"This is a World Cup, and of course we're all defending and we're all working for our national teams, and that's the essential aspect".

The European champions equalized when Pepe headed home following a short corner, but Uruguay swept up the field and carved them open once more, with Cavani firing home his second and Portugal unable to respond.

Portugal had 61 percent of the possession and four times as many shots at goal as the Uruguayans, but Tabarez dismissed possession as a mere statistic and said what mattered was creating and converting chances.

In today's second Group of 16 match, Uruguay vs Portugal, will be played at Fisht Stadium on Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 11:30 PM (IST).

Defenders: Martin Caceres (Lazio), Sebastian Coates (Sporting), Jose Maria Gimenez (Atletico Madrid), Diego Godin (Atletico Madrid), Maximiliano Pereira (Porto), Gaston Silva (Independiente), Guillermo Varela (Penarol).
