Uruguay: Cavani injury a ‘worry’; France ‘won’t be easy’

"Now it's not the time to talk about the future", Ronaldo said after Portugal's 2-1 loss to Uruguay at the World Cup.

"Now we have a very strong opponent in France".

Ronaldo was powerless to stop European champions Portugal exiting Russian Federation 2018 on Saturday as Edinson Cavani's brace sent Uruguay into the quarter-finals.

In 2010, Uruguay reached the semi-finals, but without Suarez who got a red card in the quarter-final.

Ronaldo's hat-trick in a thrilling 3-3 opening draw against Spain helped light the competition up, but after that, he netted just one goal, in the side's 1-0 victory over Morocco.

So we start heading towards the quarter finals without (Holland and Italy) Germany, Portugal and Argentina.

Portugal defender Pepe made Uruguay pay for sitting back when he leapt unmarked to head in a cross from Raphael Guerreiro after a short corner to level the match at 1-1 in the 55th minute.

At 33, many feel we have seen the last of Ronaldo the World Cup, although the player himself shunned questions on the issue after the defeat against Uruguay.

Ronaldo played a pivotal role in France during Portugal's triumphant campaign two years ago, and during the tournament in Russian Federation he became Europe's top worldwide goal-scorer and only second in the world to Iran's Ali Daei.

The two share similar traits as players: they are fiercely competitive, possess a work-rate as monstrous as their goal-scoring records and are capable of producing moments of beauty with the ball.

"There is another tournament starting in September and of course we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the younger players grow", Santos said.

"Happy for what happened today, I hope we can go further", Cavani said. But it counted for nothing in the end as the 2010 champion failed to make good use of the ball before losing a penalty shootout to Russian Federation.
