The World Cup is now without the two best players in the world.

Soccer Football - World Cup - Round of 16 - Uruguay vs Portugal - Fisht Stadium, Sochi, Russia - June 30, 2018 Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo looks dejected as he walks off the pitch after the match.

"Now it's not the time to talk about the future", Ronaldo said after Portugal's 2-1 loss to Uruguay at the World Cup.

"Your support was and always will be fundamental to us", Ronaldo wrote on Instagram alongside the Portuguese flag.

Ronaldo helped Portugal win its first major trophy two years ago at the European Championship.

Ronaldo could not make the difference after Suarez and Cavani combined brilliantly for Uruguay's seventh-minute opener on Russia's Black Sea coast.

"In my opinion, we were better than Uruguay".

"The truth is, it was really exciting", Cavani said.

"We have to be strong in defence and we have great qualities and skills, especially in our defensive line". This is for the first time Uruguay concede a goal in an worldwide match this year.

Democrats only need one Republican to side with them in blocking such a nominee and abortion-rights leaning Collins could help. The four that have been one a smaller shortlist than the one Trump used to select Neil Gorsuch to the apex court earlier.


Pepe's goal was the first time the South Americans' defence had been breached in this tournament, but they stood firm after that and are beginning to look like genuine contenders moving into the latter stages in Russian Federation. The Barcelona striker cut in and curled back, finding Cavani who headed the ball into the top right. "Even if he scores three goals, he has a team working for him".

Ronaldo, now 33 and still playing some of the best soccer of his career, failed to provide the spark Portugal needed against Uruguay.

Portugal had chances in the second half, including a frantic final few minutes of stoppage time with claims of a possible handball in the penalty area from a late corner kick.

"Certainly, yes, Cristiano still has a lot to give to football", Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.

Uruguay, world champions in 1930 and 1950, will play France, who beat Argentina 4-3 earlier in the day, in Nizhny Novgorod on July 6.

"Their central defenders play for Atletico Madrid, who won the Europa League".

Portugal dominated possession but their attack did not have enough bite to break through the Uruguay defence twice, leaving their captain Cristiano Ronaldo a frustrated figure throughout the match. "We prepared for this".

Dynamic duo Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani both got on the scoresheet and we've all seen how destructive both can be when they hit form.
