Suarez: Uruguay can cope without injured Cavani

Uruguay will nearly certainly be without their striker Edison Cavani for their World Cup quarterfinal against France in Nizhny Novgorod on Friday as he struggles to recover from a calf injury. "In the World Cup, it is a different mentality", he said.

Increasingly, Suarez vented his frustration with Argentinian referee Nestor Pitana, who, coincidentally, was the official in charge of France's quarter-final 2014 defeat. But the ball hit the keeper on the palms, bounced off and looped over his head and into the net.

This is Russia's best World Cup run since the break-up of the Soviet Union.

Belgium is scoring nearly a goal a game more than any other team in the tournament, with 12 in four matches.

Next up the grizzly, experienced World Cup campaigners take on a young France - the exciting Kylian Mbappe, and Gimenez and Godin's Atletico teammate Antoine Griezmann - on Friday, bidding for a place in the semi-finals.

The opening goal was scored by defender Raphael Varane on the 40th minute.

Massive Protests In Poland Over Judicial Law
Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said the law was binding and "for the time being our stance is that we are right". The law is forcing the chief justice and as many as one-third of the court's sitting judges to step down.


Once the emotions settle, Uruguay have some serious work to groom a new generation, given mainstays like captain Diego Godin and strikers Cavani and Suarez are now all in their early 30s. "It's a nation and people that I love and I have many friends there".

Griezmann may not be connected to Uruguay through his immediate family, but all throughout his footballing career, he's had support from a number of Uruguayan coaches and players.

Griezmann likes the traditional South American drink mate, he speaks Spanish like someone from Uruguay and he's been pictured wearing the team's jersey.

"As much as he says he's half Uruguayan, he's French", the Barcelona forward said on Tuesday.

Uruguay are out of the World Cup after losing to France.

They didn't give any indication about his chances to face France at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Friday, saying only that they are "monitoring his progress". Suarez is nursing a knock he picked up in training on Monday, although he was able to finish the session Boss Oscar Tabarez is already facing the prospect of being without his other star striker, Edinson Cavani.
