Suarez Says Rivalry With Ronaldo Different When Playing for Uruguay, Barcelona

Ruben Holloway

Given their ages - Messi is 31 and Ronaldo 33 - this could be the last the world sees of the pair, who have monopolized the world player of the year award for the last 10 years, on the biggest stage of all. Uruguay, however, soon demonstrated their hunger to win, with Cavani's one-touch curler. This is the third time that this record has changed hands in Russian Federation, with Ronaldo and Ricardo Quaresma having both broken it during the group stage.

"It's not the time to talk about the future of the coach, the players, the squad", he said, "but rest assured that this national team will continue to be one of the best in the world". He won it, found a team-mate, and then allowed himself a five-second break, resting his hands on his knees as Uruguay played around him.

Germany lost on Wednesday despite dominating in possession - 69 percent to 31 percent - and leading South Korea in shots on goal. The normally rock solid Neuer spilled a free kick in the first half but his counterpart, Jo Hyeon-woo, didn't put a foot wrong.


Tabarez said: 'When I walked out to the pitch I could hear our captain saying that we are playing for the father, the mother, the neighbour the brother and to give it your best. "We will have to work collectively to try to contain him, in order to try to limit the effect he can have". He will be relieved that Jose Gimenez is back in contention after missing the game against Russian Federation. Having Gimenez back will solidify Uruguay's defence.

Portugal's flank players created some set-piece sutuations but they couldn't yield the desired equaliser as Uruguay saw off the last anxious moments by doing putting in a heavy defending shift.
