FPJ's dream XI predictions for Uruguay vs Portugal

01 July, 2018, 00:27 | Author: Angelina Schmidt

Uruguay, going by their form in the group stages, will have the edge over Portugal.

At 35 years and 124 days, Pepe became Portugal's oldest ever goal scorer in a major tournament match (World Cup and European Championships).

Edinson Cavani's double sent Uruguay into the last eight of the Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation.

In the second half, Portugal was able to answer with a corner kick header from Pepe to tie things up and give Uruguay their first goal against since November 2017.

Drogba: African teams are going backwards
It's a sense of continental solidarity or if you can't beat them, join them. Both teams amassed four points and a goal aggregate of 4-4.

Tabarez, who is in his 14th year as Uruguay manager, albeit across two spells, is understandably planning that his side will have to work as a team to contain the five-time Ballon D'Or victor.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have always been linked as great rivals for the crown of greatest ever, but the 2018 World Cup will see them exit with a similar mark on their record.

Portugal's shrewd tactician Fernando Santos would not be too concerned about their draws against Spain and Iran en route to the Round of 16 as he is known to be happy with the tag of ugly ducklings. But there was no late video review to benefit Portugal as Ronaldo's fourth World Cup came to an uneventful end. They carry a huge burden on their shoulders, yet each scored crucial goals in the Group stage.

Ronaldo was involved somewhat in Portugal's goal, even if he didn't come close to getting a touch on the cross.

Neither team is a lock to win its next game, of course, but it's easy to see why England won't be that disheartened by its loss. How both sides approach the match will be a good indicator of their respective philosophies and team culture.

Uruguay, superbly protected by the meticulous Diego Godin, hadn't conceded a goal in any of their last six matches but were finally breached 10 minutes after the re-start. Uruguay looking much more comfortable than the Portuguese.

Since Uruguay and Portugal have not faced each other since a friendly match in 1972, Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't had the chance to take on Suarez and Cavani together, but he has done it separately and scored more than both. "We're there to win".

FIFA World Cup 2018 Uruguay v/s Portugal football match in India will be broadcast on Sony Network. I've told them they need to be calm.
