uruguay?

But today, it was Edinson Cavani who scored twice to earn victory for the Uruguayans.

While Real Madrid's Ronaldo will also be bitterly disappointed to be heading home earlier than planned from Russian Federation, he at least has the consolation of having won his country's first ever European Championship, two years ago in France.

"The match just ended".

That "look" at an opponent before challenging for an aerial ball wins him countless fouls and loose balls, allowing Uruguay to get their shape back as they come under the inevitable pressure their style permits.

After winning a gold medal with Argentina in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, many expected the little forward to take his country to glory in a World Cup or at least the Copa America.
