Uruguay ousts Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in 2-1 World Cup game

May JohnsonJul 05, 2018

Defeat for the European champions finished Cristiano Ronaldo's hopes of success in Russian Federation just hours after Lionel Messi and Argentina were knocked out, beaten 4-3 by Les Bleus.

Portugal's forward Cristiano Ronaldo reacts to his teams loss during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup round of 16 football match between Uruguay and Portugal. Fans will now watch with intrigue to see who will follow Messi as the latest adidas Golden Ball victor, having seen the Argentinian scoop the prize four years ago. You can choose which team advances based on your limited knowledge of each team, your favorite player, or even a team's jerseys... or you can listen to a proven model.

So before you lock in your 2018 World Cup bracket on FIFA's official site or anywhere else, you need to see what European football expert David Sumpter has to say.

Expectations were high for both to perform, with Ronaldo arriving off the back of yet another UEFA Champions League win and Messi having starred in Barcelona's La Liga triumph.

"It's easy to win the title in France", Matthaeus said.

The coaching staff of Uruguay's national football team has not yet been informed on the seriousness of Edinson Cavani's injury.

Ronaldo singled out Neymar as a potential victor - noting that he himself won the Federation Internationale de Football Association award after an injury-hit season that peaked with Brazil's World Cup title.

"I give them maybe one or two years more", he said, "then there will come a change for this award".

Edinson Cavani scored two superb goals as Uruguay beat Portugal to set up a World Cup quarter-final meeting with France.

Brazil's Neymar lies on the ground besides referee Gianluca Rocchi during the round of 16 match between Brazil and Mexico at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Samara Arena, in Samara, Russia, Monday, July 2, 2018.
