2018 FIFA World Cup Round of 16: Uruguay Vs Portugal
Uruguay have defended as well as they have throughout 2018 and go into the break with the lead courtesy of Cavani’s superb header in the seventh minute where he leaped at the far post to meet Luis Suarez’s perfect cross.
This was the 12th Uruguay goal that Luis Suarez has assisted for Edinson Cavani.
Chances have been few and far for the Portuguese. Christian Ronaldo popularly known as CR7 has largely been kept quiet and the striker Guedes has barely had a kick.
Uruguay conceded their first goal in this year’s World Cup today with a header from Pepe in the 55″ minutes to put Portugal 1 – 1 draw.
At 62″ minutes, Uruguay restored their leads as Carvani curls in a superb cross from Bentacur to make the game 2goals to 1.
