France vs Argentina to kick-off FIFA World Cup 2018 Round of 16 check complete schedule

Uruguay's Edinson Cavani has always played second fiddle to his more illustrious attacking colleagues at country or club level but the long-haired marksman emerged out of those shadows with his twin strike in the World Cup round of 16 last week.

Get up to a $200 bonus when you bet on Uruguay vs. France! . The quarter-final against France promises to be an unbelievable show.

It was the latest in a series of arguments about football and the relative merits of the world's two best players.

Portugal had more than 60 percent of possession.

Bentancur is not sure how serious the injury will prove to be, but he says Cavani was positive enough during a recovery training session with the team.

Both Uruguay and France booked their places in the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals following a thrilling Saturday of knock-out action.

The lingering question all week for Uruguay will be the health of Cavani after he scored two goals but limped off in the 70th minute with a leg injury.

Ronaldo, second on the scorers' list with four goals, then fired from more than 20 meters away, but the shot was received by Uruguay's goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

"There are players who can fill in for Edinson but anyway, the game will not depend on one single player - we have already shown a lot of progress for a collective point of view". If he has not recovered in time, he could replaced by Cristhian Stuani, who has played 42 times for Uruguay, just 16 fewer times than Griezmann has appeared for France. They have had a chance to top Group B while leading in the third round of group match against Iran in the first half, but the game ended in a draw ultimately after a controversial penalty goal from the opponent.

Paris Saint Germain striker Mbappe illuminated the match with his electric turn of pace and sharp dribbling.

"He knows it is the World Cup".

"I spoke as a friend - obviously that stays between us". "We know it's a special game for us, I don't know for him".

They both won very differently, but now two big contenders will go head-to-head. His goal against Morocco at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium also saw him become Europe's all-time top worldwide scorer on 85 goals, one ahead of Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas.

Tabarez also acknowledged his side will be facing a hard challenge in tackling France in the next round, but insisted his squad have what it takes to go all the way in this World Cup.
