The reigning European champions are participating in their seventh World Cup. He won the small final against West Germany (2-1) in 1966 in England. On the last day of the group stage, against Iran (1-1), Cristiano Ronaldo did not show his best face, missing a penalty. He was also noted as the author of a bad gesture, which earned him a yellow card but he could have been excluded. The Portuguese star will have to refocus to bring his team to the quarter-finals.

But he will have to face the Uruguay of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, who will make every effort to beat the Portuguese giant to reach the quarterfinals of this competition. The winner of this confrontation will find France or Argentina for a place in the last four.

Quarter-finalists four years ago, Luis Suarez and his team-mates want to again pass the hurdle in the round of 16 this year. The coach Oscar Tabarez should trust his eleven-type for this match. This 8th final looks even tighter, although it is Uruguay that has achieved the best results since the start of this World Cup with three wins in three games in the group stage, while Portugal has had to settle for a success and two draws.
