  • Luis Suarez Posts Heartwarming Message To Messi After Argentina Exit

"It seems that the four games we won before this one are worth nothing, but that's not true", Tabarez said.

16' - First real attempt on goal from Mbappe who attempted to head the ball in but hit it just over the bar.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez shared a attractive message for Leo Messi following Argentina's shocking exit from the FIFA World Cup.

"I'm proud of my team mates - they were lions", said skipper Godin. The 1998 champions will next face either Brazil or Belgium on Tuesday in St. Petersburg.

Antoine Griezmann 8 - Fortunate with his goal, but was a menacing presence throughout, and his free-kick delivery for Varane's goal was inch-perfect. Uruguay's Caceres forces Hugo Lloris to stretch out as far as he possibly can and he gets a hand to the ball to keep the lead at 1-0. "It's a nation and people that I love and I have many friends there".




Goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann helped France to beat Uruguay 2-0 and book a place in their second consecutive FIFA World Cup semi-final.

Edinson Cavani will have to "destroy science" if he is to feature for Uruguay in their World Cup quarter-final against France, according to Adil Rami. His exceptional hat-trick against Bolivia ensured that Argentina would make it through to the finals of the World Cup but the side flattered to deceive during their stay in Russian Federation. I do not think about the future too much. Fans might have lost Ronaldo and Messi, but they surely won't miss a great game. "He's an important player, but France isn't just one player".

Heading into the match, Uruguay had been unbeaten in 2018 and Muslera had the best save percentage of any goalkeeper at the tournament who had played more than one match.

France forward Kylian Mbappe, who had ripped apart Argentina in the previous round with his directness and pace, wasted a good opportunity to open the scoring in the 15th minute when Olivier Giroud headed across the box to him but the 19-year-old's looping header was off-target.

Surprisingly, the team which has received the fewest yellow cards in Russian Federation - just one - is Uruguay, the team who traditionally resort to the dark arts to win. We both played in attack.
