Tabarez admitted not many teams score headers from set-pieces against his side but refused to blame his goalkeeper Fernando Muslera for letting Griezmann's shot slip through his fingers for France's second.

McCarthy, though, was heavily critical of Colombia's approach while appearing on Yahoo Sport's daily World Cup show and labelled the petition as a "nonsense".

Belgium took advantage of some an overly attacking Brazilian approach at the Kazan Arena to take a 2-0 lead by half-time.

Griezmann didn't celebrate what was his third goal of the tournament.

"I have a good team that still has plenty of room for improvement", he said. He got his head to the ball and sent it into the far corner behind Muslera. Last time out the Scandinavian side booked their last eight spot by beating Switzerland 1-0 thanks to a goal from winger Emil Forsberg.

"That's only natural. All players, regardless of their talent, at that age are learning", added the French coach. "This is the kind of thing that I will discuss with the players in the locker room".

England boss Gareth Southgate believes Harry Kane is among a group of talented young players who could challenge Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at the top of the game.

"But I have not seen a game like that before and how they behaved".

On Friday the first two quarter finals will be played, with Uruguay facing France, while Brazil will take on Belgium.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino told President Vladimir Putin that everyone had fallen "in love with Russia" during the World Cup, during a meeting Friday at the Kremlin.

Former France and Manchester United footballer Louis Saha lavished praise on his compatriot Kylian Mbappe today, saying he has the potential to become the next Thierry Henry.

France forward Antoine Griezmann (left) vies for the ball against Uruguay defender Diego Godin at the World Cup on July 6.

Mbappe put in a match-winning performance in the last 16 of the World Cup in Russian Federation as he netted a brace and won a penalty for Les Bleus to help them beat Argentina 4-3 and clinch a place in the quarter-finals.

Cavani scored two goals in the round of 16 win over Portugal then limped off with a calf injury, so Uruguay had desperately hoped to have him fit for the match at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.
