Sons of Salto Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez drive Uruguay’s campaign

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

"It's time to say goodbye and for the younger players to step in", said Javier Mascherano, who at 34 said he was retiring from the national team.

Suarez and Cavani combined brilliantly for the seventh-minute opener on Russia's Black Sea coast.

"It's not the time to talk about the future when it comes to the players and coach", the Portugal captain said.

After almost five and a half hours of football, it was the first goal Uruguay had let in at this World Cup - indeed it was the first they had conceded in 2018.

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.

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.

If Cavani is unable to recover his replacement will also come from the Spanish Liga Santander with either Cristhian Stuani or Maxi Gomez in line to play.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, Fun With Sizes in a Superhero Sequel
Fans noticed that the surviving characters - Iron Man , Captain America , Black Widow, Hulk and Thor - are also the original members of the superhero team.


The Portugal skipper further said that he is happy with kind of efforts put in by the players and asserted that this team will continue to win in the future.

"We gave our best", Ronaldo said. Named as World's best player on five occasions by Federation Internationale de Football Association, he led his country to win the first European Championships trophy in 2016.

Fernando Santos insists that Cristiano Ronaldo "still has a lot to give", playing down talk that the Real Madrid forward is about to retire from the worldwide stage.

"It was hard", he continued. "But we have a very strong team in terms of our mindset". Five of France's starters in the first group match had never played in the World Cup, including Mbappe.

For the tournament in Russia, Santos brought 13 players from the Euro 2016 squad, including nine of the players who started in the final against France. "We know it's a special game for us, I don't know for him". It will be very hard for us.

The first match of the day will be played between France and Argentina in Kazan at 7.30 this evening while Uruguay will meet Portugal in Sochi later at 11.30 tonight.
