Edinson Cavani 'All but Certain' Not to Start Uruguay vs

We played well, deserved more: Ronaldo

PSG striker Edinson Cavani was the matchwinner, scoring a brace either side of a Pepe equaliser to send Oscar Tabarez's side into the quarter finals against France - and ensure Ronaldo joined fellow five-time Ballon d'Or victor Lionel Messi in being dumped out of the competition on the same day. "I can not talk about his recovery from injury, but I know that he has the desire, the attitude and is making the effort to do everything to be there - it does not only depend on him, though".

The South Americans have conceded just one goal - the joint lowest in the tournament with Brazil - in four straight wins on their way to the showdown in Nizhny Novgorod.

Les Bleus are already even money (2.0) favourites to see off Uruguay in normal time and will be in good spirits after beating Argentina 4-3 in the last 16. "This is different, though - this is a World Cup".

"About Mbappe, everybody knows he's a really good player. It's up to us to put ourselves in a position to bother them", he added.

Suarez spoke at a press conference after the session and, in quotes reported by goal.com, the Barcelona forward said of Cavani: "The two goals he scored the other day, the team work he has in general, his physical exertion...all of it is important".

"He doesn't know who we are or what we must do to be successful in football. Making them respect us".

And on Saturday night, another Parisian, Edinson Cavani, scored both goals for Uruguay as it eliminated Portugal, 2-1.

He is fighting for fitness.

"I spoke as a friend - obviously that stays between us".
