  • Cavani Ronaldo and Suarez

Gary Neville heaped praise on Lucas Torreira after Uruguay set up a World Cup quarter-final against France and knocked out Portugal in the process.

Uruguay are due to play France in the last eight on Friday in Nizhny, and coach Oscar Tabarez said he was "worried" for Cavani.

Speaking to ITV, Neville said: 'The two centre-backs played well against Cristiano Ronaldo tonight but everything that came into that box they had to clear.

Veteran defender Pepe - a familiar face and former Real Madrid team-mate - had Portugal back on level terms within 11 minutes of the second half. "I just felt this little pain and I couldn't go on".

Earlier today, France outlasted Argentina, ending yet another attempt at World Cup glory by Lionel Messi.

When and what time is the round of 16 match between Uruguay vs Portugal?

It was followed by Little House on the Prairie in 1935, On the Banks of Plum Creek in 1937 and By the Shores of Silver Lake in 1939.

Cavani switched play with a long cross to Luis Suarez and continued his run to head home a pinpoint deep cross from the Barcelona forward and give Uruguay a seventh-minute lead.

And after Portugal equalised with Pepe's header in the 55th minute, it was Cavani again finishing a flawless Uruguay counter in the 62nd with a shot from just inside the penalty area that caught Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio slightly out of position and curled inside the far post.

Forty million Argentinians will demand to know why Messi & Co. are returning home early after failing to win it for a third time, whereas nobody really envisaged Portugal as World Cup winners in Russian Federation.

Uruguay and Portugal have never faced each other at a World Cup before. Godin is an expert at keeping clean sheets, as the leader of an Atletico defence that is the most formidable in the European club game - they kept 34 in all competitions last season - and of an Uruguay side that has not conceded a goal in 2018 in six games.

Mbappe, the first teenager since Brazilian great Pele in the 1958 final to score two goals in one World Cup match, then took over to send Argentina slumping out of the finals before the quarter-final round for the first time since 2002.

In the U.S., Uruguay vs. Portugal aired live on Fox and was live-streamed, along with the rest of the World Cup, on fuboTV (sign up for a free seven-day trial).

The opening goal against Portugal was the first time this World Cup we saw the full extent of just what a fully unleashed Cavani and Suarez might be capable of doing.
