They will next face France, who had earlier knocked out Lionel Messi's Argentina 4-3.

Despite this, it was still Ronaldo's best World Cup.

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

Edinson Cavani struck a brace of brilliant goals in the last-16 tie, either side of a Pepe header, but despite having the lion's share of possession, Portugal could not break down Uruguay's well-drilled defence a second time. "I learned that in Italy when I was working there", said Tabarez, who coached at Cagliari and briefly AC Milan in the 1990s.

The South Americans have conceded just one goal - the joint lowest in the tournament with Brazil - in four straight wins on their way to the showdown in Nizhny Novgorod.

Cristiano Ronaldo has refused to rule out global retirement after Portugal's 2018 FIFA World Cup exit while head coach Fernando Santos has urged him to lead the next generation.

"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. "We have a team with many young players and of course we all want him there with us".

In his fourth World Cup, Ronaldo couldn't hide his frustration late in the match in Sochi, furiously complaining with the referee after a non-call for a foul that could have given Portugal a last chance to equalize.

Cavani has scored 45 goals for Uruguay, 12 of which have been assisted by Suarez. "Portugal had more possession and were often in our half of the pitch, and it would have been better for us to have more of the ball and play the game closer to their goal". But in five days we have a match and we don't have a lot of time for recovery here.

Griezmann said: 'We were united, we defended very well and when we were down (2-1) we saw players with no doubts'.
