Portugal had no Plan B to fall back on to answer Cavani's masterful strikes on either side of Pepe's headed goal in the 55th minute. Real Madrid forward Ronaldo has scored four of Portugal's five goals so far, while Barcelona star Suarez netted against Saudi Arabia and hosts Russia.New ball will be used for the knockout phase.

Recall that Portugal lost to Uruguay and left the 2018 world Cup.

To be fair, Portugal had four impressive performances in Russian Federation, including the one against Uruguay at the Fisht Stadium.

"Now it's not the time to talk about the future".

Rumours had it that Cristiano Ronaldo, a Portugal national will be retiring from worldwide football after a shocking exit from the World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation following their 2-0 defeat to Uruguay.

It is still unclear if Cavani will start the France game on the bench or not.

"No team can win with one player alone", Portugal coach Fernando Santos said. "We're going out with heads held high and the Portugal team will continue to win things".




Edinson Cavani, who failed to finish the match after suffering a late injury, scored a superb goal in each half, and although Pepe scored in-between, it was not enough to halt the Uruguayans, who have now won all four of their matches so far in Russian Federation. "That is our best chance against any adversary, and we know that France will be very tough indeed".

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo helps injured Uruguay forward Edison Cavani off the field in their last 16 clash.

When Portugal's football legend Luis Figo captained his national team to the semi-final of the 2006 World Cup, Ronaldo scored his first World Cup goal.

"Uruguay is a south-American team very hard to play", Deschamps told French television program Telefoot on Sunday.

"You don't need any greater motivation than to see what is in play tomorrow, in the last 16 of the World Cup against the European champions".

"We are here to play all seven matches, right up until the final, and we will see what happens", he said.

"This is a World Cup and Edi's form is very important, but there are players who can do it in the same way, and we hope even better than him".
