Uruguay's Luis Suarez controls the ball during the group A match between Uruguay and Russia at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Samara Arena in Samara, Russia, Monday, June 25, 2018. "In the World Cup, it is a different mentality", he said.

Surprisingly, the team that have received the fewest yellow cards in Russian Federation - just one - are Uruguay, known in the past to resort to the dark arts to win. The team looked shaky at the back and lacked ideas going forward.

"We have a team with many young players and of course we all want him there with us".

This contrasts quite heavily with the established view of Ronaldo and Portugal.

Ronaldo helped Portugal win its first major trophy two years ago at the European Championship. In Russia, the same narrative persisted with Ronaldo's hat-trick in the thriller against Spain and the victor against Morocco. The knockout stages of the World Cup start on Saturday with teams looking to book their places in the quarterfinals. Firstly, the obvious thing that still needs pointing out is that football is a team sport. With these two, Uruguay has kept their opponents to only one goal.

They are not the prettiest side, but Sweden are extremely effective and happy to play the role of underdog, having seen off the Netherlands and Italy in qualifying and Germany in the group stages. "Uruguay have shown we depend on collective work on the pitch". Despite all this it is simply harsh to say that Messi had a bad tournament.

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

Ronaldo will be a 37-year-old at the beginning of the Quatar World Cup 2022, and there are speculations if Russian Federation will be his last World Cup stop. "They have two exceptional strikers, Griezmann and Mbappe - they're very fast indeed", Tabarez admitted to the press (via Sports Mole).

"This is football. Whoever scores more goals wins", Ronaldo said.

So far in Russian Federation, it seems they have aged well.

The Real Madrid star was excellently marshalled by Atletico Madrid pair Diego Godin and Jimenez.

The Uruguay striker scored twice in the last-16 win but was subbed off with 16 minutes to go after falling down holding his leg.

"The future? It's not the time to talk about the future in terms of players, coach..."

Portugal, who reached World Cup semi-finals back in 1966 on the back on Eusebio's nine goals, failed to get the best out of current talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.
